OVEN PORK CHOPS AND POTATOES


This recipe is an old one and it seems to me like it is simply a casserole of pork chops and scalloped potatoes.

Very easy to put together and fairly economical too ;-)

I substituted whole milk for milk made from powdered milk and it worked fine … and I halved the recipe as usual, posting the original for larger families.

We had chocolate chips cookies for desert.


OVEN PORK CHOPS AND POTATOES ~ serve 6

6 Pork chops * 6 medium-sized potatoes * 6 TBSP Flour * 2-1/2 cups Milk * 1-1/2 teaspoons Salt * 1/8 teaspoon Black pepper * 2 TBSP Butter

Brown chops in a skillet.


Sprinkle chops with seasoning. Place chops in a casserole dish and put a layer of raw sliced potatoes on top of chops.


Heat milk – do not boil – and add flour and butter to hot milk, stirring until smooth. Pour this mixture over the potatoes.

Bake at 350-degrees for 1-1/2 hours … or until potatoes are soft and chops are baked.


Earlier, while preparing to mix up a batch of chocolate chips cookies, I went to the ‘fridge and realized I HAD NO EGGS! And after a day in the Park, I did not feel like driving all the way to Castle Rock to get another dozen, so Hubs said he’d drive to the store down the street and grab a dozen. What could I do? I needed eggs, so I said “okay” – which really meant … I suppose any egg in a crisis is better than no egg … I do everything I can to feed my family healthy and clean foods (no preservatives, no vaccines, no hormones: get the picture?) and I really did not want the watery tasteless store bought eggs.

My husband knows me well ;-)

THIS is what he came back home with – HEALTHY AND CLEAN EGGS, and they are brown too :-D

Who knew? If healthy/clean eggs are available at the local mom-pop-store, we may not have to drive an hour to get safe eggs anymore unless we get a hankering for Ameraucana eggs (pretty turquoise colored eggs - smaller, but tasty) ... these are a mere 5 minutes away :-D

I am not a girly-girl, but I gotta admit that I squealed like a girl when I saw them. With a twinkle in his eye, Hubs said he hunted high and low for eggs he knew I’d be happy with; and I’m thinking he really wanted those cookie too! LOL


I LOVE my man. ((((THANK YOU BABE)))) *kiss-kiss*

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO ACTS ~ Chapter 6



THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO Acts ~ Chapter 6

In those  days when the number of disciples were increasing, the Greeks in the group began to complain against the Jews because their widows were overlooked in the daily administration of relief. Therefore The Twelve summoned a meeting of the general body of disciples and said, “It does not seem right that we should neglect the Word of Elohei in order to serve at tables. Brothers, will you therefore choose from among you 7 men who are well spoken of and full of The Ruach, men of wisdom whom we can then put in charge of this matter. But we shall always devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of preaching.”

This proposal found favor with the whole gathering. So they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of The Ruach; also Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicholas, a proselyte (a recent convert) of Antioch. They set them before the Apostles, who first prayed and then laid hands on them. The Word of Elohei increased and the number of disciples in Jerusalem multiplied greatly. Even a considerable number of priests accepted the Faith.

Stephen, a man of great faith and power, performed great miracles and signs among the people. But a dispute started between Stephen and some members of a synagogue called the Freedmen, together with some Cyrenians, Alexandrians, and people from Cilicia and Asia Minor. But they could not match the wisdom and the Spirit with which he spoke. So they bribed men to say, ‘We have heard him speak blasphemous things against Moshe and against Elohim.’ By this means they stirred up the people, the elders and scribes, and they rushed upon him, seized him and took him to the council. False witnesses were set up, who testified, ‘This man keeps on saying abusive things against the holy place, and against the law. We ourselves have heard him say that Yeshua of Nazareth is going to destroy this place and change the customs that Moshe gave us’.

The men seated in the council were all staring at Stephen, and they saw that his face appeared like that of an angel.
