Here's a recipe I learned on a week-end campout as a girl scout leader years ago. Because there are just 2 of us now, I use 1 lb of ground meat. I begin by browning onion, celery and sometimes a little green pepper if I have some around. After they are translucent, add the ground meat and cook until browned. With this amount of ground beef, I add 2 cans of tomato soup and THAT'S IT! I cook it for a short time just to let the flavors meld. Quick and simple and my husband loves it. I serve it over hamburger rolls or rice.

I've used cinnamon instead of allspice in ground meat dishes, and that's delicious, too.
