The end of summer blues

We are coming to the end of summer ~
at least to the end of evenings IN the pool ! ~It'll turn your toes BLUE.
That water takes on a chill this time of year . . . and I am done.
We can still enjoy evenings by the pool.
I love to use the grill for everything, I don't even have to turn my oven on. This is a pork tenderloin that is perfect for the grill (or in the oven)

Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Rosemary
pork tenderloin, about 2 pounds
1 handful fresh rosemary,
2 Tbs olive oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed
generous salt and pepper

Use a disposable cooking tin and heat the grill to High heat.  
Strip the leaves off of fresh rosemary.  In a small bowl, combine rosemary, minced garlic and olive oil. Rub over all sides and center of pork tenderloin, tie together with kitchen twine.
Place pork on the hot tin. Layer the remaining rosemary and garlic on top of the roast.
Return to the grill and cook on high for 15- 20 minutes (about 150° to 155° internal temp).
Remove and let stand 10 minutes, then slice.

I always use my battery meat thermometer . . . the most important tool in my kitchen. The meat is crusty on the outside, but pink and juicy on the inside.
Perfect! I serve it simply, with my Full Moon Slaw and rolls.
Just what an evening by the pool deserves . . .  Little effort and great flavor.

Don't forget to check in at Smiling Sally for more blues and Boogie Board Cottage for her Masterpiece Monday.
Y'all enjoy ~

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
