MemorialDayRecipesWe've been producing our weekly (thought)wide blog series here at Orgwide for 4 years next month. Many of you have sent us notes and emails expressing your appreciation for our point of view on the variety of topics we've explored. From Leadership to communication, from competencies to adult learning theory, from work/life balance to eLearning authoring tools, from problem solving skills to customer service tips – we've covered the gambit in nearly 200 blog posts over the years.

The blogs with the highest response rate always seem to be our "recipe for success" blogs. These efforts usually carry a title like "3 Tips to..." or "4 Steps for better..." and are often forwarded by many of our readers to their friends and co-workers. At the end of the day, our blog series is designed to help our readers learn more about the topics that are of the most interest today – and to bring the Orgwide personality to life. Our "we take our work seriously, but not ourselves" attitude is at the heart of every Tuesday (thought)wide blog offering.

Today, in anticipation of the Memorial Day Weekend and the beginning of Summer 2014, we offer you "2 Tips to make this holiday weekend a success" - Two of our Accounting Manager's favorite recipes. She is our resident guru of all things gastric, and if you following these steps – we guarantee a tasty treat. Enjoy the "eats" and we'll look forward to returning to our regularly scheduled blogging on June 3, 2014.

Honey-Gingered Pork Tenderloin

2 ( ¾ pound) pork tenderloins
¼ cup honey
¼ cup oyster sauce
¼ cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon catsup
¼ teaspoon onion powder
¼ teaspoon ground red pepper
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Place tenderloins in an 11x7x11/2 inch baking dish (I use a gallon Ziploc bag). Combine honey and next 9 ingredients, stirring well; pour over tenderloins. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 8 hours (I like overnight best), turning occasionally.

Remove tenderloins from marinade, reserving marinade. Grill tenderloins over medium-hot coals 25 to 35 minutes, turning often and basting with reserved marinade. Pork is done when meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion of tenderloin registers 160.

To serve, slice tenderloin thinly, and arrange on a serving platter or we like to serve as a sandwich on small rolls. Yield: 6 servings

Strawberry Pudding

2- 16oz. frozen strawberries (no sugar added) or fresh
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 lemons
1 box vanilla wafers
1 pint whipping cream (whipped) or cool whip

Let strawberries thaw in large bowl. In another bowl, mix can of sweetened condensed milk and juice of 2 lemons. Stir until thick. When berries thaw, pour condensed milk mixture in strawberries and stir thoroughly. Add whipped cream to this mixture. Place layers of wafers, layers of mixture, continue until you run out. Top with more whipped cream (or cool whip) if desired. Make this the day before if possible.
