Honey Dijon Pork Loin Roast

Here, I am doing more menu planning with I'm an Organizing Junkie and finding more deals at Pick N Save for $5 Dinners .

Pork Loin Roasts were on sale at Pick N Save this week for $1.99/lb and it's normally $3.99/lb. I scooped up a 6 lb. roast and cut it into thirds. Now, I have two dinners in the future and a Honey Dijon Pork Loin Roast on my menu this week.
Here is what I am serving this week:
Sunday: Honey Dijon Pork Loin Roast (see recipe below)

Monday: Semi-Homemade Spaghetti Dinner

Tuesday: Chicken and Pasta

Wednesday: Pulled Pork Sandwiches from the leftover pork from Sunday

Thursday: Leftover Buffet (Soccer tonight:-)

Friday: Eat Out
Honey Dijon Pork Loin Roast8 Servings

2 lb boneless pork loin

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Season the pork loin with salt and pepper.

3. In a small bowl, mix the vinegar, mustard, honey and herbs together. Reserve honey mustard sauce for pork.

that looks awesome. I love me a good pork loin roast. Do you ever have problems with it staying moist while reheating as leftovers? this seems to be my problem. It's great the first day, not so much the next. Or, is this why you make the pulled pork sandwiches with it.

also... my curiosity and love of food leads me to my next question. do you always know where you are going out to dinner on fridays when you plan for the week or do you wing it. I would love to know where you eat out - if you want to add that to your menu... ;)
