I'm really bad at this

The pre-deployment process has swallowed me whole the last couple of months.  That Nice Man I Lived With is going with his work friends in the mountains to fulfill a lifelong dream of hanging out with goats for a year.  Here is my current favorite (last minute dinner guest) recipe:

Herb-Roasted Pork Tenderloin
1/4 C soy sauce
1/4 C Worcestershire sauce
1/4 C vegetable oil
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp marjoram
1 tsp sage
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 and 1/2 lb pork tenderloin
Stir together first 11 ingredients in a shallow dish or zip lock
freezer bag.  Prick pork with a fork, and place in marinade, turning
to coat.  Cover or seal and let stand at room temperature for 30
minutes or chill 2 hours. Remove from marine and place prok on a a
rack in a roasting pan.  Bake at 350 for 40 minutes or until 160

I keep all the ingredients in the house and I usually grab a couple pork tenderloins when they're on sale at Sam's Club or Publix and stick them in the freezer.  My mother grills this, but I really prefer the oven.  We take the left over marinade, add some brown sugar and cook it in a sauce pan while the tenderloin cooks to make a nice glaze at the end.

I'll try this blogging thing again in a few months.  Maybe... Hopefully.
