Tuesday Sloppy Joes 07.23.2013
Ladies and gentlemen, I am supremely exhausted today. After I brought my son home from karate (which he thinks is three instructors existing to entertain him and not an opportunity for him to learn a skill), my husband laid out a dinner of sloppy Joes, sweet potato tater tots, and raw vegetables. It was fantastic, especially the sloppy Joes.
He looked up a sloppy Joe recipe on Epicurious, but only had some of the ingredients on hand. This does not deter him. I on the other hand would have either run out to the grocery to get the missing ingredients, or immediately changed the menu: in the kitchen, I am a scaredy cat.
Eric whipped up the sloppy Joes with ground beef we did not use the other night for hamburgers, mixed in with a bunch of diced carrots, celery, onions, and garlic.
We had tomato paste and Worcestershire sauce, and he made his own tomato sauce. The Worcestershire sauce, I think, is key. We did not have halapeno and it was unnecessary. Delicious. And so incredibly appreciated by an exhausted woman.
Happy eating all!
