Sun-dried Tomato & Pork with Balsamic Reduction Sauce

Dinner last night was fantastic!  A friend posted a link to and I got lost in looking at all the beautiful, new Paleo recipes.  I Dream of Protein's site has some great looking meals.  Last night we tried this Sun-Dried Tomato & Pork with Balsamic Reduction Sauce and it did not disappoint.

The pork and sauce were great.  I made her Macadamia Basil Pesto to go with it, which was delicious on its own, and great combined with the pork and glaze.  A little spring mix, some pear slices, and broiled zucchini rounds on the side - it was lovely and so tasty.  For the zucchini, I laid them out on a foil covered cookie sheet, dotted with Kerrygold butter, added salt and pepper, and broiled on low for about 6 minutes.

Excellent meal!  We loved it.

Meals: 21-23 May

I've only planned this week through Thursday since we start our CSA pickup that day (two weeks early!!).  My thought is that I'll look at our CSA box and plan Friday through the following Thursday so that I can be sure to incorporate all of our fresh-from-the-farm produce.  The farm is doing home deliveries today and they posted some pictures - beautiful, lush produce in beautiful, hand-crafted cedar crates.  I noticed kale, turnips, strawberries, salad mix; I'm so excited!

Sun-dried Tomato and Pork with Balsamic Reduction Sauce from I Dream of Protein - I already made the macadamia pesto to go with it and it's delicious.  Sophie and I had it on eggs for lunch.  I think I'll serve it on a bed of lettuce and maybe saute some zuchinni rounds to go with it.
