Baseball Beef Stew

This was one of my Twitter posts this week.

Can I just tell you how great that beef stew tasted!  For those of you who are not enduring a very cold spring, then you may not be able to fully understand the depth of this bone freezing cold that has penetrated this area!  It may look nice out, flowers blooming, grass greening up,  but I can assure you it does not feel anywhere near spring when you are standing at a ballgame for over 2 hours!  Saw this on our local weather forecast.


Geez 1983!!!!!!  I was just out of high school….so yes it’s been a long time since it has been this cold!  (And really don’t feel the need to let me know you weren’t even born in 1983 or you were in kindergarten then!)

And since we may have a few more days of this cold I thought I would share my fave beef stew recipe.  See at Jesus and Dark Chocolate you can get more than just biblical insight, stories of dealing with Early Onset Alzheimer’s, family moments to share……you also get cool recipes!! 🙂

Baseball Beef Stew for the Crock Pot

Throw ( that is baseball lingo for carefully place) the following items in your crock pot:

  • 4-5 med potatoes cut into quarters
  • As many petite carrots you think your kids will eat
  • 1 -2 stalks of celery chopped and cut
  • As much chopped red onion as you like ( I use about 1/4 of a medium onion)
  • 1 can of tomato soup
  • 2 cans of water
  • 3 packets of beef broth granules ( or 2 cans of beef broth, then eliminate the cans of water)
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 lbs of beef stewing cubes

Heat on low for 7-8 hours.

E.A.S.Y and delicious!

~Enjoy with fresh bread or biscuits

Hoping for warmer weather next week!  Ready to grill on a regular basis!

Play Ball!


  1. Um…I hate to break it to you but, I had snow in Ohio yesterday. I saw on the forecast today that the snow is heading your way tomorrow. Sorry about that….I’m looking forward to REAL Spring weather.
    Stay warm, friend:)

  2. Just a couple of days ago we had record high of 103 in one part of the state and snowing in another part! It was about 80 in my area. It’s cooled a bit since then. ~ I wanted to let you know I’m still thinking about you and praying for you and also let you know that we did get a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s for my father. What was unexpected was that my mother was diagnosed with Parkinson’s on the same day! ~ Where would we be without the strength that only God can provide. I’m praying for eagles wings! ~ Have a great weekend!

  3. And Jesus wept

    A Prayer From Jesus

    Jesus I brought this prayer to your people and they rejected it. So I added a comment on the importance of this prayer and your plan of Salvation, again no responses. Finally with fire and brimstone, mentioned their destination, it was as if they could not even hear.

    Jesus am I to be a profit as unto Jeremiah or like unto Jonah. I fell like Jonah, no matter what I want to do, You all ways command me to do this small task, deliver Your prayer. Except the results are as unto Jermiah. When not one obeyed when You said, they will find safety out of the city.

    Jesus, you created me as neither but one of power, in Jesus NAME. Devil in the NAME of JESUS I bind you in Jesus name. Release your hold on those who will be called, son’s of Jesus. I command you in JESUS NAME to be gone from all who read this post, in Jesus Name. For the glory is yours alone Jesus. I lift your Name up in Praise now, Lord Jesus. Open my eyes in Jesus Name and let me receive from You, this very hour in JESUS NAME.

    This prayer is from Jesus that we may hear from Him, that He may speak to our hearts. It only consist of three simple steps.

    1, We need to read one scripture. This will focus us in the word that brings everlasting life.

    2, Since this prayer is from Jesus we need to direct our prayer to Him personally. Too often Christian focuses they’re prayer’s to G_D or Father. Scripture proclaims, that Jesus should be the focus of our prayer.

    3, The simplest part of this Prayer is to ask Jesus one question. Please, all that is required for this question is that it should be simple. Let Jesus Himself finish the question when He gives you that understanding through this prayer.

    The PRAYER

    A) The scripture that is the focus of this prayer is “ACTS 2:38”. It’s not necessary to do any study into this scripture. Jesus will give you the understanding that will resonate in your heart. Just read Acts 2:38, keep it in your heart and take this one scripture to prayer

    B) The most important part of this prayer is that we need to direct our prayer directly to Jesus. If you normally would say Father in your prayer, change your focus from the Father to Jesus, by lifting Jesus name up every time you would normally use Father in your prayer.

    C) Maybe the hardest part of this prayer is the question that we need to ask Jesus. For man is always trying to understand the question, instead of listening to the answer. The simplest question is all that is required.
    Simply ask Jesus, ‘WHY’?

    For those who are obedient
