Quick Pork Tenderloin Dinner

It has been too long since I cooked meat and potatoes - I forgot how easy it is.  Salad, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, roast pears, and a little pork tenderloin.  There is no recipe for this because each item is very simple.  Cranberry sauce: it's on the bag - boil a cup of water and a cup of sugar, throw in the berries and cook.  Salad: pull some leaves off a head of lettuce, put 1/2 vinegar 1/2 oil in a jar, shake, and pour.  Potatoes:  peel and cut 2 potatoes into 6 chunks, boil until soft, mash, add salt, milk, and butter until they taste good.  Pork and pears: Salt and pepper raw tenderloin, brown all sides in a skillet on med-high, throw in quartered pears, put whole pan in 400 degree oven.  If you get in the groove, I bet you could have all this on the table in half an hour - the trick is to get them all going at once.
