Happy Labor Day :O)

I'm sure most of you are grilling today - well, here in Tomball and most of South Texas we've been having torrential downpours off and on all day. Instead of grilling, we are having a fish fry. In the spirit of this holiday weekend, I thought I'd post this photo from a while back... Enjoy!!!

Margarita Pork Tenderloin

3 garlic cloves, minced
1 green onion, minced
1/2 jalapeño pepper, minced
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 1/2 tablespoons tequila
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
2 (1-pound) pork tenderloins

Combine first 10 ingredients in a shallow dish or large zip-top plastic freezer bag. Cut pork diagonally into 1-inch-thick slices, and add to tequila mixture. Cover or seal, and chill 1 hour, turning occasionally. Remove pork from marinade, discarding marinade. Grill, covered with grill lid, over high heat (400° to 500°) 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until done.

* We served this with Tex-Mex Summer Squash Casserole, that I'll try to post tomorrow.

We've gotten a ton of rain over the last 3 days and so many places have been flooded! Thankfully, it's moved north.

Hope you had a good Labor Day despit the rain.
