This week a friend on twitter shared a recipe for pork tenderloin made in the slow cooker. I am a huge fan of my slow cooker. HUGE. It makes our busy weeknights easier to manage. This recipe was just like the title suggests… AH-MAZING! Highly recommend. Lil’ A ate every bite and K gushed at how delish it was.
The pork was tender and full of flavor. Serve with mashed potatoes and veggies for a complete meal.
A few months ago, Nikki suggested I create a Dream Board to help get me back on track. At the time, I was feeling pretty blue and lacking motivation. This idea really appealed to me but I didn’t act on it. It was a difficult year and I just couldn’t see a way out of the sadness I was feeling. Early December I finally found my happy again. I felt hopeful and excited about a few new prospects. All of this has spilled over into this new year and I think this is the perfect time to create my Dream Board.
Here are a few goals for the up coming year:
Try a new recipe each week
Finish redecorating the guest room
Finish Project Basement and my studio space
Start an Etsy store
Walk jog run 500 miles
Participate in the Cap City Half Marathon
Plan and host a Lalaloopsy themed birthday party
Read 100 books
And the BIG one…
Register for the 2014 Disney Half Marathon and save for a family vacation
Oh how I adore Fall. I’ve mentioned it before and I’ll mention it a million more times. This season makes me so happy. A few weeks ago, my in-laws took Lil’ A apple picking and today I used up most of those yummy apples in a dessert.
From past posts, I’m sure you are all extremely aware of my limited (at best) baking skills but I didn’t want the apples to go to waste and the kiddo wasn’t digging the idea of making applesauce. So I hopped over the the Supercook site to see what I could make with my sparse baking supplies.
Enter… Easy Apple Cobbler!
And it was easy! The most work comes in when peeling and chopping the apples but I did this task while watching 666 Park Avenue. The whole house smelled amazing!
And as for the taste? After the first bite K said, “Shit! This is good!” A ringing endorsement if I ever heard one!
