This was the perfect meal for a cool, Fall day...

I had a pork loin roast, apple cider, a small butternut squash, some leeks needing used, so this quite delicious & satisfying meal was what came of it all...My whole family loved it...the meat was fork tender and flavors were just wonderful.

I hope you'll try it sometime!

Enjoy!
