The internet is a wonderful thing, it allows me to let you in on the best of Champagne Living, but spares you the orange sauce running down my chin from this incredible Orange Glazed Pork Roast that I just devoured. Since beginning this wonderful “Good and good for you” pork project, making a new cut and a new recipe each week I’ve gotten more creative with my menus and have fed my family heart healthier meals.
This week I headed to Publix for a bone-in pork loin roast. I then checked out the Pork be Inspired website to find a recipe. My first inclination was to make a Garlic-Herb Roast Pork, but that was too safe….besides I had done something similar with my pork tenderloin on week 1.
This week Bone-in Pork Loin Roast is just $3.39 per pound at Publix, making it deliciously affordable to get a lean meal on the table!
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner and February being national heart health month, the National Pork Board has adopted Heart-y and Healthy Valentines recipes, that are good for you and delish!
Here’s what we had for dinner tonight.
