      Love these kinds of recipes. Makes cooking so easy to do or planning quick menues a snap to figure out. Thanks for the post.

      I agree Janice, this will really make it easy to have food fast on those crazy nights that we have to run run run.
      Thanks mos for sharing! Your recipes are always so original and right on the mark for what I am looking for 🙂

      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.

      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;-)!
