Meal 1: Meat and potatoes
White wine-based marinade infuses garlic- and fennel-studded pork loin with big flavor. While it roasts, make your favorite mashed potatoes and stir up the batter for pimiento-flecked corn bread muffins. (They start with boxed mix.) When the pork comes out, turn up the oven and slide in the muffins. As they bake, prepare an herby wine sauce, steam some broccoli and, finally, slice the roast. Dinner is served.
