Another work day, another dinner daydream. You know what we mean. You’re sitting at your desk and 2:00 p.m. rolls around. Suddenly, all you can think is, “Dinner...what the heck am I going to eat for dinner?!” Well, we’ve got you covered, and FYI, the answer to that question is pretty darn delicious. We’re serving up succulent pork tenderloin with custardy shallot-thyme pan stuffing (psst—that’s stuffing made in a pan!) and crisp roasted green beans. To finish things off, the pork is drizzled with a life-affirming fig jam sauce. Talk about a dream come true!
