A Miscellaneous Posting with a recipe...

Good Morning... It is a lovely day today but the picture here was taken this past weekend. 
As you know it was our anniversary and where would my dear husband want to go than to Prosser Brook..
(for you new readers ... Prosser Brook is a small rural place up in the Kent Hills of New Brunswick.  We have a wee old farm up there where we go to get away from time to time...
*get away from what has been my question.*. smile.... I love being home most of the time.. But Terry loves that old place and we go when we can.)
Anyway, he wanted to check and make sure the water had not froze up and such .... The long lane is full of snow... (there's tons of snow up in them thar  so I stayed out in the car while he walked in to check..
I snapped the above pic as I waited...
Guess what I was doing... He was only gone about 25 minutes...
I finished my very own Tim Hortons coffee cozy.. Tim's is Canada's fav coffee shop... Well, it is mine, anyway...
I have been trying to get back into crocheting again after 20 or more years and I could only go in circles..
In previous posts I showed you the water bottle cozy and I did an apple one which I don't think I posted.. I gave it away to Nancy..
I decided to keep this one and I am making Terry a red one.
He probably won't use
I did finally master the square, though so be on the lookout for dishcloths... Oh, yeah:)  smile...
My Mom turns them out in a few minutes with her knitting needles... I do not knit... much...
Last week I shared a couple of heart felt postings so today we are on a lighter note..
I had said I wanted to share a recipe and here it is...
I made this last summer for the Keepers in St. Martins and they really liked it and Terry and I love it...
It smells delicous cooking in the oven and is oh so tender...

(or use it on Chicken Breasts....)
1 pork tenderloin or 4 chicken breasts.

1/4 cup catalina dressing for salads

 1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. dried thyme

1 Tablepspoon honey

Brush tenderloin or chicken breasts with 2 T. of the catalina dressing.

Then mix the dry ingredients to make a rub which you put on and let sit for 10 minutes..

Place meat in a shallow pan (I use foil to line the pan)
and put in a 375 degrees oven...
Bake for 15 minutes.
Mix honey and the rest of the dressing and brush on meat occasionally.
Bake for another 20 minutes or so until meat is cooked.
Let rest for 5 minutes.


You can also do this in your BBQ or grill pan...
Just grill for 20 minutes and turn occasionally.
Mix remaining dressing with honey and brush meat and grill another 10 minutes or so until cooked.

That is all for this morning my sweet ladies... For those of you who were wondering last week about what I was going to do with the dried pineapples you can check over at my prim blog
to see how they turned out...
Also.... we will be having a Keepers Meeting this coming Saturday morning at 9 a.m.  at our Fellowship Hall in Sussex...
We will (Lord willing)  have coffee and a lesson and a secret activitiy.. (I do not have it all figured out
So if you live near enough please know you will be welcomed..
My email is  if you are interested or have any questions.... It is free of charge, too...

So take care of yourselves and your sweet families until next time ..
May the God of Peace be with you and bless you all.. 
Hugs ....


  1. MMMMM! Looks delicious, Faye! I'd love some for my supper tonight but I don't know what Catalina dressing is - don't know if we have that here...

  2. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. I wish I had this recipe last week. I baked a pork tenderloin and yours looks so good. I will definitely try it next time I bake one. Enjoy your day and God bless.

  3. Faye that pork tenderloin looks so good and your recipe so simple. Loved your dried pineapples. They will be make wonderful decorating additions to any home.

  4. Ummm= I was actually thinking about that pork the other day! I bet if I had known that there was mustard in it I would never have tried it- I'm glad that I tried it before the recipe!! Yummy!! I bought some chicken the other day so I'll give it a go!
    See you Saturday! Can't wait!

  5. Ooooh~ that first picture looks so c-c-cold, Faye! *BRRRRR*
    I love your little coffee cozy~ that is so cute!
    The recipe sounds so yummy... my hubby loves pork tenderloin so I may have to give this a try. Hope you're having a good week, sweetie!

  6. That pork loin looks so good. I made one last night and I wish I had seen this recipe first!

  7. All looks and sounds great.
    Timmie's not for me. I find their coffee weak, I must be the only Canadaian that doesnt like Timmie's lol. Have a great day !

  8. Oh the pork loins were great. I can't wait until the Keepers meeting, so excited!!!!!
