If you have kids you know the end of summer is a major downshift. School and routines are here to stay and my empty refrigerator can no longer remain empty. I try (operative word) to have a decent dinner for my family most nights but with sports and activities it’s always a challenge.
Here is one of my go-to dinners everyone enjoys. Pork Tenderloin with Prosciutto. I love the flavors of sage and sun-dried tomatoes with sweet tasting cured prosciutto. You can serve this with Penne pasta or a loaf of bread for dipping. Peas are a perfect side dish. It’s relatively easy to make and can be served family style.
There you are…only 179 more dinners to go.
