Pork Tenderloin with Mustard Seeds
Balsamic Potato Salad
Grilled Zucchini (Courgette)

Cooking time:  35 minutes for menu          Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

      I get a small pork tenderloin but it's usually around 14oz.  Any leftovers go into sandwiches the next day. Grilling vegetables is quick, easy and delicious.

Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Mustard Seeds

Total time: 35 minutes
   This is fun to cook on the barbecue grill: all the mustard seeds pop as they get hot.  The rub makes the tenderloin rather black, but not too spicy.  The sauce helps keep it moist.  Remember, slightly pink is perfect!

Grilled Zucchini (Courgette)

     Did I mention that the hubs does all of the outdoor cooking?  He is convinced that he can cook anything on the grill.  When he saw the pile of zucchini becoming a mountain last summer he tried this.... and it was good.

Grilled Zucchini (Courgette) Ingredients:


Note: You can fry them in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat for 8 minutes a side, until they develop light brown spots.  Use 1 tbs butter and 1 tbs olive oil.  They will absorb and then release the oil.  You can drain them briefly on paper towels before adding salt, pepper and Parmesan.
