Using a large stock pot, brown a large “roll of hamburger” from the Walmart.  For smaller parties, smaller rolls.  Throw in some minced garlic (I keep minced garlic in a jar in the fridge), one small yellow onion and a ton of the “Italian Spices” (ie rosemary, oregano, thyme – any/all/or the jar marked Italian spices which is []

Old Journal Entries 2016-12-17
