Saturday Stirrings

Over here in Antarctica Washington, we’re still enjoying comfort foods and crock pot meals. They go well with the snow, which is forecast for this weekend. Here is one of my top five favorites when I'm hungry for slow cooking fare. I like to serve it over rice with frozen peas on the side.

Spicy and Tender Crock Pot Pork Chops
5-6 thick or 10-16 thin center-cut pork loin chops, about 2 lbs
3-6 tbsp oil
1 med. onion, diced
1 med. green pepper, diced
2 (8 oz) cans tomato sauce
7-8 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp vinegar
3 tsp salt
3-4 tsp Worcestershire Sauce

Brown chops in oil in skillet. Transfer to slow cooker; discard oil. Add remaining ingredients to cooker.

Cover. Cook on Low 8-10 hours or high 4-5 hours.

I bet your house smells really good all day long while this is cooking in the crock pot. I don't really know how to cook pork chops, so this recipe will help. It sounds easy enough.

You're having snow? I'm so sorry!

I wish I'd had this recipe a few weeks ago. My pork chops turned out pretty bland - these sounds yummy!

We are big pork fans. Here in rural America we can buy it fresh from the farmer :-) And this recipe sounds fantabulouso! [if that's not a word, it should be]
Like your new blog look!

Hello Farrah~
Oh these look delicious! I don't have too many crock pot receipes and am always looking for more.

Thank you for checking out my family blog. I am not fancy at blogging, yet. I tried once to do something fancy and almost lost the whole blog :-) Yours is so very well done and you are great about changing it for the seasons! I love it. I am wondering if you would mind if I put a link to your site on my blog so my friends can check yours out. I have already sent many of them some of your receipes!

Oh, you asked about Scrabble and my youngest, Micah 8, he usually only does 3-4 letter words. The first few times we played I helped him see words he could play, now he can do it by himself. He also has been finding words during his quiet reading time to "suprise" us!We are not very competitive..... yet. I bet as they grow that will come.

I am going to pick up the games you suggested! Thank you!! we are always on the look out for new family games!

Hoping you are well,
