Beef Stew

First of all, this dumb thing keeps double spacing and wont let me single space! Whats the deal?! BAH! And I just posted pictures of my Easter decor and mantle on my family/mama blog if you're interested!

Chunky Beef Stew

1 can diced tomatoes (don't drain. I blend it in a food processor)

1 cup water

3 TB quick cooking tapioca (stick with me here!)

2 ts. Sugar

1 ½ ts. Salt

½ ts. Pepper

2 pounds lean beef stew meat (I bought a package of pre cut beef stew meat. Cut yours in chunks if not already cut up)

4 medium carrots (cut into chunks)

3 medium potatoes; chunks

2 celery ribs; chunks (optional)

1 medium; onion

1 slice bread; cubed

½ can chicken broth

In a large bowl; combine tomates, water, tapioca, sugar, salt and pepper. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Pour into a greased baking pan. Cover and bake at 375 for 1 ½-2 hours (2 hours for more tender meat and veggies). Serve in bowls.

Apple Ginger Pork Chops

*This is not my picture. I have a fabulous camera, but I always get busy in the kitchen and forget to take pictures!

I posted this recipe a long time ago, but I"m reposting since I've made some new foodie friends :)

Do NOT make this if you dont like apple pie! Because its pretty much apple pie made into an entre! Everybody in my family loved it. My kids don't like the apple chunks, so I blend the apple pie mixture.

Apple Ginger Pork Chops

What you'll need:

4-6 pork chops (not super thick ones)

1 can apple pie filling

1 TBL oil

1 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

2 TBL cornstarch

2 cups apple juice

12 ginersnap cookies; crumbled

What to do:

1.Sprinkle each pork chop with salt and pepper, and brown in hot oil in a skillet. Remove pork chops from heat, and place in casserole pan.

2. Combine the pie filling and crumbled ginersnaps

3. Spoon small amout of filling on top of each pork chop.

4. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes

5. Meanwhile; Combine cornstarch and apple juice until smooth on the stovetop. Add left over pie filling mixture (so dont use all of it on top of the pork chops!) Bring to a boil and stir until thickened.

6. Poor over pork chops and serve.
