Pomegranate, Apple, and Walnut Salad

Recipes Posted One Year Ago:

Our last post of the year! Happy New Year to you and yours! May it be the healthiest year ever for you!

Tasty tasty salad here! I could eat this entire salad by myself!!  If you are planning a get together for New Years Eve, this would make a great potluck dish as you could easily double it (along with the Bacon Wrapped Dates mentioned above).  Please notice in the picture below that I finally got a backsplash in my kitchen, hooray!!  Thank you Uncle Joe!!

Apple Crumble

Recipes posted a year ago:

Today my dad turns 65.  Happy Birthday Dad!!  I know my dad would say that he is proud of me, but I must say that I am more proud of him than any daughter could be.  He is the best dad and a wonderful grandfather.  My dad has taught me to be grateful for what I have, to be genuine, to take responsibility for your actions, and to fight for what you believe in.  Mostly he has taught (and given me) love and respect and always makes me laugh.  I love you dad!!  This recipe is for you and your sweet tooth!!

Dad and I a long time ago

Dad and I more recently 🙂

Pumpkin and Apple Chili

Recipes posted a year ago:

I basically took some  fall fruit and veggies from our CSA and threw in some elk meat, the tomatoes I canned, and anything else that sounded good, to make this yummilicious chili.  Local, organic, seasonal produce is so extraordinarily wonderful!  I highly recommend signing up for a CSA near you.  You will not regret it one bit!! This is a quick and easy recipe to throw into the Crockpot.

Sweet Onion and Apple Relish

This was the side dish that was hiding in the background of that last photo of the spare ribs in yesterday’s post.  By using a lot of the same ingredients as the rib brine, we end up with the perfect companion to those and many other meals.

Braised Pork Chops and Coconut-Fried Apples

This could have been two separate recipes, but there is something about pork chops with apples that makes this combination necessary to prepare at the same time.  Of course, after having made them once, I am sure that some time in the future I’m going be making these apples again by themselves…because they were the star of this meal.
