Grilled Pork Chops and Vegetables

Summer’s here and there’s nothing better than enjoying grilled meats and veggies.  Here’s a quick and easy recipe submitted by Laurel Maccubbin.

4 bone-in pork chops (about 1/2 inch thick each)
1/4 cup Italian Salad Dressing (make sure it is dairy-free)
1 T Dijon Mustard
1 small white onion, cut lengthwise into wedges
2 red peppers, cut lengthwise into wedges
2 zucchini, cut diagonally into 1/4 inch thick slices

Preheat grill to medium heat.  Pierce both sides of pork chops a few times with a fork and place in a shallow dish.  Combine dressing and mustard.  Pour half of the dressing mixture over the pork chops and cover the dish.  Refrigerate 30 minutes to marinate.  Set the remaining dressing mixture aside for later use.  Remove pork chops from the marinade and discard marinade.  Grill the pork chops and vegetables about 8 minutes on each side until
the pork chops are cooked through (at least 160 degrees F) and veggies are crisp, but tender.  *This works best using aluminum foil.  Brush occasionally with the reserved dressing mixture.  Makes 4 servings.

Casting Call for milk and peanut allergy families in California!!!

I got an e-mail from Ian Young regarding a show they are making on allergies.  Because my son is now challenge testing, we are not a good fit, however, if you live in CA and think you may be a good fit, please contact Ian (see e-mail message and contact information below):

Good morning, I found your website and wanted to discuss our show with you.  FARE is teaming up with us to do a show on dairy and peanut allergies.     I would love to see if your family is right for the project and if not, perhaps you know a family who is.  Please contact me at your earliest convenience.  We need to lock down a family for this project in the next couple of days and the stipulations of what we require are specific enough that we lose out on a lot of families.  Looking forward to speaking with you!  The episode will be all about how to make a birthday cake for kids with Dairy and Peanut allergies.
