This is a wonderful main dish, that can be cooked in the Crock Pot, so on a warm day, you don't need to heat up the kitchen. I use fresh sliced mushrooms in place of the canned called for in the recipe. I'm sure you could use any flavor of cream soup.

Crock Pot Pork Chops an Mushrooms Recipe

4 to 6 pork chops
Cooking oil
2 cans mushroom stems & pieces, undrained (or fresh sliced)
4 to 6 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 soup can milk
1 medium onion, diced
Season salt & seasoned pepper, to taste

Line bottom of Crock Pot with cubed potatoes. Brown pork chops in a little oil; drain. Layer over potatoes. Season potatoes and chops with season salt and pepper. Spread mushrooms over chops; sprinkle with onion. Mix milk and soup and pour over all.
Cook 8 hours on low or 4 to 6 hours on high until potatoes and chops are tender. (I turn to low after 4 hours, if using high).

Weekly Specials from The Prepared Pantry 

This is a very good salad and perfect for a summer gathering. I especially like it, as can make it up ahead for busy days.

Chicken Grape Salad Recipe

2-1/2 cups diced cooked chicken
4 bacon strips, cooked crisp and crumbled
1 can (8 oz.) sliced water chestnuts, drained
1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
1 cup halved green grapes
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tsp. finely minced onion
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
Dash Worcestershire sauce
Salt & pepper, to taste

In a large bowl, combine chicken, bacon, water chestnuts, celery and grapes. In another bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients; add to salad and toss to coat. Chill thoroughly before serving. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

NOTE: I like to add some cooked Sea Shell pasta to this, but isn't necessary. I rinse the water chestnuts with cold water and drain and cut them in half, so aren't so big. I also use 6 slices bacon and more onion than what is called for.

Good morning Nancy and all Landers,
Newsletter looks great. Busy day today - Wedding reception and two graduation parties lol. Seems like everything lands on the same day. I have a question for Robbie IN - in your recipe for Peach Cobbler does it matter what kind of milk you use? Wondering if whole milk or 2% would change the taste. Has any of our Nancylanders bought or used Black Forest Ham? A lady at my local grocery store swears by this ham over any other - says the tastes is far superior to any other ham.
