Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Who wants to use a hot oven in the summer? Not me, that’s for sure! I love this quick and easy recipe for pulled pork, it requires a slow cooker, but even if only for this, the investment is well worth it.

As always, this recipe is completely gluten free. Another thing I love about this is that there’s plenty of meat to get several meals from it, thus saving time and money, and who doesn’t like that?

Enjoy!

Cinnamon Apple Pork Chops

Happy  Thursday, everyone!

As promised, today I have the recipe for cinnamon apple pork chops.

My husband and I both loved it, though we realized as we sat down to eat that neither one of us likes cooked apples. A fact we had known previously, but I suppose conveniently forgot because they sounded good at the time. (Kind of inconvenient because I made an apple crisp for dessert. We ate it anyway. With some amazing ice cream!)

That being said, I missed yet another year of apple picking this year. Which I was really disappointed about. My husband’s never been, and I’ve missed three years now. Oh well, hopefully next year!

I served the pork chops with my autumn rice which you can find here along with a brown sugar acorn squash. I also forgot the squash the night of the pork chops. So sad. It was still a good meal though!

And the pork chops were even more amazing leftover when I sliced them and fried them with the apples to reheat them! Caramelized brown sugar, yum!

Here’s the recipe, I hope you enjoy!
