Ideally, I like to be home to start preparing dinner around 4:00 in the afternoon. Realistically, that doesn't always happen.
On days that I know I will be out of the house for most of the day, or if I just want to have the dinner prep work done earlier in the day, I use my crock pot.
One recipe my family enjoys is Crock Pot Pork Chops. You can add or delete or change the ingredients to suit your own family. This recipe suits our size and our tastes.
Crock Pot Pork Chops
4 cups brown rice
6 whole carrots
1 onion, cut in wedges
8 pork chops
2 cans "cream of" soup
4 cups water
Place first 4 ingredients in a large crock pot in the order given. Stir soup and water together and pour on top. Cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 3 hours. (The rice in this dish is sort of mushy and creamy from the soup and the long cooking time, but we like it this way.)
