“Drunken Bobbing for Apples” Pork Tenderloin



I’m currently going through the Oprah 21 Day Meditation Experience and it’s focused on the Energy of Attraction.


I’m learning how we attract “things” in life, both “good” and “bad”, depending on our desires. When our desires align with our true selves, we attract “good things” effortlessly.


For me, attitude is the MVP of attraction. A joyful heart and positive attitude, attract joy and positive things into your life.


Food for thought: What are you attracting into your life? How can you tune your attitude to attract the things you desire?


Description: “Drunken Bobbing for Apples” Pork Tenderloin. Wow – that’s a mouthful! …and so is this pork tenderloin. The cardamom is the humble star of this show, while the beer and apples are supporting roles you keep hoping come back on stage. Tender, juicy and flavorful, this tenderloin is a weekday winner or a festive autumn dish for entertaining.

“Say ‘Yes’ to the seedlings and a giant forest cleaves the sky. Say ‘Yes’ to the universe and the planets become your neighbors. Say ‘Yes’ to dreams of love and freedom. It is the password to utopia.”
