    The recipes are even faster if you have pre-cooked the ground beef and frozen it for the future. When you are in the mood, all that is required is a quick defrost in the microwave.
    I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.

    thanks Kim! McNerd is right about the pre-cooked frozen beef...much faster! they do make good gifts and two years ago, a friend was having the worst luck around the holidays so I gave one to her and her DH with a gift certificate to Food Lion -- the grocery store that they usually shopped at. they said it was the best gift anyone could have given them that year (besides giving the DH a job and paying the daughter's medical expenses;-\)!
