I have had this recipe for a long time. I am not sure where I got it from. It is Dave’s favorite marinade for pork on the grill.
1/3 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 2 tbsp. olive oil, 2 tsp. minced garlic, 2 tbsp. minced fresh rosemary. Combine all ingredients and pour over meat. Let sit overnight or at least a few hours. As in all marinades, overnight is better but not always possible. I have made this plenty using dried rosemary and even not using any rosemary at all. It is still delicious either way.

Here are some pictures of the fun we had last Thursday on Jess and Daniel’s visit. In the first picture, we are outside playing, the next picture is coltsfoot (one of our earliest wildflowers to bloom). We took a ride around the farm in “MawMaw’s bumpy truck”. On the tractor road, we spotted these kildeer walking on the road. Jess took the picture from the truck. I think they might have a nest somewhere close as they did not want to leave thier area. The last picture is Daniel, thinking. I am not exactly sure but it looks like he is trying to figure out how to get the sawdust in his wheelbarrow. We had lots of fun!
Tonight’s menu is pork tenderloin on the grill, french fries and corn on the cob-frozen from our garden last year. I gathered some rhubarb today and plan to make rhubarb dumplings for dessert.
Rosemary Marinade Recipe
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp minced garlic
2-4 tsp dried rosemary-crushed
Combine all ingredients. Pour over beef, chicken, or pork. (I use this on all types of meat). School is finished for today. Time to enjoy the sun. We got our bikes out today, pumped up the tires,and oiled the chains. We rode for a little while. Long enough for me to discover how out of shape I am. It will take a while before I can keep up with the girls. I hope to work some on the garden this evening. We have some clean up to do before Hubby can plow. I hope you all enjoy your evening. Take care and God bless.
