Cajun Pork Tenderloin with Horseraddish Mustard Sauce

Hiya!  Happy Tuesday!  What are you cooking for supper tonight?  Don't know?  How's about this pork tenderloin? 
Oh, and by the way, we're going 1970s yellow tint on all these pictures.  I was a-hungry and didn't stop to properly photograph it.  

So this little PT was originally made by my buddy Ginny for one of our cookbook club dinners, it was quite the hit!  It's got great flavor, it's easy and it feels super fancy because there's a dipping sauce involved.  What is it about a dipping sauce that just makes stuff better?  I don't know...but it does. 

Dipping sauce makes me think of chicken nuggets.  I love chicken nuggets!

But back to PT.  It does require a little planning as you have to let it marinate for no more that 90 minutes.  Directions like "let marinate for no more than 90 minutes" really flare up my OCD tendencies and cause lots of timer setting.  Probably best that I was at work and Brandon is the one that actually put it together.  So really...who knows how long it marinated or what was actually in it.  Brandon and I are quite different when it comes to following food directions...

Or children should be an interesting mix of lots of conflicting personality traits....
