My husband had to leave unexpectedly this morning to drive to Arkansas to get his mother and bring her here (another blog story for later) and my daughter now has an apartment with two friends, so my son and I are alone this weekend. I have several hours of work to do over the course of the weekend plus get a bedroom ready for my mother-in-law, and my son has a paper to write and more homework, so we opted for a simple supper. We thought about ordering pizza, but I pinned a new recipe on Pinterest a few weeks ago and have been wanting to try it out. Nothing fancy, just sloppy joes, but homemade. Here is supper ...
Click HERE for the recipe. The only ingredient I did not have was dry ground mustard and my son picked that up this morning. It is very good and I can definitely see it being on the menu for the next football gathering at my house. It is a little sweet for my taste, so the next time I make it I will leave off the brown sugar and will add a little garlic and probably some diced jalapeno. I have very specific tastes for sweet and savory, usually not together. If you love sweet chili or spaghetti sauce, better not plan on supper at my house because you will not find it here. If I want something sweet, I will go get a Milky Way bar or Hershey bar or something equally sugary. I started to leave the brown sugar out this first time I made it, but the recipe has over 600 reviews and 5 stars, so I felt like I should give it a chance as written before starting to make changes.
On a totally different note, here is a view of the beautiful Kentucky sky from my front porch this evening.
Hope ya'll are having a wonderful weekend!
