I can't look at a sloppy joe without hearing Adam Sandler singing about the lunch lady. Last night we had sloppy joes, sloppy, sloppy joes. I know you don't care, I just thought I'd share how quick and easy it was. I may be the queen of lazy cooks, but I know I'm not the only one.
We had spaghetti one night this week, just Mitch and I. Remember, our nest recently became empty. I haven't quite adjusted to cooking for just the two of us. The term serving size takes on a whole new meaning when you're cooking for a teenage boy. Anyway, I made way too much sauce. Not usually a problem, since I happen to love left-over spaghetti. This time, my sauce/noodle ratio was off, leaving me with no noodles and an excess of sauce. I know, spaghetti sauce freezes well and I could have done that. Instead, I squeezed another meal for this week out of it. A meal that involved little more than reheating, my favorite kind of cooking. To the left-over meat sauce I added, some brown sugar, spicy brown mustard, and a little Worcestershire sauce. Throw it on a bun, open a can of green beans and you've got dinner. Not a great dinner, but dinner, and folks around here are perfectly happy with any dinner.
