Stuffed, Barbecued Pork Loin
Grilled Potatoes with Mustard and Vinegar
Sautéed Courgette (Zucchini) and Spinach

Cooking time:  60 minutes plus 10 earlier for menu      Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

        The Barbecued Pork makes enough for leftovers.  If you have any of the summer squash left, refrigerate and use it with the salad - just shred and toss with the lettuce.

Barbecued Stuffed Pork Loin

Total time: 60 minutes     with 10 earlier
   This is marinated for a few hours in a cross between a brine and a classic pork rib sauce.  I stuffed it with mushrooms and ham and cooked it on the barbecue. After removing the pork from the marinade I boiled the marinade for 5 minutes, reducing it to use both as a basting sauce (some of it) and a dipping sauce (the rest).  There is enough pork for two meals.  Be sure to save any leftover sauce for the leftover pork!

    We grill potatoes a lot in summer; with a lot of variations.... This one is almost like a hot potato salad.
