Pepper Crusted Pork with Peach Salsa

Two words that come to my mind when I think of summertime cooking are 'refreshing' and 'fruit'. I had found a peach salsa recipe idea that I thought would be great to try some summer evening. I adapted it to suite our needs and I think it would go good with chicken or pork or maybe even fish.

Tonight`s menu was Pepper Crusted Pork with Peach Salsa, Spinach Salad, & 1/2 cup Jello Fat Free Chocolate Pudding with a dollop of Cool Whip.

We had bought a big hunk of pork a couple of weeks ago and before freezing it Millard prepared into a few meals including pepper crusted boneless chops. For tonight's meal all I had to do was thaw the pork, make the salsa and prepare the salad & pudding.

First I prepared my Roasted Red Peppers on the grill. Then I took 2 peaches and peeled and diced them and tossed them in a bowl. They smelled so refreshing!


I then diced the half a cup of both yellow and red peppers.

Diced & added the red onions

Mixed it up, added lime juice, chili powder, pepper & it was done!


Once plated it looked & tasted delicious! We had to cut the peppered crust off the children's pork because it had quite a kick of spice to it. Christian didn't like the peach salsa & Alexander picked through it to eat the peaches only. :) Both myslef and Millard enjoyed it!

Aztec Blend

I was at the Bulk Barn last week and decided to try out one of their rice blends. It is Aztec Blend #1656. It includes colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas, and amaranth. I had no idea what some of those ingredients were but figured anything's worth a try, right? When I got home I looked up colusari rice & amaranth. Colusari rice is a burgundy-colored chewy rice that has a light nutty-popcorn-like flavor and amaranth is actually an herb.

It was very simple to prepare & actually pretty good. The peas were a little crunchy which added nice texture. I was surprised that both kids really liked it.

Banna-Nutella Tortilla Wrap

While standing in the grocery store line last week I was flipping through a cooking magazine and came across this idea.  I thought it was the perfect after school surprise for Christian.

First I spread the nutella on a tortilla.

Then I put a peeled banana on it.

Rolled it up...

...and it was ready to eat.

Christian shared it with his little brother and they both gobbled it up.  A little messy... for Alexander especially, but worth it.

Asian Cabbage Mango Slaw

I saw this recipe and knew that we had to try it!  Actually, this recipe was my inspiration behind having an Asian-inspired BBQ meal.  The idea of mango in my slaw felt very summery to me and it was a great way to have a BBQ side without the calories of our typical mayo-based salads.

It was a pretty simple dish to make.  Below, you'll see everything tossed in the bowl.  FYI, I shredded the cabbage with a knife and the carrot with a box shredder. 

The marinade called for rice vinegar (which I didn't have), but I had just learned that I could sub with white wine vinegar. Mixed it all up and threw in some sesame seeds and it was ready.  I put it in the fridge for a few hours, but I could've just given it 15 minutes to let the flavors marinade a little.
