I finally decided what I was going to make in honor of my Mother’s birthday. I chose a pork tenderloin, cooked on the grill, herb roasted potatoes, cooked on the grill, a fresh tomato salad with mint and basil, and fresh green and yellow beans.
The potatoes were the first thing I prepped. I peeled and cut several russets and tossed them with some olive oil, salt and pepper. I went to the garden and cut some fresh thyme and rosemary and added it to the pan. The final touch, I sliced up four cloves of garlic and added them to the mix.
Next up, I made the tomato salad. Diced tomatoes, minced garlic, salt, pepper, basil, mint, and olive oil. Easy, simple and OH SO DELICIOUS!
The tenderloin was a pre seasoned variety – peppercorn – our favorite, so the only thing I had to do with it was pull it from the package and put it on the grill.
I snapped the ends off the beans and once the potatoes and meat were done, I quickly steamed them and tossed them with a little butter.
I added a small loaf of whole grain bread and we finished the meal off with some banana bread. It was a wonderful meal, and I know if my Mom had been here, she would have loved it!
