A few days ago we had guests for lunch – friends Catherine, Jack and Leah. Brad joined us as well. As Leah lives in Istanbul and was flying home soon, I wanted to be sure to include pork in the menu. Pork is not readily available in a Muslim community. I decided on a chilled carrot and ginger soup, a big green salad (with bacon) dressed with a creamy citrus dressing, topped with slices of grilled pork tenderloin. For dessert I baked a lemon loaf cake and served it with blueberries. Since I’m still just getting the hang of blogging, it didn’t occur to me to take any pictures until lunch was all done. Trust me when I tell you it looked good. Here’s the recipe list:
