Ahh Thursdays! They are usually the hardest day of the week for me as I always wish they could just be Friday but am always disappointed there is another day before I can just unwind for the weekend with extra help from the hubby with the kids. It is also usually the day we used to order food in since I am almost always running on empty energy wise and making dinner feels like a chore.

These are the days I reserve for meals like this. Easy meals I don’t need to worry about watching on the stove top as the kids run around me throwing legos and trying to pry open every can of play doh we own (I can NOT stress enough the level of hate I have for those two toys that will create a mess and get smashed into fabrics or cause you to have severe foot pain when you step on them). I even bought special bags to store the blocks in and a great organizing rack for the play doh, but it still ends up EVERYWHERE. Any parents have any tips for me on containing them?

  1. Oh my gosh that looks SO yummy! We tend to have a schedule of the same meals.. Would love to add something like this in for something a bit different!

  2. oh my this looks delicous! Within the last few years I developed a severe chicken allergy, pork has been a lifesaver. Thanks for sharing a new way for me to enjoy it!

  3. This would be a fantastic meal. It looks so delicious and easy to make. I am going to try this recipe for sure.

  4. This looks so delicious. I will have to try making this recipe this weekend. I am sure my family will love it.

  5. That’s a nice hearty meal. Just like the one my family likes when they come home from a busy day of going going going!

  6. That looks delicious. I was struggle with finding ways to make pork and this one looks easy and something the whole family would like.

  7. Now that is how you cook pork! Dang I can taste it already! I like to do a lot with Pork because it is so much cheaper than beef. This is definitely a recipe I have to put to use next week! We have pork scheduled for Tuesday!

    1. Yes! It is a fun deviation from chicken at roughly the same prices. I love cooking with pork, especially in the summer.

        1. The size of the roast I used about a pound and a half and it was the pork loin. If you were to use a tenderloin and roast it for the same amount of time it would be super dry. The flavors certainly can be used on any cut of meat, but to cook the tenderloin I would stick to 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes. You’d have to roast the vegetables for longer, but certainly it can be done. šŸ™‚

          1. I have a pork tenderloin that 4.25 lbs. I’m really looking forward to trying your yummy recipe. How long and what temp would you suggest?

          2. For a tenderloin that size, I would recommend cooking it 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours at 425 or until the meat thermometer reads 145-160 degrees. Hope this helps!

  8. The picture adds to the appeal of this recipe. It’s nice to have the option of using pork or chicken. I agree with you, Thursday is sort of a disappointment when you want it to be Friday.

  9. Oh wow, amazing as always. What I wouldn’t give to have dinner at your place just once! Wowie! Looks great!

  10. Oh I love pork and yet never thought of this type of glaze. It sounds amazing… and I will definitely be giving it a try šŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing

  11. This dish sounds delicious and ideal for a hearty homecooked meal. I am so excited to hear about your upcoming e-book too!

  12. What a wonderful looking meal. I have a pork tenderloin in the freezer that I should thaw to make this. I pinned it too so I can find it later. =)

    1. I was wondering about using Pork tenderloin, also, since there are only two of us. Would I decrease the cooking time, or do the veggies slightly longer than the meat? Sounds delicious!

      1. You can still use the flavoring but would need to adjust the cook time. I would stick to 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes/per pound. Enjoy!

        1. Yes, definitely for an hour, maybe a bit longer, like an hour and 15 mins. For a roast that size you would want to keep a thermometer handy.

  13. That looks amazing! I’m going to try this with chicken and see how it turns out. We’re kosher, so no pork for us.

    1. I made the pork roast and added some sage….YUM! I had some thawed chicken breasts and used the extra rub… Really great!!! Kids loved it too.

  14. That looks so spectacularly yummy! I’m going to make it this weekend. I’m sure it’s going to be a hit!

  15. That looks like a delicious dinner and it’s so different from what I normally serve! I think my family would love this and you have made it look so easly to make!

      1. Made this tonight. Loved it! I added some onion and celery to the vegetables. Thank you for such an easy and quick dinner recipe.

    1. My family and I loved it!!! I actually made this at my sisters one night intending to bring it back to my mom n dad……Let’s just say it never made it home my niece n nephew loved it, especially the glazed veggies!!!! You know how hard it is to get a 18, and 22 year old to put veggies on their plate?? lol They’re worse than little kids cause they think they’re so grown. Thanks for a tasty recipe!

      1. It’s great that they liked the veggies so much. I can’t imagine children who don’t love veggies. Mine are 24 and 21 and my daughter refused to eat meat even as a very young child. In 24 years I think she has had chicken maybe six times in her life and that is the only meat she has ever eaten. My 21 year old son will eat anything that you put in front of him. Needless to say I have never had any problems with them eating veggies. (Gasp, my kids even very young has loved tofu as well).
