Fall Musings...

Courtesy of Flickr- on our Pinterest 

I had just gotten the porch finished up with some pretty fall pumpkins and leaves when Buddy just didn't have another ounce of energy... He wandered off and plopped down behind a chair.  I had to snap his photo.  He says Happy Fall !

OUR Sweet Bones - aka Buddy 

This is the time of year that I simply ADORE !  Leaves starting to turn in a few places, 
more deer venturing out to munch in our pasture, coffee in the morning that we can actually enjoy because it's a little cooler.. and of course the wonderful recipes that remind us the holidays are nearing. I hope you enjoy your week- and this recipe.

This absolutely divine pork dish is one of the simplest of evening meals and worth all three steps !
Enjoy the smell of Thanksgiving any day you decide to whip this dish up for your friends or family. While staying with our friends in Houston, awaiting meetings with the doctor on Monday our hostess delighted us all with this wonderful recipe.

Elegant Pork chops with Apple


 Boneless Pork  -  4- 6  chops small cut into about  2 ” strips
1 box of stuffing mix- adding your favorite ingredients like celery, onion, nuts etc.
1 can or jar of prepared apple pie filling ( Comstock )


Using an 8 x 10 glass dish, open and spread out the pie filling on the bottom
of the dish.
Brown the pork chops on both sides, salt & pepper for seasoning, then set aside. 
Prepare stuffing mix- keeping a little more moist than usual.
Layer on top  of the pie filling- the pork chops , then the stuffing on top of pork strips. 
Drizzle a little butter on top for extra crispy stuffing if you like.


Bake in 350 degree oven for approx. 50 min. to one hour - until
pork and top of stuffing is browned and crispy
in places. * Should be tender to cut.

I have to tell you, your family and or friends will gush over this recipe !  You will be the hero of the day ( or week ) and the house will smell like thanksgiving - a little early.  And.. you won't have to call the family twice when you prepare this. Try it with roasted cauliflower , peas, or a side salad.  Enjoy !

Till next time-
