Perfect marinated pork tenderloin - Dear Crissy

Blogging Fun With #PinkPork – Part 1

Remember that big celebration we did last month about Ohio farmers donating 1,000,000 meals of pork to the foodbanks?  We got really excited, cooked some pork to celebrate, threw a Pinterest Contest, did some fun stuff on Facebook and partnered with some bloggers.

We calmed down, but decided the party shouldn’t be over yet.  So we’d like to share some highlights from those bloggers and their comments, with our commentary added:

I’ve copied actual comments that you can read on her blog and shared what I thought when I read the comment:

I need to take my pork tenderloin out of the freezer I’m thinking = we’re thinking cool, you must’ve bought at least 10 on your last shopping trip to have had extra to freeze.  Now that’s a pork hero!

This is a meal the whole family would enjoy = of course, because it has pork in it!

I love that it has a tint of pink…a perfect post workout source of protein = You know how your cheeks get a tint of pink in them when you’re falling in love or having a good workout.  Yeah, you got it girl – that’s exactly how we like to see people enjoying their pork.

This looks divine – The 2nd definition of divine is: excellent; delightful.  Yes Jess, you are right!

Zesty, delicious, I want to make this now.  = Well Norma how do you think we feel EVERYDAY at work and there’s not even a real kitchen in our office!?! #pityparty

So plump & juicy – Yep Nicole, that’s exactly how we like our pork, but that’s not likely to become our next tag line.  We already have trouble with misspellings of pork as it is.

I understand how to cook pork but a friend does not so this is getting sent to her. She will surely thank you!! – We believe the world needs more friends like this.  Barb – we’d like to get your personal contact info.  You sound like the kind of person that makes the world a better place!

I learned several years ago, that the best way to serve pork is slightly pink, never gray. Cooking by temperature instead of by time makes that easy to do. The first internal meat thermometer I bought was a complete game changer for me. I used to think that I didn’t like pork very much, but what I really didn’t like was dried out, over cooked pork!

NO commentary needed here!
