Q: This year I'm hosting a small Christmas dinner at our house and we'll only have three meat-eaters with us. I'd like to have a traditional, meaty, roast __(blank)__ for those guys, but I don't have enough experience to know what I can fix that will be festive yet can be scaled down to feed only three people. I worry that smaller cuts of meat will turn out dry and inedible. Is this worry unfounded? Any recipe recommendations or words of wisdom? Sent by Allison Editor: Allison, this is easy! Make a pork tenderloin. They're hard to mess up, and they are just the right size. Here are two simple recipes: • Quick Recipe: Garlic and Herb Roasted Pork TenderloinRecipe: Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Herbed Cornmeal Rub (pictured above) Readers, what else would you suggest?
