Crockpot Pork Chop Delight

This was really, really good. I'll warn you though, it's a sodium bomb. Since I used the crockpot, I skipped browning the chops in a pan and just seasoned them with seasoned salt and pepper. It was too much salt when you added the onion soup mix and the cream of mushroom soup. Next time, and there WILL be a next time, I'll season the chops with a no salt blend and use the rest of the recipe as is. I served this with mashed potatoes and green beans. Wonderful comfort food.

Strawberry Bread

I used this batter to make muffins and they were DELICIOUS!!

  • Strawberry Bread

  • 3 cups fresh strawberries; 1 cup mashed and 2 cups diced
  • 3 1/8 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2/3 cups vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/4 cups chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter and flour two 9 x 5 inch loaf pans. Slice strawberries, and place in medium-sized bowl. Sprinkle lightly with sugar, and set aside while preparing bread mixture. Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt and baking soda in large bowl: mix well. Blend oil and eggs into strawberries. Add strawberry mixture to flour mixture, blending until dry ingredients are just moistened. Stir in pecans. Divide batter into pans
Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until tester inserted comes out clean. Let cool in pans on wire rack for 10 minutes. Turn loaves out, and cool completely.
