I need some recipes that use ground beef and don't have any tomato or tomato products in the recipe. Would love to have recipes that could be cooked in a crockpot.

Baked Lemon Sole Recipe

2 cups water
1 cup bread crumbs
2 pounds sole fillets
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup lemon juice
dash salt
fresh pepper
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
4 lemon wedges

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Place bread crumbs in a small bowl and roll each fish in the crumbs so both sides are covered. Pour water into a shallow baking pan. Place the fish skin side down in the pan. Brush the fish with the melted butter. Bake for 7 to 20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets. If really thin then check for doneness after 3 minutes. If the fish hasn't darkened in color you can broil it for about 40 seconds. Don't overcook though. Use a spatula and place each piece of fish on a plate. Pour any juices from the pan over the fish. Sprinkle the fish with lemon juice, salt, white pepper and chopped parsley. Garnish with lemon wedges.
Serves 4.

Ditto and Little One are were really glad to see me come home from Arizona the last of April. I was only gone for 4 days.  Both Ditto and Little One acted like I left them or a month or longer. They were excited to see me backc. The only problem with leaving them at home is Little One thinks rules no longer exist. I have to remind him that No means NO.  It takes him several days to a week for him to remember who is the master and who is the cat. The first time I said no to him after I got back he tried to bite my finger. I was pointing my finger at him and he did not want to mind so he tried to bite it. The good thing about when he tries to bite he doesn't break the skin.  After a few days and an attitude adjustment, things are back to normal.  Little One knows the word, No and minds me. 

Ditto is a really good cat.  He doesn't get into anything and doesn't cause any problems.  Once in a while he gets tired of Little One picking on him.  He usually tricks Little One to get him in the closet then closes the door on him.  For several days after that Little One doesn't bother Ditto at all.  Little One walks very carefully around Ditto and gives him ugly looks as he walks by.
