As I’ve told y’all before I am no photographer and this recipe didn’t cooperate with trying to get a decent picture as the pork chops just fell apart on me, but it’s delicious and worth sharing anyway. I found this recipe in another of my church cookbooks and the caption under the recipe read “no teeth needed for chewing”. I got a chuckle from that caption and just had to give this a try. First off, after about an hour the smell of all the flavors in the crock pot started making me very hungry and it was worth the wait because this was a really good supper. I warmed up some rolls to go with it and that was it. You could brown the pork chops prior to putting them in the crock pot if you like, but I didn’t do that as I had to get school work going.
I think the older I get the more I appreciate my crock pots and one pot meals. I just can’t stand on these old legs of mine like I used to could. Every now and again I get in the mood to spend half a day in the kitchen and fix us a big meal, but more times than not I opt for the easy way out for supper. I can remember Nannie Polly pulling up a kitchen chair to the stove where she would be frying up something and she would take turns with each leg propping it up in the chair. I used to think that was just plum silly as a kid but I sure do understand why she did it now. The one thing I just can’t seem to get back from chemo, and that was 7 years ago, is my energy. No matter what vitamins I take, my energy levels are just not there anymore. I don’t get in a hurry by no means when I set into cookin’, sometimes I think I’ve hit that moment in my life that slowing down is perfectly fine. Nannie’s ole sayin’ of “prop your feet up and sit a spell” seems more fittin’ now than ever before and that’s just what I did when I threw this in the crock pot and it sure felt good.
