Charcoal-Grilled Pork Loin with Apple-Cranberry Filling

I’m addicted to paper. Not sure what it is about it but I think I may be the sole reason book stores will never go out of business. I am probably to blame for 32% of the rain forest being depleted and global warming. Trust me I feel horrible about it, but I can’t pass up a new book or magazine.

Just the other night, a quick trip to the buy-in-bulk shoppe resulted in 4 new magazines and a new cookbook. Shameful.

That all being said, these weren’t gossip magazines or tabloid trash (though the ones about Wolf-boy and alien abductions are hard to pass up). These were the new magazines Cook’s Illustrated/America’s Test Kitchen puts out from time to time. The ones you can’t subscribe to, are only out on the shelves for like a minute, and have a boat load of awesome new quality recipes to try in them. Yeah, I can not walk past one of those without buying it.

The cookbook was one I am going to enjoy too. A new paper back from ATK packed with recipes for the slow cooker. Autumns coming and my readers need me to test out some new crock pot recipes, right? (Go with me on this one guys or I might get dirty looks from Handsome when the pile gets tossed into the cart).

Don’t question my kitchen twine, cuz it’s not. I have no idea what it was, but it served its purpose well.

On another buy in bulk note, we bought new Tupperware because all my seems to have shrank or been absconded with. Do you ever have to throw away the the Tupperware drawer and start new – because that’s what we just did. I won’t even tell you how Handsome had me label them so that we’d be sure to get back any we may lend out this time…

    Okay first off…there is a tupperware monster. It eats only the lids. I hate it and I want to spear it in the head.

    Secondly, we most definitely need slow cooker recipes. As many as you can manage. My family’s life depends on it.

    And lastly, holy hell that pork loin is amazing. I reckon I could eat my weight in meat if it was stuffed with this apple filling. Buzzed

    Wow!! This looks fantastic! I don’t often cook pork loin but I might just have to now, this has me drooling…sounds amazing!

    That crispy pork picture is making me hungry and the filling is a great choice of flavor. Yum!
    I am trying to cut back on buying books and magazines, but it is very difficult!

    Apple and pork is a winning combination. I think they compliment each other very nicely. Your pork loin looks amazing!

    That pork loin looks fabulous! I sometimes do a roasted pork with a sage-apple-chestnut filling in the fall, but now I have a more summer-appropriate recipe I can try… especially since grilling means I won’t heat up the house with the oven, and I get all those gorgeous crispy bits on the outside. Must make this soon. Yippee!

    Addicted to paper? That’s a new one! I think you should apply for that TLC show :) Sad that you don’t like tabloid trash mags, I love them…can’t get enough of them…and I can’t get enough of this pork! This looks like a five star meal. You GRILL (grill, not go) girl

    As much as I read on line I love magazines so much more. I know people love there gadgets but there is nothing like having a magazine to flip through. I am leaning towards ebooks for novels but there is nothing like a beautifully illustrated cookbook

    Something about pork and apples just makes sense! I am not a fan of fruit in my savory dishes but I make an exception when it comes to apples and pork. This sounds lovely and my hubby would love an excuse to grill a pork tenderloin!

    Lovin the Pork Loin Kita! I know how you feel about magazines and cookbooks. I try to convince myself that I’m going to cook from the piles of books and magazines that I have before I buy anymore. Yeah right, who am I trying to fool!

    Delicious! I love greeting cards and stationary! I have 3 file drawers FULL of the “perfect” card or note….

    The pork loin looks so juicy and tasty!

    This pork loin sounds so savory. And of course your pictures are beautiful, as always. I keep having nightmares that so many people will be converting to digital books, and then all the bookstores will close, and then I’ll have to switch to digital books. Hopefully you are right and that day will never come.
