Pork Roast

I had a rump Pork Roast in the freezer that needed to be cooked.  So, I decided to throw some things together and cook it.

Season Salt and Cavender’s Greek seasoning…are my go to spices for pork.Searing the pork roast on all sides with a liberal seasoning is important.  “Brown food is good food.”  Anne BurrelAdded one onion, coarsely chopped and six cloves of garlic.Then added a small bottle of Apple Juice, and about two cups of reduced sodium Chicken Broth.  Bring to a simmer, and cook for approximately 20 minutes.  Before placing in the oven, I added five small bay leaves.Braised in the oven for about three hours at 325 degrees.It turned out with a nice, sweet tang from the juice.  It was super moist, and really had depth of flavor with the garlic and bay leaves.

Served with roasted baby potatoes, and broccoli.

Blessings.

Besties

I spent time with my besties this past weekend. It has become an annual event as we have been attending Market Days in Tallahassee together now for five years.  That seems crazy to me.

This year there was rain, a ton of rain, but we were able to be inside for the major downpours.

It was still a lot of fun, and although none of us was shopping for anything specific, we all found lots of wonderful things.

We went to Hobby Lobby as well (once the shopping was done at Market Days). That place was nuts!! Apparently it was half price on all Christmas…well…Nuts!  We got supplies to make the Christmas Cork Trees.  I am so excited about these trees!  That will be in another post.

We had a ball together, and was able to make the Christmas Soldiers.  But it is the time spent just being able to chat, and encourage one another that is so special to me.  These girl friends are like family to me.  I so cherish our time together.

Who do you choose to be with?  What would you change about the time spent if you could?

Blessings.
