Hoisin Pork Tenderloin
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoon ketchup
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1-lb pork tenderloin, trimmed
In a large bowl or zip-lock bag, combine the first 6 ingredients. Then add the pork to the marinade while giving it a good massage to work in the flavors. Let it marinade for at least 2 hours in the fridge.
You can bake it at 350F for 45 minutes or you can grill it! I used a grill pan but a charcoal grill would give it an extra yummy smokiness as well.
I stir-fried some zucchini as a side and garnished with cilantro. If you are feeling some starch, the pork tenderloin would be delicious over a bed of white rice!
“I became a Christian while making this movie. When I started to make it and I saw all these kids come through the drop box – it was like a flash from heaven, just like these kids with disabilities had crooked bodies, I have a crooked soul. And God loves me still. When it comes to this sanctity of life issue, we must realize that that faith in God is the only refuge for people who are deemed unnecessary. This world is so much about self-reliance, self-worth, and self-esteem. It’s a total illusion that we can be self-sufficient. Christ is the only thing that enables us.” - Brian Ivie

Cook rotini, sauté mushrooms and spinach with 2 pinches of salt, and grill/bake chicken breast. Then combine everything together with the blue cheese dressing and add sriracha to taste. Put the leftovers (if there are any!) in the fridge and voila, pasta salad!
I need to be honest.
I’m not lovely.
Today, as I looked at this encouraging street art my husband stumbled upon in Chicago and decided to upload it, I paused.
I’m not beautiful. I have an ugly heart. I’m selfish.
And I hate those parts of me. I want to be lovely. All the time lovely.
When I dig deep, I know it’s because I’m a sinner.
I have an ugly heart that only Jesus can make beautiful.
And He does.
I am beautiful.
