Have you had a crazy Monday like I have?  If so, then dinner is probably the last thing on your mind.   I usually have a few backup meals in my freezer for days like this.  When I’m tired and the last thing I want to do is cook.   I’d have to say that 30 minutes is usually my time limit before I lose it!  ūüôā

This sounds like a fancy meal, but it’s really not.  It’s so easy, quick and so flavorful! I usually buy a few packs of fresh cranberries this time of year so I can use them throughout  the year.  This is served on top of a Smithfield¬ģ Marinated Roasted Garlic & Herb Pork Loin Filet I bought at Food Lion on my last grocery shopping trip.

Pork with Cranberry and Apple Salad

You can serve the cranberry and apple salad right on top of the pork or on the side.  The house smells so good!  You can make this earlier in the day and chill and serve it cold, but I love it warm.  

Luckily, I had a Smithfield Marinated Roasted Garlic & Herb Pork Loin Filet for a quick meal.  I love that these are perfectly seasoned for any night and have Real Flavor Real Fast.  They also carry tenderloins and roasts in many different flavors.

I’ve been cooking my pork loins in the my air fryer lately and I LOVE it! It’s so easy and the pork stays moist. Here’s the one I have.

To cook the pork loin in the air fryer, you’ll need to preheat the air fryer for 3 minutes. I set mine on the 390F setting. I cook it for 10 minutes, flip and cook for another 10 minutes or until it reaches 145F.
