We went away to Krabi, then I got really busy, and before I know it, it's been almost a month since the last blog post.
Anyway, I have not stopped cooking, but I won't recount all the recipes in the past few weeks. I will just highlight a few standout dishes.
First up, I've finally found my perfect roast pork loin recipe. It's from the Barefoot Contessa, one of my favorite chef and cookbook authors.
I used prosciutto from Carecci to wrap the tenderloins. As I mentioned in an earlier post, the prosciutto was slightly dry, but for this purpose it's perfect. I did brine the tenderloin for a few hours before roasting and the meat came out really tender and juicy.
Here it is served with the apple chutney
The other two recipes I want to share are both "healthy" food.
Quinoa zucchini fritters
Chicken, green bean, corn and barley salad
If you are in need of a one dish salad meal, this is it. I used barley instead of farro, but otherwise followed the recipe. It's a very refreshing summer salad that also packs well for lunch the next day.
Back to our regular program next week.
