TGIJust The Tip day, right?
Yours truly is currently on set for day 6 of The Dude Diet’s glamour shots, and I have to say, it’s pretty unreal. As a cookbook virgin, I obviously had no idea what to expect, but (un?)surprisingly, the photo shoot for your own book RULES. My team is amazing and hilarious, I’ve learned more in a week about food styling and photography than I have in the past 4 years, and everyone appears to love 90s jams, oversharing, and La Croix as much as I do. It’s professional heaven. Plus, the dress code is casual—great news, since I didn’t have time to find the perfect power suit.
God knows I’ll recap all the dirty details of this experience at some point soonish, but if you’re feeling antsy, I’ve been doing my best to share the day-to-day highlights on Snapchat (@serenagwolf). Feel free to come hang. I only joined “Snap” last week because I’m forever late to ze party, but I am INTO IT. In fact, I like it so much it scares me, and I’m pretty nervous about how this platform is going to impact my social life. My roommate/friends/family tolerate my weird food photos in public for the occasional Instagram (especially if I scare them into submission by screaming, “DON’T JUDGE ME! It’s for work!!” really loudly), but Snap is slightly more aggressive. With that said, I told Logan that Snapchat is excellent for increasing one’s internet celebrity, so he’ll probably come around. Daddy loves the spotlight…
I have no seamless segue here, so let’s just abruptly shift the conversation from photo shoots and social media to pork tenderloin, which is the sexy star of today’s Just The Tip. Pork tenderloin is actually one of my favorite cuts of meat because it’s decently cheap, versatile, and delightfully tender and juicy. Unfortunately, most peeps have a deep-seated fear of undercooked pork, and they tend to overcompensate, cooking this relatively small cut of meat well past the point of no return. Bad! To avoid this sad fate (and confidently add something besides chicken to your regular rotation), I urge you to watch and learn my favorite and most trusted method for roasting perfect pork tenderloin. When it comes to life-changing tips, this one’s right up there with idiot-proof chicken breasts and fluffy quinoa, and you’re gonna want it in your arsenal. Trust me.
Happy Friday, friends! Catch you on the flip (aka Tuesday). There will be Asian-y turkey burgers.
