Crock Pot Pork Chops

The crock pot came through for us yet again this evening!

I’ve made pork chops in the crock pot once before and figured I’d attempt to make them again in a new way this evening.

They turned out great! They were tender enough to cut with a fork and the veggies were a delicious addition to the meal.

Great dinner!

Ryan and I intentionally ate dinner early this evening because our new couch, loveseat and dining room furniture were supposed to be delivered today between 2 and 6 p.m.

It’s after 7:30 p.m. and still no dice. Boo!

I haven’t given up hope yet.

Puppy Playtime

Since we clearly couldn’t go anywhere this evening just in case the furniture guys showed up, we spent our time after dinner playing in the backyard with Sadie.

Willow the Cat

And in other news…

Did you guys hear about Willow the cat?

Five years ago, Willow disappeared from a home near the Rocky Mountains in Colorado and was found yesterday in New York, nearly 1,800 miles away from her original home.

Crazy, huh? I bet she has some stories to tell!

    I want to put a camera on my boy-friends cat. She’s such a little mischievous thing always bringing us dead animals and poofing away than popping up out of nowhere! I think it’d be interesting 🙂

    I’m always looking for recipes to make in the crockpot. Since the weather is cooling down it’s the perfect time to use it more and more. I love pork chops, so this recipe is awesome, especially with veggies. Thanks!

    Yum, love crock pot meals!!

    Ugh, delivery guys are the worst… waiting HOURS for something delivered.. so annoying! At least you have hub and puppy and nice weather to wait it out?!

    I never knew pork chops could ever be that soft!
    Gah. Don’t you hate when people give you that big of a time gap! : /

    I love using the crock pot. It’s the best feeling knowing that dinner is ready to go when coming home from a long day at work! 🙂

    That is an incredible story about the cat! I can’t believe she traveled so far!

    i heard about willow the cat… in an article with a hilarious video called “webcam 101 for seniors” or something- basically an older couple trying to take a photo w/ their webcam but they were recording themselves w/o knowing…its hilarious!


  7. Liz says

    Holy crap! Can’t believe the cat was found so far away. I love the Homeward Bound movies! My favorite is probably Lost in San Francisco.

    That hermit crab story up above is amazing, too. Animals are incredible! 🙂

    I saw Willow the cat story at work and almost fell of my chair. Our cat Java is a carbon copy! I am so happy for Willow but wonder if a family was taking care of her for 5 years. If so, how awful for that family.
