Grilled Pork Loin, Asparagus, and Smashed Garlic Potatoes

On Wednesday night I prepared a pork loin for Nick to grill up while Emmy and I were on our run.  It was mighty tasty.  I was inspired by Giada De Laurentiis' Honey-Mustard Pork Roast with Bacon.  I didn't have many of her ingredients so I was winging it.

Honey-Mustard Pork Loin 
1/2 c yellow mustard
1/4 honey
2 tbsp horse radish 
2 tbsp garlic powder
2 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp Kosher salt
2 tbsp black pepper 
Mix mustard, honey, and horse radish together in a bag.  Marinate pork loin in mixture for 1-2 hours or overnight.  When ready to grill, rub on dry mixture of garlic and onion powder, salt, and pepper.  Grill over medium heat until meat is firm to the touch.



I made the gravy from the pork drippings.

Four roasted heads of garlic for our mashed potatoes.  We smelled lovely.
