Sunday - blackberry muffins, fruit salad /  jalapeno & bacon wrapped roasted pork tenderloin, black bean & corn salad, zucchini & mushrooms, coconut cake

Here's a recipe from this week's meal plan:

Zucchini & Mushrooms

3 Tbsp. olive oil
4 med. zucchini, cut crosswise
1/2 lb. small white mushrooms, quartered
2 med. garlic cloves, minced
1 small fresh jalapeno, seeded, veins removed and finely chopped
salt & pepper to taste

In a large skillet heat 2 tsp. olive oil over medium-high heat.  add zucchini and cook, stirring, until crisp-tender.  Season with salt & pepper; set aside in a bowl.  In the same skillet add the remaining oil, mushrooms and garlic.  Cover and cook stirring frequently, until the mushrooms release their juices, 3-4 min.  Return the zucchini to the pan.  Add the jalapeno.  Cook, stirring until heated through, 1-2 min.
Serves 4
