This pork roast recipe has “fall” all over it! Apples and Cinnamon add the perfect flavor!

Apple-cinnamon Pork RoastThis recipe was found on Parenting.com. They have a few, great recipes on this site, that I have tried! They have a great foody section and if you have time you should check it out: Recipes

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 – 3 pound boneless pork-loin roast
  • teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • tablespoon vegetable oil
  • medium sweet onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 1/2 cup apple cider or apple juice
  • Jonagold or McIntosh apples, cored and thinly sliced
  • tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • bag (16 ounces) coleslaw mix

Make It

1.If the roast wont fit in your 4- to 5-quart slow cooker, trim it and save the pieces for stir-fry later in the week. Then sprinkle the roast with thyme, salt, and pepper. In a large skillet, brown meat on all sides in hot oil.

2.Layer the onion on the bottom of your slow cooker. Place roast on top and pour on the apple cider- we prefer cider because it has a bit more fiber. Cover and cook on high for 2 to 2-1/2 hours. Toss apples with lemon juice and cinnamon. Add them and the coleslaw mix to your slow cooker. Cover and heat 10 minutes more.

3.Remove the roast and place it on a platter. Let rest 10 minutes before slicing. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the vegetables and apple slices to the platter. Drizzle any remaining cooking juices over meat and vegetables.

Crockpot Diced Potatoes

This is my new recipe I tried this week (#newyeargoals) 🍽!! Those of us that like potatoes, in our family, loved them! I added sour cream (which I always do with potatoes) and this would also be good with ranch or some bacon bits! But this  was a winner for us and I’ll make again

Ingredients:

  •  About 6 yellow potatoes ( I like yellow because they are a little softer) And this time I had some big, yellow potatoes, so I only used 6, but depends on size of crockpot and who your serving)

  • 4 Tablespoons of butter

  • Seasonings – I used salt, dash of pepper and season salt

  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese

Line your crockpot with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Cut up potatoes to desired size and cut up butter in tablespoons. Add half potatoes, sprinkle with seasonings and some cheese. Add rest of potatoes and sprinkle  with seasonings, butter and cheese. Cook low on 8-10 hours (or high 4-6 hours). the last 10 minutes or so add the rest of the cheese.

One suggestion I would make, is that if you’re home, stir a few times. Ours were a little crispy, not burnt at all , but a little brown and crispy.

Enjoy and have a great dinner!pexels-photo-775707.jpeg

CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP – Crockpot

img_6521

This recipe is from a friend that brought our family a huge batch when my dad was in Hospice and it was a hit! Since it was new, I am also considering it as one of New Year goals of trying a new recipe ✅

What I love about this soup recipe is that it is for the crockpot and being a working mom, I absolutely LOVE my crockpot!🥣👍🏻 Another added bonus, everyone in the family likes it (rarely happens :/ )

Ingredients:

  • 2 cans of cream of chicken soup

  • 1 package of 90 second Chicken flavored rice ( I like the Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice Roasted Chicken)

  • 1 box of Mrs. Grass extra noodle soup (use both sides of noodles and flavoring)

  • 2 cups of chicken ( I just use 2 cans of canned, cooked chicken)

  • 2 cans of carrots

  • some onion

Put all in the crockpot, stir, add 10 cups of water and stir again. Then just wait for the yumminess of this delicious soup in 4 hours on high or most the time I use the 10 hours on low.

This is a great leftover for later in the week!

Mom’s All Day Pork Roast

I usually buy a pork roast butt (if it has some fat mixed in, that makes it more moist), maybe 2 or 3, when they are on sale. I typically leave the house by 7a and when I arrive back home at 530, dinner is ready!

My mom always used this recipe and now I share it with my family (thanks mom!).

Just a few ingredients: Pork Roast, 1 can of Cream of Mushroom soup, salt, pepper, garlic salt

  1. Spray Crockpot with non-stick cooking spray or use one of those easy clean up crockpot liners.
  2. If the roast has a “net” cut it off and put roast in crockpot.
  3. Spread mushroom soup all over roast and then fill 1/2 the can with water and add to pot.
  4. Sprinkle salt, pepper and garlic salt to preferred taste.
  5. Cover and put on low or 8/10 hours, whatever setting your crockpot has.
