Fun Folds February and Recipe Monday #19

Today's Fun Fold is an easy card with a small twist of fun. The card I saw was by Leslie Parks and used the retired Heartfelt Thanks Stampin' Up! set. Leslie credits Jan McClurg on the back of the card.

This is the masculine or gender neutral birthday card offering for February 25th's Stamp A Stack.  It is a Fun Fold that has the full card portion mounted on a contrasting (in this card Chocolate Chip) base with a latch made using the main image layer tucked under a punched medallion (in this case the Birthday Bliss stamp).  I used Stampin' Up!'s pretty Frost White Shimmer Paint on top of the "frosting" for a little sparkle, but that is of course optional.

Recipe Monday #19
Crock Pot Pork Chops

8 thick pork chops, trimmed (boneless is best)
½ c flour
1 Tbsp salt
1 ½ tsp dry mustard
½ tsp garlic powder
2 cans of chicken and rice soup
Extra minute rice (optional)
Combine dry ingredients. Dredge pork chops in mixture. Brown pork chops on both sides. Drain. Place pork chops in crock-pot or slow cooker, and cover with soup. Add extra rice, if desired. Cook 3 ½ hours on high or all day on a lower setting (according to appliance manual).
Chops will be so tender they literally fall apart—it’s not the most attractive meal to serve guests, but it is easy for an ordinary meal.
