Leaves on the back patio and a chill in the air, this recipe is the best way to say farewell to autumn. We’re closing in on winter and this might be your last opportunity to use the back porch and enjoy the great outdoors while you eat. Our Herbed Loin of Pork is tender, sweet and a perfectly juicy. After dinner and the clean-up, grab your glasses of wine and make your way to the outdoor fire place. Cap off the night cuddled under blankets, warm from the fire and full from the delicious pork loin.
