This is a very good hearty filling stew. The men in the family especially love it. You can substitute whatever ground meat you have on hand. This makes alot. If your family is small or your kettle is too small, you can easily cut recipe in half.

It was cold and snowy today so I needed soup. This is an old favorite and I decided the calories were worth it. But it's not that bad as long as you limit your serving size! I added millet for fiber

My family loves fried chicken, so when I saw something similar done on Biggest Loser, I had to try it. It's a great alternative to "fried" chicken.

My family loved this! It's my own low fat version of the chinese dish. I served it over rice and with frozen egg rolls. Kind of high in sugar....but low in fat. Hope you enjoy!
