When you are a couple trying to think of exciting new dishes to prepare for supper, it can be a challenge.  Every recipe of interest seems to feed 4-6.

Granted I remember telling this sad story to mother years ago when she was living in her apartment and she told me “well try cooking something interesting for one!!!”

Our meals often come from inspirations as much as looking in the fridge and thinking what can we do with what we have.

Costco had pork tenderloins on special.  Pat and I had an inspiration.

When we went to the movie Julie and Julia (about Julia Child) we came home and prepared a Julia Child recipe.  Pork Tenderloin en Croute.  (a tenderloin wrapped with prosciutto ham and puff pastry baked in an oven)

So that had to be our meal.  I went off to buy the puff pastry and the ham (which turned out to be half the cost of the meal) and we prepared it tonight.

It is lightly snowing and I will have to probably head off early in the morning to clear the sidewalks and driveways in the neighbourhood, so it was nice to just work in the kitchen preparing dinner on a Sunday night with no concern that we have to get to work in the morning.

A wonderful meal but more food than we could eat.  Not a boring meal for two.
