I am trying to write more blog entries in the new year! My next one is about a delicious recipe that I literally *does anyone else watch Parks & Recreation and love that word now as much as I do?* made up on the spot! I was home on Monday, enjoying a snow day (our second one in less than 4 days) and decided to change our dinner plan to include the slow cooker. I usually can’t make crock pot recipes during the week because I would have to set it at about 6:30 am, and sometimes I don’t get home until 5:30 or 6:30 at night. 12 hours is far too long! I do not have a delayed start on my crock pot, so the time I start it is when it starts to cook.
I still had to attend graduate class on Monday night (the roads were fine where I live, but my school district, which is almost an hour away, had to cancel due to snow), so I set the crock pot at 2:30 for 4 hours. That way, the hubby would have dinner ready for him and I could eat later! I did end up eating later and it was delicious, and then we went out to watch the OSU vs. Oregon game! Anyway, here is what I threw into the crock pot to create a new recipe:
4 boneless pork chops
1 can cream of potato soup
1/2 can 2% milk
1/4 can water
Salt and pepper to taste
It turned out to be so delicious, and I liked it even better than using cream of mushroom or golden mushroom soup, like I have done in the past. In the future, I would love to add chunks of potato to it, and I had some in the pantry but didn’t even think about it. The recipe is super simple, but that is what makes it great — what would you add to it to make it your own?
I’ve included some pictures of our dinner, along with some beautiful snow pictures from Monday! Enjoy.
