Meal Planner

Announcing a new feature called Meal Planner! Sometimes I am at a loss for what to make for dinner. When I create a meal plan for a week or more I find dinners come together a lot easier. The Meal Planner will be found early in a post and listed in bold print. It will usually include a main dish and two sides.

When creating a grocery list you may find glancing at the Meal Planner tab useful. There is only one meal suggestion there so far, but I will be adding to it so check back. Feel free to comment about this new feature and let me know what you think.  After all,  it wouldn't be Gluten Free and You without YOU!

Southwestern Grilled Pork Tenderloin

How wonderful is it when at noon you have no idea what to make for dinner and somehow a frozen solid pork tenderloin miraculously turns into a fantastic meal with a click of the mouse? After a brief search online that is exactly what happened to me earlier this week. I found this recipe in a Google search.  I hope you enjoy it.

Meal Planner: Southwestern Grilled Tenderloin, Corn Fritters, and Coleslaw

1 Tbsp. Chili Powder
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. Freshly Ground Pepper
1 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Onion Powder
1/8 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/8 tsp. Cumin
1/8 tsp. Cayenne
1 (1.25lb.) Pork Tenderloin (trimmed)
1 tsp. Canola Oil
To make the rub, combine all ingredients 
except the pork and oil in a small bowl.  
Place the pork and oil in a zip-close plastic 
bag and add the rub.  Squeeze out the air and 
seal the bag; turn to coat the meat.  
Refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours.

Meanwhile, spray the grill rack with non-stick spray; 
preheat the grill to high or prepare a hot fire.

Place the pork on the grill rack.  Grill turning, 
until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the 
center registers 160°F for medium, (18-22 minutes).  
Transfer the pork to a platter and cover loosely 
with foil; let stand approx. 10 minutes.  Cut into 
12 slices.  (Serving = about 3 slices)

Gluten Free and You Fun Facts

While checking the stats available through Blogger I thought it was "post-worthy" to mention that Gluten Free and You, the blogspot has had over 2,000 pageviews in its short lifetime. Currently Quinoa Egg Salad is the most viewed post. It was also the first post to top 100 views. I believe that is partly thanks to participating in  The Gluten Free Homemaker's  Gluten Free Wednesdays. I hope you enjoy these fun facts as much as I enjoy this blogspot!!! Happy reading!
