Root Beer Reindeer

I wanted to post this before the new year, but time got away from me.  This is so cute and I wanted to post it so I would remember it and maybe pay it forward to someone next Christmas. 

On Christmas Day one of the Young Single Adults came to our home for dinner.  She brought us these cute Root Beer Reindeer.  Just glue on some wiggle eyes and a red nose and add some pipe cleaner antlers to each bottle of root beer.  Then tie a little card saying "Merry Christmas".  Don't you just love them?  I do! 
Thank you, Maria!  We loved having you in our home!

Crock Pot Pork Chops

So let's start the new year with a delicious crock pot recipe.  I've already made it twice!  I think this one will be one of my favorites.  Really easy--Really good!

Crock Pot Pork Chops

6 lean boneless pork chops
1/2 cup flour
1 tablespoon salt
1 (10 oz.) can chicken and rice soup
1 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons oil

In a bowl mix together the flour, salt, dry mustard and garlic powder.  Coat pork chops in the flour mixture and brown in oil in a skillet.  Place browned pork chops in the crock pot.  Pour undiluted soup on top of pork chops and cook for 6 - 8 hours on low.

**The soup makes a delicious gravy that I put on top of rice.  My mouth is watering just thinking about it!
