Applesauce Pork Curry

There’s a reason pork is paired with apples  because they go together like peas and carrot,  Like peanut butter and jelly, the flavors just mix so well.  I make pork curry often but I found adding applesauce to it makes it  better. Well I don’t add applesauce , I add an apple and it adds so much flavor and substance to the dish. I use pork chops because I like flavor of the bones in my curry. I have a good knife that slices through bone like butter and I am not shy to use it.  If your squeamish about cutting  through bone use boneless pork.  This tasted really good with rice, bread or poured over a big salad.

On a personal note : I was travelling on the train yesterday and this beautiful song came out of the air and spoke to me. There are a lot of interpretations to this song but I ‘d like to think of it a as song of innocence, childlike trust and believing in who you are.  No matter what life throws at you , you hold your head high and believe in you.   Childlike trust …is that even possible as a grownup?  I tend to trust very  few people in my life and when I do, it’s with all my heart, I guess childlike.  Then stuff happens, people change, loyalties shift  and I have to remind myself that no matter what, I turn to my creator who is the only one who really understands me and  is there for me no matter what.  So I hope you listen this beautiful song  and let it speak to you in its own unique way.

I don’t consider myself a judgmental person but sometimes I tend to speak my mind, which gets me into trouble I guess and yeah that’s me.  And yeah everyone acts out under duress I guess but I retract and apologize in my own way which is more than some folks do. We are have our sore points and mine is this : I am a very simple person. If you meet me you will know. My hair is almost always tied up, no make up or accessories.  So when people imitate me  I don’t like it. Maybe its not their intention but I feel like they want to outdo me. When your’e simple in your way of dressing etc almost anyone can do better so yeah I don’t like it and I may lash out coz that’s a sore point for me. Stems back to my childhood hurt ( Long story..I wont bore you).

Listening to this song helps me regroup and place my trust on my creator so I don’t mind the pain  I feel when my close friends let me down.  It helps.  Life is never perfect but we all find ways to help ourselves. You cry, wash your face and then let it go. No matter what the ending,  our life goes back to our creator who is the only one we need to depend on.
