Thursday Recipe

For something a little different I thought I’d post a recipe. Its actually good for at least two meals depending on the size of the roast and how many people you’re feeding.

Fresh pork roast, I usually buy a roast that’s about 2 to 2 1/2 pounds. I spear it several times with a fork, then I combine the following:

2 tablespoons cornstarch

2 teaspoons cinnamon

2 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar (pack it good)

1 cup applesauce and 2 apples peeled, cored and sliced chunky

Pour the mixture over the roast in a baking dish and cover. Bake for 30-40 minutes, if you live below 3500 feet altitude uncover the roast and continue baking until done to your liking. If you live above 3500 feet, I suggest leaving the roast covered until done to your liking otherwise the sauce around the roast may caramelize.  Serve with your favorite side dishes.

Now for the left overs. Take the remaining pork cut in thick slices or medium sized chunks. Pour in one can of chicken broth and one can of water. Let the roast cook at a rough simmer (slow easy boil) until the liquid is almost cooked away and the meat is falling apart. Then add your favorite barbeque sauce and you have home made pulled pork sandwiches.

Hungry Girl

No, I’m not hungry, although it is morning here. Hungry Girl is a website dedicated to healthy, low fat, low calorie eating. The concept was started by Lisa Lillien, who busts many myths about diet food and provides recipes which help bulk up the meal without bulking up on fat and calories. I first came across her while watching an episode of Dr Oz. On that particular show she showed how to make mac and cheese with low fat, low calorie ingredients and then add cauliflower which of course adds vitamins, minerals and fiber without adding unwanted fat or calories. Plus, it fills you up faster and keeps you full longer.  Truthfully, I haven’t tried this yet, mostly because I’m not a fan of mac and cheese (yeh, I know, sorry) and I prefer my cauliflower raw. However, from her news letter, I’ve found some amazing salad ideas, such as adding fruit, nuts, tuna, chicken, and a host of other ingredients. While she uses many foods in her cooked dishes which I prefer raw, still her recipes sound practical, nutritious and easy. I’ve signed up for her newsletter and will continue to watch for new recipe ideas from her. Who knows, she may convince me to try a few new foods or at least old foods prepared in new ways.

Here’s the link for her website: Hungry Girl    If any of you are already familiar with her, please leave me a comment to let me know your opinion. If you’re not familiar with her, I invite you to check her out. I”ll be interested to know how some of her recipes taste if anyone tries them.
