And we have to be at the ball park how many nights this week?

Ecclesiates 3: 1 - 8
There is a time for everything,
   and a season for every activity under the heavens:

 2 a time to be born and a time to die,
   a time to plant and a time to uproot,
 3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
   a time to tear down and a time to build,
 4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
   a time to mourn and a time to dance,
 5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
   a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
 6 a time to search and a time to give up,
   a time to keep and a time to throw away,
 7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
   a time to be silent and a time to speak,
 8 a time to love and a time to hate,
   a time for war and a time for peace.

Time is about to be a issue here in Macon.  We are about to be in ball season. It is a phenomenon.  It is a high priority here and we are at the ball park several times a week depending on how many children you have.  Here are some recipes that can help with ball park night.

Beef Tips and Gravy
Brown one package of stew meat in a skillet.  Put into a Crock Pot and cover with a large can of chicken broth and 1 chicken broth can of water.  Set the Crock Pot on low for about 6 to 8 hours.  When you are ready to serve, take a potato masher and break the stew meat into small pieces and mix up the gravy.  Serve over cooked rice, cooked noodles or my favorite mashed potatoes.  Don't have time for real mashed potatoes, try Ore Ida Cut Russet Potatoes in the frozen food section.  Follow package directions.

Taco Soup
Brown one pound ground beef and put into Crock Pot.  Add 1 package of taco seasoning mix, and one package of Ranch dressing mix, 1 can of Rotel tomatoes (you can decide how hot you want it), 2 small cans of corn, 1 can of pinto beans, 1 can of black beans, and 1 can of light red kidney beans (drain all cans of beans) and one carton of beef broth.  Set Crock Pot to low and cook for 6 to 8 hours.  Serve with corn bread, sour cream and shredded cheese.  I purchased a small Crock Pot and I use this recipe when friends are in need of a meal.  I can just put all the ingredients in a ziploc bag and deliver the Crock Pot.  They have a piping hot dinner ready when they want it.
