After getting the house/dog sitter settled in, we headed off for our normal two week time share vacation at Marco Island, FL. I didn’t make the trip last year but came this time as I had a piece of property I needed to arrange to sell – left from my family.
I’m not a big fan of heading to the heat of Florida, soon after the cool fall finally replaces the summer heat at home and one of the reasons for the RV is so we can travel with the dogs. But, alas, Bev and Pat really like this trip so it stays on the agenda but it may be a fly-down-there-for-them from now on while I dog-sit.
I’ve posted about The Charter Club before but here is a brief recap via shots from our balcony.
Our first in-condo meal was courtesy of Pam at For The Love Of Cooking using her recipe for Pork Tenderloin Diane. Please check Pam’s site for photos and the recipe which I followed as written but made double the sauce and served it by individual plate rather than on a platter. I served it over potatoes mashed on the plate and a salad that Bev whipped up.
I added sauce to the potatoes then topped with the meat then a little more sauce. Since I’ve become a fan of lemon butter sauce I thought the meat was very good, but it was a bit over powering for the potatoes – solution: a piece of meat and some potatoes in each bite. Thanks Pam for a very good meal.
Photos best if enlarged by clicking on them.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
