Today is a double-decker post!

For starters 
we have our 

I was looking 
at the 
everybody's favorite 
department store,
and stumbled upon this!
I went aha!
You know what this is perfect for...
Pink Saturday!

Actually, this would be pretty darn cute in my bedroom...

Which brings us to 
the second half of today's post.

Jacob prepared this 
delicious meal
for a his foods class.

He started by preparing his potatoes in tin-foil packets.
He buttered the foil so the potatoes 
would not stick.
He sliced them thin
S & P 'd them
added a pat or two of butter
and garlic powder and onion powder.
He sealed the packets 
and placed them on about a 350 degree grill
for about 30 minutes.

The pork tenderloin chops 
were seasoned with 
S & P, garlic powder
smoked paprika.
He placed them on the grill
in the indirect heat on the top grate
for about 20 minutes.
Or until the meat is cooked to  about 165 degrees.
They turn out so moist and tender!

Needless to say
Jacob received an "A"
on this project,
and if I have to say so myself
it was delicious!

Looks like Jacob is accomplished enough to have dinner on the table for you when you get home from work! Great idea to teach kids to cook - the sooner the better!!! Sally

What a great project. I love it when boys learn to cook!! My son used to be a picky eater, but learning how to cook made him more adventurous with his diet!

You must be very proud of Jacob, and rightly so!!

Happy Pink Saturday!

Oh that sounds good, I'm ready for some grillin..... Loved visiting your blog.

tardevil said...

I feel so blonde. I've never thought about slicing the potatoes & grilling them in foil. We'll have to try that. He looks so young to have cooked a entire meal, but it looks better than some of the ones I make! LOL!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Hi Robyn

Jacob is a great cook and deserves the A! My son enjoys cooking too.

I can't wait till the weather gets warmer and I can grill outside again.

Pretty pink TV! I love Target

Hugs, Pat
