i need to make a meal for another family tonight, and i think this will be it! with applesauce, maybe some green beans or a salad……. yum

Roasted Pork Loin with vegetables
2-lb boneless pork loin
2 tbsp dijon mustard
¼ c breadcrumbs
2 ½ pounds red new potatoes, halved
1 pound white button mushrooms, stems trimmed, washed and dried well
1 pint grape tomatoes
Preheat oven to 450. Run pork with salt and pepper and Dijon mustard. Coat top and sides of roast with breadcrumbs, leaving ends uncovered. Place pork in baking dish, and cook until no longer pink inside, about 1 hour*.
Meanwhile, in another rimmed baking sheet, toss potatoes and mushrooms with a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. Season with salt and pepper. Place them in the oven (on a shelf below the pork) about 30 minutes into baking. About 15-20 minutes later, add tomatoes to the vegetables, tossing to combine. Cook until potatoes are tender, about 10-15 minutes more.

*made this tonight and it totally took more than an hour. stupid pork loin. i can never time them right. it took more like two hours to cook and it was less than 3 pounds. just a warning, if you try this one.
