Tonight’s dinner started with a baguette.  I found the perfect baguette this morning and knew that whatever it was, a baguette had to go along with it.

In no time, I thought pork tenderloin.  With sauteed onions and pears.  And a rice medley.  And asparagus.

So I forgot to buy pears.  I got home and decided to marinate the pork in a balsamic vinaigrette and grill it.  I still had a bit of Happy Hal’s Balsamic Vinaigrette (it was a private bottling not available to the general public) and it worked perfect.  I cut the tenderloin into six chunks and marinated it for about an hour before grilling.

The rice medley became am Israeli couscous medley and the asparagus got a lemon mayonnaise topping.

Lemon Mayonnaise… Mayo, lemon zest and lemon juice.  How simple is that?!?  Pretty simple.

Dinner was ready in no time.

So it’s getting towards the end of March and I’m starting to crave salads.  Unfortunately, Mother Nature is not cooperating with my taste-buds… A dusting of snow this morning and some pretty cold weather have me wanting greens but thinking soup.

I’m done with winter this year.
