Fall is definitely my favorite time of year. Not only mean pumpkin, but also my next favorite fall food — apples. This week I made my first applesauce. Not bad for a first try. Very appley.
It was a part of the Rachael Ray recipe, Pork Chops & Applesauce. I didn't have pork chops, but had a tenderloin chilling in the freezer, so I used the glaze she suggested and browned it, then roasted in the oven along side the potatoes and green beans. I think the pork was good on its own, and the applesauce was good on its own, but eaten together, they just didn't quite work.
On the other hand, the meal was very points-friendly. If you cut the oil on the potatoes and don't really add any extra oil to the green beans, it should come out to be about 8 pts., which is a good number for dinner.
