The past week or so I have been in a rather down mood. Sitting on the couch after work one day recently I was giving serious consideration to cancelling our annual carol sing event etc. Today I remembered that I had ground beef in the fridge that would be wasted if I didn’t use it up. I fried it up and added the fruit and spices that my husband had picked up for me. As it started to cook up, I found myself tapping my toe and whistling a Christmas carol. This is the recipe I was cooking!
