I am not a cook nor do I try to say I can cook. I have written about this before and said i was going to make an effort this year to try harder to learn new dishes and get better at hanging out in the kitchen.
But, there is one thing I CAN make really really good..... Sloppy Joes! I just started following this simple recipe and I literally have family begging me to make it all the time. So last night, all our friends had off work so we had our first ever Sloppy Joe night!! We usually do rib night over at Val's but we decided to change it up and do my sloppy joes.
So here is what 10 lbs of Sloppy Joe and Wine Wednesday looks like.While the girls cooked, the boys play Wii. At least it keeps them out of the kitchen. It was nice to all be able to get together again with our busy schedules. It's rare that we get to do this. We ended up ending then night by the camp fire outside and it was the perfect night for a fire, it's been SO cold in Florida this week.
So now your wondering what this glorious recipe is huh? I mentioned last night that I might post it on the blog and they all cut me off saying "Noooooo! It's your recipe!!"
BUT, why not share a good thing?! So here ya go!!!
