I just love recipes that make one dish, then almost magically transform into something else. On Saturday, I made a Cranberry Sauce using a blend of sweeteners to replace the sugar. That is pretty good; tasty with turkey, and very traditional. I had leftovers, and well, a girl can only eat so much cranberry sauce. The men at my house are not huge fans. I wondered what else I could do with it. This is that traditional sauce pictured below.
I ran across some recipes online for a cranberry sauce for pork. I still had some pork roast that needs to be used, so I borrowed ideas from several recipes and made my own version this morning. So glad I did, because the flavors are complex and addictive...if you like fruit and pork together. I always have.

Hubby has to work a basketball game tonight, so I rushed this morning to get all three meals done and packed up to send to the station with him. For breakfast, he got a sausage sandwich. Good thing I still had some coconut flour buns already prepared. For lunch he got a Taco Salad made with Mexican Minute Beef. For his dinner, which he will have to eat alone in front of the control panel, he has the pork roast with cranberry sauce, some green beans, and some Pumpkin cakes I was playing around with last night. Sounds like a good autumn meal. All that was put together in about 30 minutes. Whew! It really does save the day to plan ahead!
