Dinner Last Night

Since none of the usual group could make our Monday night dinner last night, I invited a bunch of other friends instead.‚  We made pork loins on the grill with apple & bacon on top, roasted asparagus and grilled fingerling potatoes.‚  Good stuff and it was fun to share some culinary joys with other people.
