Pork Chops in Creamy Mushroom Sauce

The days are just passing by so fast! I can't believe it's Friday again...which only means that the weekend is here. Before I get totally carried away by the wonderful thoughts of weekend, let me first share with you this recipe that's sure to please the meat and potato lover in you!
This is simply made of browned potatoes and seasoned pork chops simmered in cream of mushroom soup. This is very easy to put together but the result is very tasty! If you are like us who don't dine out on Valentine's Day if it falls on a weekday, you can make this a part of the lovely three or four course dinner that you'll prepare for your family.

Have a fantastic Friday and a wonderful weekend everyone! No matter what you might be doing, I hope you will enjoy...
