On A Mission...My list for 12.21.2012

My Mission:
A list of 112 things to do before the SUPPOSED, "end of the world" - 12.21.2012

Oh yes & By the way, check out this awesome little countdown! -------------------------------------------------------------------------->

Okay, Okay - so just hold it there a quick little second...Let me just set one thing strait:

As a believer in Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior - The Bible says in Matthew 24:36
That the Day and Hour are Unknown:
"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."

So I don't believe the world will end on that day. Something significant, maybe. But I'm not scared to say the least. Only god himself knows...I guess only time will tell.

So what's the point of all this? Well, I was reading a friend of mines blog, and she is currently doing 101 in 1001 days. I thought it was a good idea...a GREAT idea! So here I am...Instead of 12.21.2012 being a date of something negative the people and the media are making it out to be - personally, I want to make it a positive one. A goal for myself. I can't say I've ever made a goal for myself. So why not 112 of them...Lol! I'll be sure to keep the list who's with me!?!? :D :D :D

#88 - New Wardrobe & #24 - Lose 40lbs

Alrighty...So I found some deals I just couldnt pass up! I didn't realize there were so many clearance clothes online!...uh-oh this could do more bad than good! Eeekkk...but now I've vowed not to buy anymore until I keep working at #24! 6 Down, 34 To Go! Whoop, whoop! I suppose I better take a "before" picture now before I lose anymore! Ooppps :P I also got rey two shirts and a pair of jeans. (He desperately needs new clothes...even more than me!)

Here's what I got anyhow! And they fit perfectly! (But not for long, hehe!) I'm always scared to shop online for that one reason...

#58 - New Recipe!

...And man was it Delish! It was thee most tender pork loin I have ever had!...Even more tender than the crockpot! - and just as easy ;) I enjoyed doing this one, I know I have many, many, more months to go...but man if every meal turns out like this, I may end up using a new recipe several times a month!

Roasted Pork Loin:
* 3 cloves garlic, minced
* 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
* salt and pepper to taste
* 2 pounds boneless pork loin roast
* 1/4 cup olive oil
* 1/2 cup white wine

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2. Crush garlic with rosemary, salt and pepper, making a paste. Pierce meat with a sharp knife in several places and press the garlic paste into the openings. Rub the meat with the remaining garlic mixture and olive oil.

3. Place pork loin into oven for 2 hours, turning and basting with pan liquids. After 2 hours remove roast to a platter. Heat the wine in the pan and stir to loosen browned bits of food on the bottom. Serve with pan juices.

I served it with salad and Cous-Cous...
