In these weeks of rehearsal, I have learned that sometimes, the best recipe ideas don't work out. Some of the simplest recipes are the best. You can't always avoid takeout or frozen burritos. Occasionally, I can throw things to make a gourmet meal.
The chicken broccoli casserole fiasco definitely was bad, and a waste of meat and cheese. And the pork roast created this week, was delicious! I found the roast on sale, and it came with a free bag of produce. I wasn't sure how to prep it. I had a can of applesauce I'd accidentally purchased a month or so ago. So, after reviewing different recipes, I decided I could create something tasty with my ingredients, rather than what the recipes called for.
Apple Mustard Pork
1 small onion quartered
3 large carrots cut into 2 inch sections
stone ground mustard
1 tsp sage
I put the meat and veggies into the crockpot. I smeared mustard all over the top of the pork, and then put the applesauce right on top. I sprinkled the sage over everything. Cook on low heat for 8 hours, and enjoy!
