Bacon wrapped around pork loin? Well, why didn’t you say so??

And there’s really not much to say other than “YUM.” I LOVE Smithfield®. We buy their ribs, their bacon, their lunch meat, their sausage, and their Marinated Fresh Pork. This is the BEST time of year for it. I think probably all times of year are perfect for Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork, but there’s something about a delicious and easy meal you can whip up in 30 minutes. My recipe is SO easy to prep and make, and it smells and tastes amazing.

Cassidy was working with a builder on our chicken coop (more like chicken palace) yesterday, and Scarlet had a friend over. It was cool out with a spring breeze that almost felt like autumn, and I knew I had to make something that would perk up the chicken coop builder, and get the attention of three busy kids. The “What’s For Dinner?” question is a big and annoying one in my household, and I’ll do whatever it takes to avoid it. How to avoid it?

Action. Sweet, sweet action. (or should I say savory action?)

First, I go to Walmart. I go there a few times a week anyway, and ours has an exquisite collection of Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork to inspire my favorite Bacon-Wrapped Pork recipe. For my busy family of four, Smithfield® creates easy weeknight and weekend meals, and delicious lunch leftovers (more on that later). Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork is so flavorful, and comes in a variety of options. My recipe can be cooked in 30 minutes and it does not require a lot of ingredients! First, I go into the pork section of the deli to find Smithfield Roasted Garlic and Cracked Black Pepper Tenderloin. You can use any other flavor – I happen to love this one.

As I have mentioned, Smithfield® offers a variety of marinated fresh pork options to create easy weeknight and weekend meals. And wait until you see my leftover lunch “recipe” too. It’s REALLY good! These “Real Flavor, Real Fast” options are beneficial to my family. When I saw we’re busy, we are BUSY. Cassidy and I both work around the clock, and we also are currently building a strawberry garden, a chicken flock, and a chicken coop! Add the dog, the cat, and household errands, and dinner should be easy. Whether you like Tenderloins, Loin Filets, or Roasts, and whether you like them grilled, roasted, sautéed, and more – there’s an option. Here’s one of mine:

Speaking of which, wait until you try the leftovers the next day! Here’s my tip. Also, buy soft sandwich rolls. Then use a slice of bacon-wrapped pork loin as the meat of your sandwich. They cut into perfect tender circles. See?

Add lettuce and tomatoes (and condiments) and then you have a PBLT. It’s like a BLT but with pork added as well.

The Only Bacon-Wrapped Quail Recipe You’ll Ever Need

Everything is better wrapped in bacon, right? Think quail is a hard #recipe to master? Not so! This recipe is easy and perfect for guests #MyNutrishPeak #ad

What else can I say except quail? Quail. I did not see it coming.

Who knew that buying quail meat would be one of the most colorful experiences of my life? We were having guests over for a special occasion – after they had been through an ordeal – and we wanted to make something comforting yet fancy. Familiar yet exotic. So then I wound up at one of the most interesting meat shops in the world with a half dozen employees helping me and giving me cooking advice. It was awesome. And how did it turn out in the long run? Or rather, short run. Let me show you.

Quail cooks quickly because it’s so small, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t require some love. I sprinkled mine with salt and pepper, and brushed a garlic butter on it before cooking. Through trial and error and a lot of help from my various friends from the best meat store ever, I learned the best cooking procedures. What made it fantastic was the high flavor and the ease of cooking. I honestly impressed myself, and I swear I don’t impress myself that often! When I do, I can admit it though!

I paired my quail with Cassidy’s beet and pear salad (so good) and wild rice.

So what do you think? Are you ready to try it out?

Now, let’s talk about Athena.

Did you know that my active girl is a quail fan too?

It’s true! She eats the NEW Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® PEAK Northern Woodlands Recipe™ with Turkey, Duck & Quail. I call her my daytime life partner because she sleeps near me while I work, and then when we’re both really lucky, we take a daily hike. I chase the wind and a good song on my headphones, and she’s a fierce chaser of squirrels – but she never catches them!

She’s part Husky, (we think) part Basenji, and all-around adventurer. She’s afraid of our cat, but goes to NJ, CT, and Cape Cod with us like it’s nothing. I take her feeding as seriously as I take my own, which is how I discovered NEW Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® PEAK Northern Woodlands Recipe™ with Turkey, Duck & Quail while shopping at Target for my weekly family trip.

Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® PEAK Northern Woodlands Recipe™ with Turkey, Duck & Quail and Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® PEAK Open Range Recipe™ with Beef, Venison & Lamb are both protein-rich, grain-free recipes to satisfy Athena’s cravings. Real U.S. farm-raised turkey is always the #1 ingredient in the Northern Woodlands Recipe, and real U.S. farm-raised beef is always the #1 ingredient in the Open Range Recipe. 30% high-quality protein and 0% grains, glutens or filler. Made for dogs of all sizes!

Nutrish was created in 2007, with help from pet nutrition experts. Rachael Ray created Nutrish’s super-premium food and treats for dogs inspired by recipes from her own kitchen. In 2014, they were proud to grow into the world of cat food as well.

A portion of proceeds go to Rachael’s Rescue® – created to help shelter pets in need. To date, she has donated over $17.5M to pet charities and other organizations that do good for animals. The funds are used for food, medical supplies, treatments, and more – to help animals in need. Together we can make a difference for dogs – our best friends and hiking partners!

And did I mention that Nutrish PEAK safely USA cooked with the world’s best ingredients? If you’re making the switch to Nutrish, gradually introduce the food by incorporating it into your current dog food over the course of 7-10 days. And then slowly replace your dog’s current food with PEAK until it’s completely switched over. Finally, the switch is made!

My girl:

Now tell me – if you could cook with turkey, duck or quail, which would you choose and why?
