The snow is falling and school is cancelled! Let the snow day festivities begin.
It's been a couple of years since we've had snow in Atlanta so (almost) everyone was super excited about the snow. Before the grass was even covered, snowballs were flying and snowmen were being constructed. I even ran outside with my camera to get a few pictures of our snow covered house.
Mia loves the snow too - can you tell?
It is so fun to see everything covered in snow.
The cold weather and snow had me in the mood for a nice warm meal last night. As luck would have it, crock pot brown sugar balsamic glazed pork tenderloin was on the menu for he snowy night. I put the pork in the crock pot in the morning and the aroma of the roasting pork filled the house all afternoon. By the time we were ready to sit down for dinner, I could hardly wait to taste it. This recipe came from laurasweetspot.com.
Crock Pot Brown Sugar Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin
Mix together the seasonings: sage, salt, pepper and garlic.
Rub over tenderloin. Place ½ cup water in slow cooker; place tenderloin in slow cooker.
1 hour before the roast is finished, mix together the ingredients for the glaze in a small sauce pan: brown sugar, cornstarch, balsamic vinegar, water, soy sauce.
Heat over medium and stir until mixture thickens, about 4 minutes.
Place pork on aluminum lined sheet pan, glaze, and set under broiler for 1-2 minutes until bubbly and caramelized. Repeat 2 to 3 more times until desired crust is achieved.
Serve with remaining glaze on the side.
This pork tasted exceptionally good because it was exactly what I was craving on a snowy winter night. The glaze was perfect and the pork was super tender. I loved it and apparently I wasn't alone because my family gobbled it up too.
I'm off to have some snow adventures today - I have to enjoy it while it lasts because snow doesn't stick around very long in this part of the country. You can be sure that I'll document our snow fun in pictures so that I can share them with all of you very soon.
Have a great snow day - Ciao!
