Sunday Dinner

Our menu for tonight’s dinner promises to be very exciting. We are trying several new recipes shared with us by friends and making up a few recipes of our own. It’s really a joint effort between myself, my boyfriend and my mom. I confess, they are doing most of the work. I’m more the idea person! (Teehee)

The pork loin was rescued from the freezer and we searched various cookbooks and the internet for a recipe before finally deciding to make up our recipe. A friend of ours makes a fantastic dry rubbed pork loin and we used his seasonings. Unfortunately, we didn’t exactly have the measurements so we pulled some spices out of the spice drawer and started dumping stuff in the bowl!
Spice line up for our dry rub
The spices in our dry rub are kosher salt, garlic powder, onion powder, hot paprika, dry mustard and course ground pepper. Dump desired amount into bowl and mix together then smash it into your meat (I made boyfriend do that part!)

The pork loin should be cooked on low heat for a long time! Meat should have an internal temperature of 170 when done. Hey, I told y’all this wasn’t one of those detailed food blogs. 🙂

 Our next menu item was recommended by a family friend. This recipe combines a vegetable with one of our all-time favorite ingredients. . .bacon! Cut a cabbage head into four quarters, sprinkle with salt, pepper and seasoned salt. Wrap with two strips of bacon. Wrap bacon-wrapped cabbage quarters tightly in foil and cook on the grill for 45 minutes to an hour. The bacon wasn’t quite crispy enough for us so we unwrapped them and put them in the oven on broil for about 5 minutes. YumEE!
We need a fun name for these!
Our sweet cousins brought us a whole bunch of jonagold apples that they picked straight from an orchard in Ohio. We just had to incorporate these beauties into our meal. We threw in a pan with a stick of butter, brown sugar, white sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon. It’s fruit! It’s good for you. Yum!
Yummy Fried Apples

So just to recap, we had grilled pork loin, bacon wrapped grilled cabbage, twice baked potatoes and cinnamon apples. We were all pretty much stuffed by the time we finished eating, but it was all delicious!

Many thanks to Mamma and Morgan (that’s my boyfriend;) who helped (ok, did most of the work) put this meal together. Yum!

Cheers and Pork!
