A Big Santa & Mom's Taste Like Chicken Chops

We had a wonderful Sunday here and a pleasant weekend too. Friday and Saturday Dad and I worked on the foundation for the house. Lord willing we will have the foundation done next week and we will be ready to build! I am so excited! I started working on this Santa Saturday night and boy was he ever a challenge. He is huge and stands over three feet tall. I kept having issues with he wanting to lean forward instead of standing straight up. He wanted to be a lazy Santa and slump over. I finally corrected the problem by adding more weight to his feet by adding rags down in them. After church today I sewed on his beard and added his accessories. I used hubby's old belt on him and made him a toy sack. Seems like he still needs something? What do you guys think? I fixed my Mama's Taste Like Chicken Chops for supper tonight and they sure were yummy! Hope you enjoy the recipe.

Taste Like Chicken Chops
4-6 pork chops
1 can of cream of chicken
Wash your pork chops and pat dry. Roll in flour and shake off the excess. Place some oil in a skillet and fry your chops until brown on both sides. Place in a crock pot. Mix your can of cream of chicken with 1/3 cup of water and pour over chops. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or until pork chops are fall apart tender. It makes a yummy gravy :)
