Sweet and Sour Pork

We started school officially this Tuesday. Boy, it was hard to get back in the groove of things. Why can’t it be summer all year long? :) Between prep time for lessons, actual school time, extra-curricular activities, working three days a week (including both Saturday and Sunday), and life in general, there isn’t a lot […]

Our Easter Dinner

In the evening – it was grilling time! We wonder why we don’t do this often. :) Note: Recipe for grilled pork can be found in a previously published post – Macaroni Salad and Grilled Soy Sauce Pork. For a bolder flavor, I divided 5 pounds of pork tenderloin into two bags and marinated each bag of meat with the […]

Chinese Roast Pork (Sio Bak)
