National Pork Month, and a Friday Preview

| October 17, 2011 | 2 Comments

Shawn says that dinners in our house are completely unpredictable (he’s right).  Sometimes dinner is something simple — like Quick Chicken Parmesan. Other times it’s a step off the beaten trail like Bacon and Kale Fried Rice. I like variety … and so do the kids.

Still, despite loving variety, I’ve fallen into a slump with proteins. It’s been chicken or vegetarian (with an occasional fish thrown in now and again) for awhile now. We need a wee bit more protein variety in the rotation. So when I heard that October is National Pork Month, and Costco and the National Pork Board asked me to be part of a campaign where I’d develop and share a family favorite pork recipe, it was just the catalyst I needed to break free.

I’ll be sharing a recipe for pork tenderloin on Friday (hint: it involves some of my favorite flavors: garlic and sage), so be sure to check back then. I’ll also have a pretty cool giveaway.

In the meantime, here are a few resources for delicious pork recipes:

- Quick Pork and Peanut Stir-Fry

- Pulled Pork Sandwiches

- PorkBeInspired.com

- Costco’s In the Warehouse

Oh, and one more thing: this week Costco has a special on pork tenderloin, which is a great lean cut of meat. It’s $2 off a package.
