Here you have a fabulous,
meal for summer,
Pretty versatile, eh?
I found this great dish at Mels Kitchen Cafe. She’s got a great collection over there and I find myself browsing her site regularly.
These fabulous Pork Chops with Caramelized Onions and Apples are a wonderful find. Mel baked hers in the oven, but since temperatures are rising (finally!!!!) this summer, I cooked mine in the crock pot.
They turned out great and were wonderful with
the Mashed Potatoes with Roasted Garlic that I posted yesterday.
Whenever I find a recipe that tastes this good,
and is this easy
I give a little cheer in my heart.
A cheer for Delicious Food that doesn’t take up too much Time.
I don’t know about you all, but time around here is precious.
Get these tasty pork chops in the crock pot,
kick your feet up
and read a few stories to your kids today.
Ok…if your kids are in their 30’s that
might be a bit tricky! How about a nice phone call?
It seems that every time I look up my kids are taller!
Does that ever happen to any of you?
Ok if you don’t have kids (or if they are 30) probably not.
But you get the idea….
Making Delicious Food with out spending too much time,
gives you the chance to hang around witness the
amazement of your kids getting taller.
That is something to be grateful for.
just having the time to take it all in…..
