My local grocery store is Publix.  Every day, Publix puts on cooking demonstrations and tastings.  If you like what they are cooking, you can grab a recipe card complete with shopping list.  They also have a display case right there where you can grab most of your ingredients.  The recipes are usually tasty, fresh and seasonal.  This week, the featured recipe was Fig and Rosemary Pork.  I already had bacon and figs on hand, plus pork loin and mushrooms were on sale.  Obviously, this dish was selected before I started my new diet, but I have cheated a little and had some for dinner.  It is delicious.  Even Hubby said, “you’re going to blog about this, right?”  So, here I am, sharing the recipe with you.
