Savoury casserole chops ...

I found this recipe on Facebook recently. It is a slow cooker recipe but I did it in my Le Creuset dutch oven in 1 and a 1/2 hours. I dusted the chops (I had 8) with plain flour and browned them in the pot on the stove top, then poured the sauce over the chops, bringing it up to a boil then put the lid on and placed in the oven at 180C. I stirred it and flipped the chops over a couple of times and seasoned with salt and pepper too. Another thing I added, and you might find it strange, a handful of raisins or sultanas and .... a banana!  Once tender, we had them with mashed potato, carrots and peas. Delicious!
Nice comfort food after the chilly day we had - it got down to 10C at lunch time which is crazy seeing it is meant to be 32C on Sunday. No wonder everyone has the sniffles and flu.
This afternoon I will be busy making iced, pink sugar cookies (similar to those above) for a Breast Cancer Awareness fundraiser that my niece is having at her hairdressing salon. There is also a Girls Night In function being held in town but unfortunately I can't make that. Originally, a group of girls got together (about 15 I think) and had a night in someone's loungeroom, playing games and wearing pink and being silly - a few years later and it's grown into a function where about 150 ladies have a rollicking night out, raising $000's for the cause.
Isn't this rose stunning?  Its from my sister's garden...
Off to work now then the cookie factory will be in full swing this arvo!
Cheers - Joolz xx
