Another Castle And A Yummy Recipe Too

The weather here yesterday was off the charts on both ends I think. We walked to school yesterday morning in the FREEZING subzero temps. Yeah, right, there's more to come I know. And it ended up being around 80 degrees by the time Neeley got home from school. Ronnie was off yesterday and it was so beautiful outside by the time that she got home that I just couldn't let us all sit inside for the entire afternoon. Since I had Colorado Green Chile in the crock pot and didn't have to hover around a stove all afternoon, we decided to take a lil trip to Schloss Solitude, better known as Castle Solitude or Solitude Palace. We took the guided tour and I must say it was breathtaking. We couldn't take any pictures in some of the rooms but you know we were snapping away at what we could.

Enjoy the pics of our fun afternoon . . .

Oh wait, before you see the castle...look! This is what Roto Rooter looks like in Germany. Haha!

He thinks he's cool . . .

And just because I think you should make this yummy concoction for you and your family, here is the recipe to our Colorado Green Chile. Oh so yummy!

Colorado Green Chile

2 1/2 lb. pork steak or pork chops, diced and fat trimmed (I use thinly sliced boneless pork chops)
21 oz. diced green chiles
1 can diced jalapenos (I omit these because Neeley wouldn't eat it otherwise)
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. oregano
Salt & pepper to taste
3/4 c. flour
3 cans chicken broth
1 can cream of chicken soup

Combine first seven ingredients in crock pot on low. In a mixing bowl, combine, the flour, chicken broth, and chicken soup. Mix well with a whisk to avoid lumping and add to pork mixture. Stir. Cook for 3 hours until pork is cooked through. Serve with flour tortillas, fresh avocado, grated cheese, sour cream, and fresh tomatoes.

Let me know what you think if you make it...
