I think I have all of your secrets here for a perfect late summer/early fall evening!

We’re talking food, wine, and good friends – what could be better than that? Lately, I love the pace of our weekends. True, sometimes they’re too fast for my liking with writing events and photo shoots, but there’s alway a time of day in which I do relax. With the craze of back to school and work, we need to take this time to slow down. Cassidy works in the garden sometimes while I edit photos, from morning until night. The kids have play dates or grandparents days or they run around and play/ignore us/help where need be. They most love helping to harvest our garden crops. This year was a good one!

We got berries and broccoli and green beans and lettuce and kale and swiss chard and potatoes. Tiny potatoes!

This weekend was no exception. I had a few friends over on Sunday afternoon and a few more on Sunday night and we were proud to be able to serve them celery from our own garden, bacon-wrapped potatoes, and wine. I LOVE sharing small bites and wine. It reminds me of my northern California days, but this season is so gorgeous around here – no matter how transitional – that I don’t even get too homesick for the west coast. It’s nice to be with loved ones and eating food from our own garden! Speaking of which, tiny potatoes, bacon, and a brown sugar glaze. Awesome, right? I’ll show you how HERE:

Bacon-Wrapped Potatoes With Brown Sugar Glaze

Bacon-Wrapped Potatoes With Brown Sugar Glaze

  • Enjoy!

You can’t get more farm to table than that. Or more like yard-to-table. Of course, wine pairings are super important. That’s why I love The Dreaming Tree wines. Their story is one of artistry and collaboration, and is inspired by the desire to make high quality California wines that are also accessible to wine lovers everywhere. The Dreaming Tree is passionate about winemaking, first and foremost, but also has a social conscience in their commitment to protecting and restoring tree and forestry areas around the country, and the globe. The wine is for food and fun, so I pair it with my favorite small bites.

The Dreaming Tree wines are high quality, delicious and affordable – plus PERFECT to be enjoyed in small group occasions and settings. I love that the brand has a social conscience – that is demonstrated by their commitment to sustainable winemaking practices, and how they donated over $1M to environmental programs that protect tree and forestry programs.

This is wine you can feel good about serving to your loved ones.

And don’t forget to enjoy my awesome bacon-wrapped potatoes with brown sugar glaze. It’s a simple recipe that doesn’t use a lot of ingredients and doesn’t require too much prep, but can be enjoyed thoroughly with your friends and family.

You can find The Dreaming Tree wines at your local grocery, drug or supercenter stores. Just go to their website and locate their wines with this handy store locater HERE. I’d love to hear which one you’d pair with bacon-wrapped potatoes!

30 Minute Meal: Bacon-Wrapped Pork

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.
