Last week I decided to make some meals from the items I have pinned on Pinterest – I didn’t get to make all of them, but here are my opinions on the ones I did make:

The 3-ingredient (pork tenderloin, root beer, bbq sauce) pulled pork was pretty tasty. Both my husband and I enjoyed it. It wasn’t spectacular by any means but I think we would have needed other ingredients for that. The meat was tender and juicy and you could not taste the root beer at all. It is a very good base recipe and I would add some other spices next time.

This sandwich was underwhelming for me. The bean/avocado puree makes for a very nice spread and I will use it again, but it needed stronger flavors. My husband enjoyed it, though.

I made these as an accompaniment to the pulled pork sandwiches and they were very good. You could go a whole bunch of different ways with these depending on what you put on top.

We both enjoyed this pasta dish, but the sauce really merits something more succulent. Maybe next time we will serve it over a nice filet.
So there you have it, a nice batch of meals overall, we didn’t have one bad meal although a couple of them I would play around with and change up a bit. It was definitely nice to have a few new meals in our rotation!!

Claudia,How are you doing?I'm sorry I've been gone for a while… I had to take a break from my computer. :-)Everything looks pretty good! You got me hungry!xoLuciane at HomeBunch.com
Thanks for the update!I appreciate your honesty. Sometimes I think the photos just make our taste buds react. Perhaps our food imaginations are better than the real thing!
These look delicious! I love trying new things! Hope you're having a great week!Blessings,Jill
Shame that the bean avocado puree sandwich didn't turn out as good as it could have. The 3-ingredient one is interesting though. I would have liked if the root beer was palpable to the taste buds but am guessing the pork soaked up most of the flavor.
