Just to put you in the mood to vote tomorrow. ..try watching this fabulous Frank Capra film! It's a favorite around here!

Christmas Fairies...

Isn't this winter fairy dress from Chasing Fireflies... just a dream? Sooo pretty! These dresses remind me of Jackie Kennedy's beautiful wedding dress. I've seen a lot of these applied ruffles or ribbon details lately. I love it, it's so feminine!

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the King's Singers...

I was thrilled to see this in Deseret Book on Saturday. I've been waiting for it. I have become a huge fan of the choir since they started making their own recordings and the sound is sooo much better. This CD will be one of your Christmas favorites... Yes, if you hate the Christmas posts.. you'll just have to stay away from this blog for awhile. C and I have a philosophy about Thanksgiving and Christmas it goes like this... What are you most thankful for??? CHRISTMAS!!!

Pork Chops and Brown Rice...

Sorry, I forgot to take a photo of this recipe... It's one of those Utah recipes with Cream of Mushroom soup, which I sometimes tire of... but it tasted good yesterday.

1 package thin lean pork chops (cut about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can french onion soup

Mix soups in small pot and place pork chops in the soup making sure they are covered... cook on 275 for about 4 hours or more until they are very tender.

Serve with brown rice, a side veggie and salad.
Recipe is easily doubled.
