Pork Chop Stew (Crockpot Recipe)


We don’t have any snow in Dallas to help get us in the Christmas Spirit; but for me there is one event that starts my Christmas Season off right.  For the last seven years, our church has sponsored a community nativity event that is absolutely incredible.  We display over 700 nativities and couple the event with local musical performances.  So the week between Thanksgiving and the first weekend in December I spend helping to set up this incredible event.  It is sooo much work, but it is truly a labor of love and the end result is sooo worth
