Forever and Day

I have learned not to promise I will post. My job is insane & if i dont have dinner laid out (defrosted) and planned. We eat out. I say this happens once or twice a week. Mike is great at helping but we have a very picky & very hungry toddler. So maybe, I can ask, how do you handle that toddler? Do you make him something else? Because my mennus, espeically diet menus, are not conduscive to a toddler diet.

Toddler diet: Rice, Noodles, Chicken Nuggets
Adult/P90X diet: grilled pork, cous cous & grilled veggies

See the problem?

So Jayson does like cous cous-not that I can blame him-i think they are fun too!
But i had to heat up some noodles so he would eat.

Here is what Mike and I had: Grilled Pork Cutlets w/lemon garlic sauce
c/o America's Test Kitchen Cookbook

1/4 cup EVOO
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
3 TBSP lemon juice
Pork Tenderloin

Combine oil through garlic and microwave 1 min. Whisk in the lemon juice. Reserve 2 tbsp of the garlic oil as marinade. Add parsely & S&P.

Using a pork tenderion, trim the tenderlion & cut slices. Pound into thin cutlets. Season w/ S&P and drizzle with the garlic oil. Grill until done.

Transfer to plate & drizzle with the sauce.

I amde this with grilled zucchini. Pretty easy recipe
2 zucchini, cut into slices
italian dressing/balsamic dressing etc...

Create a long section of foil,. place this on your grill. Toss zucchini w/dressing & dump onto foil. let it cook and flip often. oh and I added some fresh grated parmesan. Yum! I cannot wait until my garden has zucchini & squash ready for grilling!
