Summer really is winding down, hot as it may be. In Arizona, kids start back to school so early. Like, in the next few weeks, early. I remember heading back to school after Labor Day as a kid in Ohio, which seemed about right.
Regardless of when school starts where you live, there’s not much doubt that the season is about to change. That means it’s time to start thinking about weeknight meals that don’t take a long time to prepare. Blackberry-Jalapeño Glazed Pork Loin is something you need to add to your must-try list!
I used a Smithfield All Natural Boneless Loin Filet for this recipe, and of course some of the season’s fruit because I want to enjoy it while I can! The blackberries add a wonderful sweetness to the dish, and the jalapeño adds the right amount of heat — it’s a wonderful combo.
