Crockpot Pork Stew served over Mashed Potatoes

Yesterday was going to be my late night. My daughter joined Girl Scouts and her meetings run til 6:30 and it was easier for me to throw dinner together in the crockpot then have to make supper as soon as we got home. I am sure the husband and kids appreciated that logic — And it was COLD outside, too, so the warm stew was perfect to warm us up!

I originally was going to make a Beef Stew, but when I was looking for a package of Beef in the deep freezer, I noticed a package of the thin pork chops was punctured and decided to use that instead.
