2 pork tenderloins
little bag of baby potatoes
3 carrots
6 little peppers
3 pieces of celery
handful of big mushrooms chunked (my daughter hates them)
handful of chunked red onion (a quarter of a big one)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Garlic Powder (I prefer the real stuff but it’s growing on the kitchen table*)

I preheated the oven to 450, cut up all of the veggies except for the baby potatoes, threw them into a big bowl , mixed in a bit of olive oil, garlic and dill and mixed it. Then I had the two tenderloins (whole) in separate roasting dishes. Tossed them in the garlic, dill and oil and surrounded them with the veggies. Didn’t totally cover it though.

Put them in the oven for 35 minutes to start, then checked – not done. My oven cooks unevenly so I had to rotate the dishes once or twice during that time to stop the veggies from burning. So, I flipped the tenderloins over and mixed up the veggies and put them in for another 12 minutes. PERFECT.

The Kids (well, the younger adults in the house) LOVED it. Pretty good. Didn’t need as much olive oil though…mmmm

Garlic is gorgeous to grow in a pot. For real!
