Mushroom Onion Slow Cooker Pork Chops

Mushroom Onion Slow Cooker Pork Chops

If you have been foll;owing me on Instagram and Facebook, then you have seen my car after a lovely accident I got into the Monday before Thanksgiving.  It was 1000% my fault and I am kicking myself- over and over and over.  It was Monday AM, driving into work and the holidays and the short work week was on my mind (both a blessing AND a curse).  I was at a stop light and was looking at something in my passenger seat when I heard a honk and noticed vehicles driving in my peripheral vision.  I rushed, looked up and accelerated... and stopped, rapidly.  Not soon enough. 

I rear-ended the vehicle in front of me.  Thankfully, nobody was hurt, my vehicle sustained all the damage and I have full coverage insurance.  Sigh.  

It has definitely put a damper on things.  In August, I decided to change my insurance policy.  I have less than a year on my car loan and wanted to focus on paying it off in the next few months.  I dropped the car rental coverage and raised my deductible.   I am also due for my timing belt, tune up and front tires.  Face. Palm.  So, needless to say- my car is FINALLY going into the body shop today (Monday) and picking up my rental car.   

When it rains, it pours. Right?

I certainly put the desire to write on the back burner.  See, a month ago, I decided to start banking a ton of NON sponsored posts and although I have photos and recipes written up- the desire to WRITE hasn't been there.  I truly tried to balance it all out but... life. Life gets crazy.

Now, I am feeling it.  I have been watching a ton of Crossing Jordan and have some serious Tom Selleck Screen time and I am feeling motivated to share this recipe. 

A couple of weeks ago, I shared a recipe for creamy gouda macaroni and cheese that was soooo good.  I decided that since I had a lot of left over cream of mushroom soup, it'd make for an AWESOME crock pot pork chops recipe.  I was right.
