Mushroom Gravy Pork Chops

It's been another busy last couple of days and the next couple of days are going to be busy just as well. Its all starting...its right about this time every year I'm running around like my head is cut off! I'm sure its that way for everyone else just as well! We get to have some fun this weekend though at least! We have Riley's Fall Carnival at her school tonite and I can't wait to get in there and beat some little kids at the games, it sounds like it will be lots of fun! Tomorrow were going to the Pumpkin patch to get more pumpkins and get to carving, we just haven't gotten around to it yet, and then pizza night tomorrow night along with scary movies alllll weekend long...

I sure hope the girls enjoy Nightmare on Elm Street.

I'm kidding....they can watch "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" over and over again...and of course you cant forget "The Nightmare before Christmas." I have some freaky little kids that enjoy that kind of thing...I guess they do take after their parents a little bit...

And of course we cant forget Trick and Treating! I really wish they were doing it Saturday night here since its land on Sunday this year and its being a school night and all, and some town are, but not ours. I guess I get it though, its not really Halloween unless you do it Halloween night. Still it would have been easier on Saturday, but who am I to change Halloween? And then the day after Halloween will start in on all the Christmas commercials, which I really love! Its gets me all giddy like a little kid again!

Last night I made Mushroom Gravy Pork Chops. This is another recipe I got off of Allrecipes. I've been making this one for years, its so super duper easy. I have added a few things to it to give it a little more umph! So if your feeling lazy and don't want to go to a whole lot of trouble, go with this one, its comfort food and its good!

5-6 boneless pork chops
2 cans of cream of mushroom soup
10 oun of evaporated milk
1 small onion sliced
1 small can of sliced mushrooms, drained (I was actually out of these this time, I could have sworn there was some in the pantry...dangit!)
1 tbs sherry cooking wine
1 tsp garlic powder
Ground pepper, and "Tony"
1-2 tbs olive oil

Heat up your skillet with the olive oil on medium heat. Sprinkle each side of the pork chops with good ole "Tony". Cook each side for about 5 minutes along with the onions. Preheat oven to 350. In a bowl, mix your soups, evaporated milk (you can do less or more depending how thick you want your gravy to be), mushrooms, sherry, garlic powder and ground pepper. Lay your pork chops in a big casserole dish (9 x 13) Pour the mushroom gravy mix over the tops of the pork chops. Bake for 45 minutes.

And there ya go, this is some dang good comfort food right here! Serve with some mashed potatoes (which I did not do because I was to lazy to even peel the darn things) or you could make some creamy macaroni and cheese and corn! Mmm Mmm! Enjoy!

Happy Halloween!
Have fun!
Be safe!
And eat allll your kids candy!

  1. This is my kind of dinner! You're so funny. I can't wait until my kids like scary movies and can watch them with me. My mom used to drag me to the movies to see ones like Halloween and Friday the 13th and tell me they wouldn't be scary. Then I got older and wiser and still went to see scary movies with her like Nightmare on Elm Street. To this day, I have a fear of knives all because of Freddy Krueger. She also made me go to all the haunted houses in town. I haven't been to a haunted house since high school. Nowadays, it's all about trick or treating, Charlie Brown, Dora and more Dora, and eating all my kid's candy! Happy Halloween Kirby!

  2. Love those pork chops! This all makes me giddy and I don't even have any little kids any more. Thank goodness you're showing CB instead of NOES! ;)

  3. Don't you just love these. I make a version of this with sliced potatoes cooked right underneath the chops. A nice and easy one pan meal.

  4. Looks delicious!I'd just roast some pork ribs for dinner, bet my boys would love this more!

  5. Oh my that looks delicious. We only had one kid come to the house last night for candy. It would have been a lot easier if the holiday were on a Saturday.
