Fall is one of my absolute favorite times of the year. I love when after a long hot Summer it starts to cool down and you feel a crispness in the air. Picking pumpkins, kicking off the holiday season,and finally dusting off those adorable boots you’ve been dying to wear… all of these things make me love it so much. Well I decided to kick off the “official start” of Fall by making an amazing fall-ish meal. I can’t think of anything more fall than apples and a nice hearty roast. Well, this combines both of those! Plus nothing goes better with pork than apples in my opinion. This recipe is so unbelievably easy and it just screams fall!
