Cinnamon Frosting and Apple Gravy

I tried out a new recipe tonight. I made Roasted Pork with Apple Gravy. The roast pork wasn't anything fancy just rubbed with some olive oil, chopped garlic, and salt and pepper. I'm pretty proud of the apple gravy. It's apple cider, chicken stock, apple sauce, Chinese 5 spice blend, and sauteed onions. It was super delicious. If anyone's interested, shoot me an e-mail, and I'll send it to you.

I'm proud to say that even though 3ft and I played in frosting and gingerbread all day long I barely had any. Sure, I had some frosting. It's homemade cinnamon frosting. How can you avoid it completely? But I didn't eat it straight from the tubs like I wanted so that's something. It wasn't any issue to avoid the gingerbread. I burnt it. 3ft and the husband are hovering like vultures but I'm totally fine with NOT eating it. Now when I bake it again and do NOT burn it, then I might have a problem.

I didn't do any extra exercising. I just did the normal everyday chasing after kids and housecleaning. I'm starting to feel normal again. I should be back at it by Monday for sure. Have a great weekend!
