Crockpot Ranch Pork Chops

I've been making this dish for a long time. It is SO easy and very yummy and only has a few ingredients!  The other day at the grocery store my timing was just right with the meat department guy and he was putting out newly marked down meat and I grabbed the porch chops for next to nothing....I love when that happens!  This dish makes a wonderful gravy that you have to serve over mashed potatoes, or rice.
Crockpot Ranch Pork Chops
4-6 pork chops
1pkg ranch dressing mix
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of celery soup, (or any combo of two cans)
Spray the inside of the crockpot with nonstick cooking spray and place the pork chops inside. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and the ranch seasoning package.  Put the soups on top. Cover and cook on low 4-6 hours. Serve the pork chops with mashed potatoes and use the leftover sauce/gravy to put on top! You could easily add carrots to this dish too.

Snickers Apple Salad

There are many recipes out there for this salad, but I thought how convenient it would be to use up some of that leftover Halloween candy! I forgot about this recipe until I needed to make something for a potluck and didn't know what to bring....sometimes that happens when a person has toooooo many recipes! LOL  I realized I had all the ingredients on hand and it used up some Halloween candy too! The recipe calls for snickers, but you could use any chocolate candy bar. Enjoy!
Snickers Apple Salad
3 tart apples, like granny smith, peel,core, chop small
3 full size candy bars, like snickers, chop fine (can also use the mini candy bars, like 9)
1 (8oz)tub cool whip...I use light  (you need every bit of help on this recipe, right?!)
1 or 2 small packages of instant vanilla pudding
I like to chop up the candy first and place it in the freezer while doing the rest of the salad. Mix cool whip and pudding together and then add the chopped apple and then the candy bar pieces. Stir well. Refrigerate for a good hour or two before serving. I was afraid the apples would turn brown before leaving for the potluck, but they did fine and they were even good the next day! Since I was bringing this to a potluck I doubled the cool whip amount and it worked great.
