I love summer.  I am talking really love it.  While I would love to sit outside until the sun goes down, that just isn’t practical every day.  They have to get to bed on time at least most of the time which means I can’t just put off dinner until we go inside.  That means getting creative with dinner ideas.  I’m a little intimidated by grilling myself – my uncle tried to teach me once and instead told me that I was right – I should just have somebody do it for me, haha.  I don’t care though, I am doing this!Grilled Garlic & Red Pepper Potatoes Pin

Since I hadn’t been shopping in weeks, I decided it was time for us to stock up on lots of goodies.  Maggie is a bit picky, but she LOVES pork usually.  I saw a selection of Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork that sounded pretty tasty so I picked up a Smithfield Garlic & Herb Loin Filet.  I mean, seriously – you had me at garlic. I was looking for the perfect grilling food and I think I found it.   I always want a little something to go along with my meat though and I had the perfect grilling potato recipe in mind.  Grilled red pepper and garlic potatoes.  I left the store feeling I had nailed this not going inside to make dinner thing!IN StoreSmithfield Marinated Garlic & Herb Pork Loin Filet

So, the other day while the kids were playing outside, I didn’t have to cut out play time short.  We could sit outside with our friends, playing and having fun and smell the amazing scent of dinner cooking.  Watching me get the charcoal grill started was probably entertaining { okay, maybe not getting it started, but keeping it from dying out} but once I got it, there was no stopping me.  I sat outside while the coals got white hot and played tennis and softball with the kids.  When it was time, I threw the Smithfield Garlic & Herb on the grill, put the cover back onl and went back to playing for awhile.
