While I grew up in a rural area, it was not actually a "farm." There were extended family members and other friends of my parents who did live on a farm. Some of these acquaintances would have a hog that they would raise through the year, and some of us would benefit a bit when butchering time came around.
Considered to be a delicacy in those days was the tenderloin. It did not become sausage, nor did it become chops, but it was a very tender, tasty cut of pork that sometimes found its way sliced into the iron skillet for breakfast. That would be an especially memorable breakfast!
These days, that tenderloin is readily available at the market. Though it is usually pricey, sometimes it is possible to find it at a good sale price. Such was the case here recently.
This made a perfect fall breakfast! The Husband is thrilled to have leftovers!:-)
Such a special breakfast needed a special setting.
Mixing the old with the more recent - perfect for remembering a childhood autumn morning!
