Hello from my family to yours. The weekend zoomed by as always, but we are ready to start another glorious week in the Smith house. We’re still trying to get things clean and organized and in order here, but it’s a slow process with a baby and a three year old.

Luckily I am making some yummy meals this week; plus some healthy baby food, and maybe even some blueberry banana oat muffins. Here’s what’s on the menu:

  • Ranch pork chops with mashed potatoes and green beans
  • Bacon and eggs
  • Cheesy chicken broccoli and rice
  • Chicken and refried bean tacos
  • Waffles

Breakfast food twice in one week?! Yes, because I love breakfast, and it is easy, and I have some bacon in the freezer that is dying to be devoured.

I’m sharing our ranch pork chop recipe today. I got it from a Pin linked to this website.  It’s an easy meal to make in your trusty slow cooker. Just four frozen chops, a cup of water, and two ingredients that are probably in your pantry,  – and you’ve got a delicious dish in four hours with very little prep time! Serve it with rice or mashed potatoes and a side of veggies to complete the meal. It’s comfort food that your family will gobble up and come back for more.

Easy Ranch Pork Chops

Ingredients

Four frozen boneless pork chops
One can of cream of chicken soup
One packet of ranch seasoning
One cup of water

I’m in the process of making my own cream of chicken soup dry mix. I can’t wait to start cooking with it and kick the can of out of my kitchen.

I love this recipe because I don’t have to remember to set anything out the night before. Your pork chops can go into the crock pot frozen. You can even use chicken instead of pork.

Mix the cream of chicken, ranch seasoning, and water in a bowl. Pour over the chops.wpid-1445870169638.jpg

Cook on high in your crock pot four hours

The water, soup and ranch mixture makes a creamy delicious gravy while it cooks. Note: when you use frozen chops like I did, there is extra moisture and the sauce will be extra runny. When the four hours were up I took the pork out, added a tablespoon of flour to the sauce, and stirred it in.  This helped it thicken up into a gravy.

We were so anxious to dig into this meal that I didn’t get the chance take a picture of it all finished in the crock pot! Here’s one after it was mostly gone, haha.

Serve this simple dish with mashed potatoes. We’re having green beans too.

Thanks for reading, friends! What are you making this week? I hope you’ll try this easy meal soon!

Love,
