Friday's Recipe to share with Friends and Family

Canada has had a very sad week this week.  There is talk everywhere about the events in Ottawa and how it has affected our country and everyone living in it.  For me I think all we can do is take the moments to cherish our family and friends.  Things are happening all around us everyday and we are only in control of ourselves.  So take some time this weekend to share memories and moments with family and friends.  Today's recipe is an easy one that pleases even the most critical crowds, what better way to gather those you love together than around the kitchen table to share a meal. Slow Cooker Pork Chops

4 thick-cut pork chops, bone in or boneless
1 (10.75 oz) can cream of chicken soup (I used 98% fat free)
1 (1 oz) package dry ranch dressing mix
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup chicken broth
pepper to taste

Directions: Combine soup, dressing mix, garlic, and broth.  Sprinkle chops with pepper (do not salt).  Place chops in slow cooker and pour soup mixture over top.  Cover and cook on high 4 hours or low 6-7 hours.  Serve over rice or hot potatoes.
