Sloppy Joes

So this seems like a right of passage if you are kid, you need to eat a sloppy joe. Well I am planning to make it for dinner. In fact, I have everything cut up ready to go down the the garlic smelly fingers. But am I doing it on the buns, nope... I am planning for it to go on rice so that if it is sloppy it is in a bowl. Yes, I await the applause now....

I am just feeling the rice for dinner vibe tonight. We did sandwiches last night so here is hoping this recipe goes over well since they barely ate last night.

Well that was a big hit. Maggie and Max had at least two helpings. Maggie felt that the rice was just for decoration to show off the redness of the sloppy joe. Max gobbled that down, some leftover fried rice, some leftover sweet potatoes that had too much pepper and at some fruit. I call that a successful dinner especially since Maggie had it dribbling down her naked belly.

What did you say? Why was she nakey? She was playing in the water and stripped herself of her wet clothes. Feeling confident in herself, she decided to keep the birthday suit for dinner and be formal.

So my pictures are of the leftovers. I made ground turkey joes and used whatever amount comes in the prepacked servings. I figured they would like it but I didn't realize what a hit it would be. Here is the link for the recipe. http://www.elise.com/recipes/archives/007320sloppy_joes.php It was yummylicious.

This second picture is just to give you the scope of how little was left. The green tupperware is rice.


  1. Mmmm!!!

    BTW, Kenzie eats in nothing but a diaper on Spaghetti night!

  2. If they were such a hit, I amy have to try them out on Michael. I will say that I'm not a big fan of sloppy joes. However, it may have something to do with the fact that my mom used to tell me they were named after me : 0

  3. You are so smart! I love the idea of sloppy joes on rice. I know I'm a mom of two but I still have trouble dealing with all the mess.
