Spice-rubbed Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Squash

Eater rating: 3.9 / 5  3.9166666666667
Tonight we’re eating pork tenderloin rubbed with cumin, cayenne, cinnamon, nutmeg, and garlic. The tenderloin was accompanied by spiced-up, roasted yellow squash and roasted brussels sprouts deglazed with balsamic vinegar.

T: well, that was a great take on a set of ingredients that, as you mentioned, are housewife classics. Brussels sprouts, squash, and pork tenderloin. Of course, only the finest of housewives could hook it up like that :)
A: why, Mr. Tyler, are you callin me a fine housewife?
T: hell no, you ain’t married to nobody.
A: alright, alright, that’s true, that’s true… and thank goodness. I would make a wretched housewife.
T: what are you talking about you would be a killer housewife. All them good eats… ooohee.
A: yeah, but.. I’d have to like.. clean, and shit.
T: haha, yeah, you would
A: suckage.
T: that reminds me this place has been a wreck lately… what’s going on?
A: screw off, buddy. It’s a full-time job looking for a full-time job.
T: yeah, i know. heheh. fun to tell you stuff like that though.
A: and fun to joke meanly back. well, cut to it, my brotha.
T: word. ok, well, i’d have to say my favorite parts were the rub flavors and the balsamic thing with the brussels sprouts.
A: those were my 2 favorite parts, too. Especially because I had set out with a spice theme tonight, and ended up with an overcooked theme tonight. I thought everything on the plate had been cooked for 5 minutes too long.
T: I thought it was all excellent as far as that goes…
A: the squash and brussels sprouts were both on the mushy side.. I prefer them to be crisp. And, the pork wasn’t as tender as it could have been if I had just taken them out just a bit earlier. Damn the www.websudoku.com!
T: if y’all don’t know about sudoku, it’s an incredibly addictive game that uses logic (not math, don’t worry) to fill up squares… well, I could explain it, but you should check it out for yourself.
A: I’ve been attending SA meetings… they haven’t gotten me off the sudoku yet, though.
T: yeah, the first step is admitting you have a problem.
A: well, ok then, i’ve gotten the 1st step down. So, back to the food, hommie. You got your rating in mind?
T: yeah, i do.
A: me too. I give it a 3/5. It was close to a culinary failure.
T: ha, yeah right… ok, I give it a 4/5. It was dang swell. Mom, what do you give it?
L: 4.75/5.
T: cool.
A: dude, i don’t know how you can rate this the same as you rated last night’s meal when last night’s meal was so much better.
T: hey, what gives, i’m entitled to my opinions.
A: yeah, yeah, yeah… alright.
T: word peeps.
A: it’s been good talkin with ya, for the last couple of nights. I surely do hope to see y’all back here again. :)
