What we've been eating: Crock Pot Pork Chops
Second of all, I didn't really have a second of all, so I don't know why I said, "first of all." Hmm, maybe, second of all, I really like pork. That's it. And I really do. I eat it more than any other meat I do believe.
This is a recipe I pinned a while back ago on Pinterest from Real Mom Kitchen, and it gets a 5 out of 5 stars from me. Yumm-o. I made it a little differently than the recipe calls for. (I don't know that I ever follow a recipe exactly. Have you noticed that theme here?) :)
I used 4 pork chops (about 1/2 in. thick)
1 packet dry Ranch Dressing Seasoning
10oz can Cream of Chicken Soup
Just dump the pork chops, (mine were even frozen when I put them in...remember my comment above??) ranch seasoning, and the can of cream of chicken soup into the crock pot. I put my crock pot on low for 6 hours. She says you can also get the job done in 4 hours on high.
I'm not a huge fan of garlic, so I just made my mashed potatoes plain. Nothing special to it. I just cut them up, boiled them, drained, then added a little butter, and milk and mashed them until they were the consistency I like. There's no science to my potato making, I just throw stuff in until they look and taste right!
**(I would suggest not adding a lot of salt to your potatoes when making the recipe. The gravy is salty enough)
Perfect for a day when I am working or have a lot going on. And we enjoyed it on a perfect fall evening outside on the patio. Perfect :)
I'll be linking some HERE!
