So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9

Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished! Luke 1:45

Monday's Menu

Sloppy Joes. Slop... Sloppy Joes.

That's all I know of that song. Sorry.

Usually when we want sloppy joes, I buy a can of Manwich. In a pinch, we mix in barbecue sauce with cooked ground beef.

But the other day, we wanted sloppy joes. Alas, I had neither a can of Manwich or barbecue sauce. I did, however, have a cookbook. My handy dandy Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. And I must say they turned out rather well.

By the way, I highly recommend buttering and toasting the buns before serving. Yum-mee! Plus it keeps them from turning into soppy joes (with wet buns) quite so quickly.

Sloppy Joes

1 lb. ground beef or pork
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper (we omitted this)
1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
2 Tablespoons water
1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder (use a smaller amount and make sure its blended well)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
dash hot pepper sauce (also omitted this)
6 kaiser rolls or hamburger buns

In a large skillet, cook beef/pork, onion, and sweet pepper until browned and vegetables are tender. Drain fat. Stir in tomato sauce, water, chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt, and hot pepper sauce. Blend well and bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes. Serve on toasted rolls or buns.

We call them "untidy Josephs". Recipe sounds good. Carol
