All with some OJ

I've been on a business trip for the last week and a half. This usually means lots of eating out and when I get back home, I'd just love a home-cooked meal. Unfortunately for me, while the hubster has good intentions, he can't cook worth squat. Part of Operation "Food does NOT come from a box" is teaching him to make some simple meals.

Where to start? I decided to dig back into my college days when it was all about simplicity - and a can of OJ. ;-)

Orange Pork

1/2 C Orange Concentrate
Soy Sauce, Ginger, Salt, Pepper to taste
Pork tenderloins

Preheat oven to 475. Mix ingredients together and set aside some for later. Marinate pork in orange sauce. Place pork into baking dish with marinade and brush. After 15 minutes, turn and brush marinade again. Keep until done. Serve with remaining sauce.

Orange Chicken
1/2 C Orange Concentrate
Worcestershire sauce, cayenne pepper to taste
Salt, Pepper

Rub chicken with salt and pepper to taste. Mix the rest of the ingredients together and brush over chicken. Place chicken in oven - after 10 minutes, turn and brush the marinade over chicken. Keep in oven until done. Service with remaining marinade

Orange Carrots
Thinly slice carrots and place in boiling water until crisp and bright orange. Add honey, butter, ginger, and some OJ concentrate until desired doneness.

ice cubes
2/3 C milk
1/4 C OJ concentrate
honey to taste
splash of vanilla

Mix and enjoy!
