I have to say that this is a wonderful recipe, even when you mess it all up! If you have the basics, it will still be great. Here's my story: I started off with 4 red potatoes (I kept the good looking parts of the skin on) and several small home-grown carrots (but these turned out to be too few--my husband even said "Oh! Are there carrots in here?!"). I almost added some celery, but I found it to be too limp so I skipped it. But it probably would have added a nice dimension. I was also out of onion, so I used some garlic powder and (my personal all-time favorite) Mrs. Dash to help compensate for the loss. I used Olive Oil because it was on hand and I used turkey instead of ground beef--at the last minute. I had purchased ground beef just for this dish, but when I took it out of the fridge, it was a scary color of brown. I wasn't going to risk giving my family food poisoning! So I defrosted some ground turkey and saved the day. This is now a family favorite! I'm sure it will be great the next time I make it the right way--although I'll keep the garlic and Mrs. Dash--but for now, I can't wait for leftovers tonight!
(I just had to come back and say that I made this again with beef, celery, plenty of carrots and an onion and it was just as wonderful. Now I have to try to keep from making it every week. It's very filling and makes for lots of leftovers which is something I like in our house--less cooking and lots of lunches! We love it! Thanks!)
