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.

Bones

Yesterday.  I had a lot going on at work, and wore the wrong shoes.  So last night, my body hurt.  One of the things to help me with my aches has been an Epsom Salt bath.  I also use a bath bomb, one that is scented with Lavender to help relax me.  Well, and a glass of wine.  With my bones and Lupus, taking time to recoup is important.  Understanding that my body needs to have a bit of help in healing.

What do you do to help you relax?  What do you do to help you with your daily routine?

Blessings.
