Jill’s Simple Sloppy Supper
Have you ever had the urge to cook something you would normally never even think of cooking? We all have that one scary dish that was served in the junior high cafeteria that frightened the living day lights out of us. Last night, I cooked the one dish that I would of never thought of.
My scary dish was sloppy joes. Just the thought of the messy, mushy texture on top of the stale bun put a frown on my face when the lunch menu was announced. I settled for crackers and chocolate milk on sloppy joe days, but lets fast forward to today. Yesterday I was watching The Food Network like I usually do, and Tyler Florence was cooking a unique version of sloppy joes. It looked absolutely delicious. Instead of ground meat, he used ground turkey which gave it a healthy spin. I also made a homemade coleslaw to layer on top of the sloppy joe meat for a refreshing crunch.
This was one of the easiest meals I have ever cooked. It required only one pot and barely any clean up time. Not only was it delicious, it was quite filling. This is a perfect meal to cook with kids so they can get involved and inspired in the kitchen. I hope you try this recipe.
My very own homemade coleslaw:
Half a head of cabbage
2 cups shredded carrots
Equal parts red wine vinegar and olive oil
2 tsp Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper
Juice of 1 large lemon
Whisked the vinaigrette, pour and toss coleslaw. Enjoy!
