Whats For Dinner Next Week:Slow Cooker Pork Chop Dinner

Hi... there you are, I thought I heard  you drive up. Was there a lot of traffic on your drive from the city? I am out here on the patio just working on my menu's for the next week. Our little country meat market has some great Pork Chops from one of our local growers this week  I am going to build my feature recipe around those wonderful Pork Chops. It is going to be a really busy week so I am going to keep it simple.Oh I almost forgot to tell you about The Texas Star Chili Cook Off that we are having here this month. Be sure and tell all your friends to come on over and bring their best pot of Chili. I am giving some of my cook books away to the lucky winners.Texas Star Chili Cook Off 2010

  12. Hi, I'm visiting from FF! I love your menu and since I just got pork chops 'buy one get one free' this week...I can't wait to try your recipe! Thanks for sharing.

  13. Okay I made this today for a Dinner party it was fabulous and loved by all....delicious. My husband asked in the middle of the afternoon " How long are we going to have to smell that stuff before we get to eat it? My mouth is watering!" I served a huge salad, with carrot Cake and homemade butter pecan ice-cream, and Chocolate wine

    I love slow cooker recipes, perfect for a Monday after a long weekend!

  18. That sounds like a great dinner...Love all those ingredients!

  19. Looks like a great meal plan... and a wonderful Pork Slow Cooker recipe. Thank you for sharing! ~Prairie Story

  20. Lovely menu plan, and those Pork Chops sound fantastic. I love food that smells yummy while it's cooking! Your chilli cook off has arrived at the perfect time - I'm just working on a new chilli recipe. Once I'm happy with it, I'll link up - hopefully I'll be quick enough!!

  21. Miz Helen, I'm so glad you shared this with the Hearth and Soul hop because I use my crock pot for at least half of all the dinners I make throughout the winter. And if you can smell a dish in the driveway, you know it's gotta be good :)

  22. Yummmm - I love a good pork chop - I think pork chops and bacon are probably the two things that keep me from being a vegetarian - don't think I could ever give them up :-)

  23. Great crock pot dish! Thanks for sharing!

  24. Hi Miz Helen! I adore good slow cooker recipes because they make life so much easier and I can then do loads of other things on the days I am busy. Mind you, I adore cooking, but if I am "at risk" of getting take out on any given day, the slow cooker and 10 minutes in the morning puts me on the right track. Wish I could be as organized as you with menu planning! Alas, it is not to be, and I guess we are all different for a reason! Thanks for sharing on the hearth and soul hop this week.

  25. Sounds delicious! I've never heard of "pet milk", though. Excellent menu plan. -

  26. Miz Helen--That looks delish! Mr. GFE is a huge fan of pork chops and there are some in the freezer just waiting on the right recipe. ;-)


  27. I made the slow cooker pork chop meal for my family's dinner yesterday. The easiest thing to pull together yet the most delicious comforting meal! For once my dish looked like yours when it was served -- I'm getting better at this cooking every day! Thank you again for sharing your gifts.

  28. I hope you're sharing this on Crock Pot Wednesday this week:)


Your visit has been very special. I look forward to your comments, they are like opening little gifts. Thank you for stopping by and hurry back!
