I know that this is off-topic, but I want to share with you what I love doing once a week on Wednesday nights. 

In the early fall of last year, I started volunteering for the special needs ministry at my church. I love volunteering for the department because I have a huge heart for kids who have special needs. I too always have fun playing and interacting with the children. They are so adorable and funny.

However, I, unfortunately, can't be at two places at once; church and at home to cook dinner. Which is why I love having Wednesdays as my slow cooker/crockpot day. There's little or no labor, and the only thing I have to do is throw everything into my crockpot and let it do the cooking. And then bam I have a delicious hot meal waiting for me at home. It's really nice to have somewhat of a break from doing all of the cooking at least once a week.

On my crockpot day, I threw together this Peach Glazed Pork Chops recipe. My family love these because they have a touch of sweetness and I especially loved them because...well they are a little sweet. And a little savory with browned butter. Yum, yum!! :D  Just an excellent combo for everyone in the family! 

Do you have a crockpot/slow cooker day? What do you usually prefer to toss into your crockpot? 


Slow Cooker Peach Glazed Pork Chops

Ingredients

4-6 boneless pork chops (about 1.5 lb)
6 Tbsp butter
¾ C peach preserves (Sugar-Free)
½ tsp thyme
½ teaspoon salt
1/2 tsp pepper 

Instructions

In a medium skillet over medium-high heat melt the butter and occasionally whisk until it starts to bubble. Continue whisking until it just starts to develop little brown bits, combine seasonings and then remove from the heat. Continue to whisk and let it cool for one-two minutes. Stir in the preserves until smooth (There might be little chunks of fruit from the preserves) Place chops into your crockpot and pour sauce over them. Cover and cook on low for six-seven hours or high for three-four hours. 

Notes

I cooked these on low in my 4-quart crockpot for six hours
