Cool and sunny, a pretty good day for this time of year.

Where are we today ?
             Well its cool again, just barely above freezing last night and all the way up to 8c (46f) today. But hey, we had sunshine and as long as we are out of the wind it's really not too bad. 
          Nice enough to walkabout down the road and by the bush, love the peace and quiet.
       Then we enjoyed some outside reading, perfect weather for it. It's been a while so we will take advantage of every moment we can enjoying our books outside.
       Interrupted by a very noisy woodpecker. Sure was a lot louder than his size. But we can sure deal with that kind of noise, no problem.

a nice sunny spot with no wind
         Then for supper tonight I got my Weber Q out. Sandy had a couple of nice pork tenderloins and I love doing them on our Q. Rubbed with some olive oil and spices then medium low about 20 minutes total, after preheating the grill for 15 minutes on high. Turn a couple of times then done to perfection at 145f internal temperature. So moist and tender, melt in your mouth.
done
let it rest for 10 minutes,covered with foil,the juices
 go back into the meat, then slice about 1 inch thick
         Sandy made a nice huge casserole of scalloped potatoes, mixed veggies and a spring salad mix yummy.
sure hit the spot tonight
         We just had a wonderful day, cool , but as long as the sun is shinning we love it for this time of year.
         Thanks for stopping in for a visit hope your day was a great as ours.

  1. Another great day for you and good food to end it with. At least it's not snowing or raining so at least you're able to enjoy the out of doors.

  6. Another great day for you and Suzie! I love your cheerful blog.
    I have a question re: the Weber; you no longer seem to smoke wood chips in foil when grilling. Is there a reason or is it just not convenient to carry wood chips around? Thanks!

    1. Thanks fro dropping by.
      I do have some wood chips, but I like to save them for cooking meat, about an hour or more, to have an effect.
      Probably tonight, with chicken.

  7. I had to double-check that internal temperature of 145F for the pork tenderloin as I always thought pork had to be cooked to a much higher temperature. But, 145F is now correct and that's what's recommended by the USDA. Apparently, today's pork cuts have way less saturated fat than 20 years ago. Thanks for the tip.

    1. That sure makes a big difference, with todays leaner pork, oh so tender!

  8. Any day that it is not snowing is a great day and a huge bonus if you can sit outside.
