I’m not the only cook in this house.
My husband actually cooks quite a bit as well, and he is most definitely the grill master here.
He’s been hard at work this summer creating an outdoor kitchen in our pool area. I admit to being skeptical about the project. It entails a built in grill, refrigerator and sink, as well as pavers for the patio flooring which border the stamped concrete that surrounds our pool. The stamped concrete has rounded edges, so this is no easy task. Each paver touching the edge of the stamped concrete has to be cut to match up exactly. Here’s a sneak peak of the project…I’ll be sharing more when it’s completely finished.
CELEBRATING EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE AND 100 YEARS WITH NEW ENGLAND COFFEE
When my husband decides to do something, he’s “all in.”
He’s volunteered for several boards over the years within our community. He’s currently the President of the board of our community Culinary School, and he spent many years on our town soccer board.
I met him in college…we ran cross country and track together. His determination and work ethic was second to none. He still runs and competes in Masters races, but his focus now is actually coaching. This year he coached several girls at our high school to conference and state championships and four girls qualified for Nationals as well.
I tell you this because I consider him to be extraordinary, not simply because I fell in love with him so many years ago, or because he is the father of my children, but because he lives his life in an extraordinary fashion and I want to celebrate that.
Today we’re celebrating something else as well though!
Since 1916, New England Coffee Shop has been serving great coffee to extraordinary people…dedicated folks who who work hard every day to support their families, communities, and workplaces.
I’m raising my coffee cup to these local heroes, alongside of New England Coffee. You can too, by visiting New England Coffee’s extraordinary people gallery, and uploading and sharing a photo of an extraordinary person in your life!
A small company with 100 years of roasting expertise, New England Coffee takes pride in fresh and consistently balanced flavor in every cup. They offer a variety of blends and flavors that can be found on their newly redesigned website, as well as at many grocery stores.
In celebration of 100 years, New England Coffee has created a special blend of coffee called Centennial Reserve, made from 100% Arabica coffee beans from Kenya and Ethiopia. It delivers rich body and bold smooth flavor in every cup!
GRILLED PORK TENDERLOINS WITH COFFEE CHILI RUB
I often like to have a cup of coffee mid afternoon as a pick-me-up. Sometimes it helps me to kick start my afternoon when I’m busy; other times it’s an enjoyable treat as I get dinner started. Coffee is quite versatile…I love the flavor in everything from desserts to main dishes.
Today I have a real treat for you!
I combined New England Coffee Centennial Reserve with chili powder, brown sugar, onion and garlic powder, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper to create a fabulous dry rub for these grilled pork tenderloins.
The rub creates a delicious “crust” that locks in the flavor of meat during grilling, keeping it tender and juicy.
