The Inauguration of Bran Appetit!

After going back and forth for a while, I’ve finally decided to start my own blog! Thanks to advice and encouragement from my husband and my friend, Beadie, I think this is the right time.

Since I already told my mom and sister I would be starting this tonight, I thought it was only right to start with our dinner from tonight. This was a great meal.

Apricot and Mustard Stuffed Pork



This was actually really easy to make.

I had a 1.5 lb pork loin that I thawed in the fridge. Tonight, I cut it into 4 pieces and then cut a slit in the side of each one.

I took a can of halved apricots in juice and diced them up. Mix about 4 diced apricots with some whole grain mustard, diced onion, salt, pepper, and apricot jam. Stuff each pork slice with a little of the apricot stuffing. I put salt, pepper, and a little whole grain mustard on the outside of the pork and baked at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes.

On the side, we had whole wheat couscous with the rest of the diced apricots and kale cooked in apricot juice, onion, and whole grain mustard.

Pork is the hardest thing for me to cook and cook well, but it turned out really good tonight!

Stay tuned for tomorrow – I am excited about lunch :)
