Crockpot Pork Chops

My days used to be long because I’d stay at work late…usually trying to keep up on my inbox. When I got home, Jeremiah had either finished cooking dinner or it was close to being done. Oh, the good old days.

A few weeks ago, Jeremiah took a job downtown. Part of the deal in him taking the job was for us to carpool. Although our offices are only about five miles apart, it takes me – on a good day – about an hour to get to and from work. I also have a new level of traffic stress sitting in bumper to bumper traffic or dodging car accidents in mid-town. By the time we get home, we are tired, hungry, and stressed.

One thing that has become a saving grace for us is our crockpot dinners. For Christmas, Jeremiah bought me a Crockpot with a timer. (And yes, I requested this gift.) And thanks to Pinterest, we can find lots of tasty recipes to cook in it.

This is a recipe we made for dinner last Monday. We got done eating our serving and Jeremiah said, “Do we have more?” I seconded those words. May you enjoy this recipe as much as we did.

Honey Garlic Marinade

I work two jobs so I treasure the one day I get off a week. Lately, it has been Mondays. Believe it or not, I actually look forward to Mondays. For 10 years, I worked 7 days a week. It’s nice to be in a place where I don’t have to work every day. I’ve also learned I can break things up like just mopping one floor this week and another the following week. It is also the one day of the week I can cook lots of new recipes. This is actually one I tried today. It did its job in the fridge while I washed 10 loads of laundry.
