Stir Crazy

As the holiday season swings into high gear we can find ourselves overwhelmed with all that has to be done. 
Shopping, decorating, visiting, parties, baking, exams and more it can leave little time for other things.
This is a fast meal that can be whipped up in less than 30 minutes.  You can use beef if you wish but I chose ground turkey to keep it lean and light. 
Leftovers can be tucked into a wrap for lunch the next day.
