Grilled Pork Loin in Tequila Mustard Marinade

Last week my kitchen took root where the family gathered and the cooking began. This time I made a pork loin roast. I've been making this marinade for chicken and decided to try it out on the pork. I'm glad to report that the family was happy with it.  You see, I write a cooking blog, but my whole family knows its way around a kitchen. Talk about pressure! My brother and I enjoyed some friendly competition (he does make a mean rack of smoked pork ribs) while our sister was out of commission with a sprained wrist. 

As is usually the case, we had more than enough food so we didn't have to cook every day. In fact, the pork roast leftovers are a perfect addition to a main dish salad on these hot summer days.  We also grilled vegetables and fruit while the grill was hot.

Oh, I do love dining al fresco!
