Apple Pork Recipe~

So my boyfriend went to visit his family on the other side of Australia over the weekend and I picked him up at the airport at midnight. After getting him home and crawling into bed I then went to work after four hours of sleep and completed a ten hour shift.

I feel so accomplished! 

After doing that, wouldn't anybody want to have a quick and easy dinner to cook? Well, I found something that was quite easy and came out absolutely delish! I got my inspiration from the the Simply Recipes website and adapted it to something that I could easily whip up in one pan. 

People who knew me growing up know that I don't drink alcohol. I don't like the taste of it. When I met this boy he introduced me to Rekorderlig and to this day it is the only form of alcohol that I like. Now...how could I resist a recipe that I can use this drink with and still have half a bottle to drink afterwards? :)


Ingredients
* 1 cup apple cider
* 3 teaspoons cornstarch
* 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
* 3 tablespoons dijon mustard
* 1 onion, thinly sliced
* 2 - 3 cloves of garlic, minced
* pork chops(the giant pack I bought up there - on special woo - was enough for 5 servings for us)
* 2 unpeeled apples

So I started (despite the picture up there being apples first, haha I didn't take a picture of my first steps) by combining all of the ingredients from the apple cider to dijon mustard in a big bowl and mixing it well. Then I took the core out of the apples and sliced it up into thin slices and put it all into the bowl with the sauce mix. ...okay I say all but a few slices of apple may have disappeared before reaching the bowl.

Then I seasoned the meat with salt and pepper. Also throw some salt and pepper into the sauce, to taste. However much you want, really.


In a big pan, I half cooked the onion and the garlic so they were starting to smell of that delicious aroma.


I then browned off the meat but didn't quite cook it all the way through and put them aside on a plate.


Next went in the sauce mixture and I heated it up until it was just beginning to bubble.


When it reached that stage, I somehow managed to make all the meat fit back in. With that, I covered and let it simmer gently for about 15 - 20 minutes untilt he meat was cooked through and the apples became really nice and soft.


We then rooted around the fridge and found some green beans that had been cooked with some garlic and cooked up some brown rice!


Delicious dinner is delicious and all with a half bottle of rekorderlig to spare.

Clefairy (Pokedoll style)

Hello! I come with another pattern that isn't being added to the pokedex library as this one is done in pokedoll (cute and round) style rather than based on the original dex image. But this one is really quick and easy to work up! I made this with DK weight yarn and my usual 4.00 size hook. The plush works up to be 18cm (7 inches) tall and 21cm (about 8 1/2 inches) arm span!

#778 Mimikyu

Hello all!! I've been mysteriously quiet lately but I've been very productive. Just lazy when it comes to actually resizing my images and putting these patterns up. I have a backlog of actual patterns to put up so I'll work through them slowly. I figure I would come back with one that a lot of people have been happy with. This Mimikyu is 30.5cm (12 inches) tall from base to the tip of its crooked ear. Features are needlefelted on and everything is sewn on and attached so there are no hard parts.  Head/Body Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6) Round 2: 2SCx6 (12) Round 3: [2SC, SC]x6 (18) Round 4: [2SC, SCx2]x6 (24) Round 5: [2SC, SCx3]x6 (30) Round 6: [2SC, SCx4]x6 (36) Round 7: [2SC, SCx5]x6 (42) Round 8: [2SC, SCx6]x6 (48) Round 9: [2SC, SCx7]x6 (54) Round 10: [2SC, SCx8]x6 (60) Round 11 - 20: SCx60 (60, 10 rounds) Round 21: [SC2tog, SCx8]x6 (54) Round 22: [SC2tog, SCx7]x6 (48) Round 23: [SC2tog, SCx6]x6 (42)  

#725 Litten

Hey all! Sorry for being slow! I have had quite a few patterns that I've been sitting on while I worked on new projects so I'm slowly going to post them all over the following weeks starting with this black fire cat! Litten length nose to tail end: 30.5cm (12 inches) and height going from tip of the ear down to feet: 26cm (10 inches) tall. Made from DK weight yarn and a little bit of felting materials for the eyes. Or you can just felt down yarn or even just embroider on the eyes. I also used the felting tools to flatten down the forehead markings and the eyes. Head Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6) Round 2: 2SCx6 (12) Round 3: [2SC, SC]x6 (18) Round 4: [2SC, SCx2]x6 (24) Round 5: [2SC, SCx3]x6 (30) Round 6: [2SC, SCx4]x6 (36) Round 7: [2SC, SCx5]x6 (42) Round 8: [2SC, SCx6]x6 (48) Round 9: [2SC, SCx7]x6 (54) Round 10: [2SC, SCx8]x6 (60) Round 11 - 16: Scx60 (60, 6 rounds) Round 17 - 18: SCx10, change to red/orange
