Oven Roasted Pork Loin

Evening friends! Today was the last day of Lacrosse camp for the girls. They had a blast and love the sport! I guess it will be cheering for football in the fall and playing lacrosse in spring. Go Dawgs!

While they went to Lacrosse camp, I took Barre. Just realized I have not changed out of my clothes from 8 hours ago. I love my leggings…so comfy! The girls were starving, so we ate some leftovers and then went to the public library. We came home and the girls played, read, and watched TV. I fell asleep on the couch and no one woke me up! It was GLORIOUS!!! Then I made this for dinner. =)

Oven Roasted Pork Loin

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Rub your pork loin (mine was 2.5 pounds) with a couple tablespoons of olive oil, and a combo of salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder (next time I will add some fennel seeds) on all sides, about a tablespoon of each.
Put your pork in a shallow roasting dish or cast iron pan.
When the oven reaches 400 degrees, cook your pork fat side up for about 10 minutes.
Then lower your heat to 350 degrees and cook for about 40 more minutes (usually I do 20 minutes per pound) Use a thermometer. USDA says let it get to 160 and take it out, but I take mine out at 150 and let rest with aluminum foil for 10-15 minutes.
