June 21st - June 27th

It was a great week having Madison home!  We made a bunch of stuff while she was here and took lots of pictures to share on the blog. I can't wait to get all those posts done and published!

She's off to work in Canada until the end of July!
Publix has summer vegetables on a really great sale this week along with Tilapia, Ground Round and Shrimp!  Have a great week!

Saturday - Guacamole Cilantro Lime Cheeseburger with chips and fresh salsa (add fresh garlic to this salsa recipe and I am only using 3 serranos - that is plenty hot. Don't forget to remove the seeds before chopping!) For the guacamole I use 2 avocados, garlic and salt to taste, and 1/2 a lime. I mash it all together and put in the fridge for several hours or overnight. 
Sunday - Garlicky Pork Stir-Fry (see recipe below - it's another one of our faves!)
Monday - California Grilled Vege Sandwich and fries
Tuesday - Grilled Shrimp Tacos
Wednesday - Leftover night

Garlicky Pork Stir-Fry
2 lb pork loin cut into bite sized cubes
1/8 cup white wine vinegar
1/3 cup soy sauce
1.5 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon minced garlic
crushed red pepper flakes to taste - (I use about 1/8-1/4 teaspoon)
1 large onion cut into 2 inch pieces
1 large green bell pepper cut into 2 inch pieces
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup cornstarch

Place cubed pork into a ziploc bag with 1/2 cup cornstarch and shake to coat. Heat oil in a large skillet over mid-high heat. Add pork and stir-fry and brown on all sides (about 5 minutes) then add garlic and veges and stir fry until pork is cooked through - about 5 more minutes. Whisk together soy sauce, vinegar, pepper flakes and sugar and add to skillet. Stir-fry until veges are tender to your liking. (Pork should be cooked through at this time, but always check to make sure it is just slightly pink in the center of thickest piece). Serve over rice or noodles.
