Take this recipe and play with the proportions.  There is no reason that you have to use the same amount of everything (vegetable and meat wise).  I like to load up on the veggies so I lean more toward that.  I would have more celery but Casey doesn’t like it so I have to sneak it in.  Use this recipe as a base, then make it how you like it.
