Carrot and Apple Pork Stir Fry

We had some leftover pork from a roast, and we were all but out of groceries.  A few carrots, some apples much past their prime, and two hungry tummies.

Please tell me this happens at your house too.

Schedules get busy.
Plans get scratched.
Dinner sneaks up on you.
And there's no food in the house.

We ended up putting a cinnamon brown-sugar glaze over the carrots and apples, adding in the shredded pork and serving it over brown rice.

We enjoyed it very much.

Smile.  Dinner was saved and our tummies felt much better.
