In the last few years, since cooking has fallen on my shoulders, I find myself looking for the easy peasy recipes for weeknights.
I usually save fancy stuff for weekends.
Well, today while I was watching Food Network, I saw an interesting take on sloppy joes. It was on The Pioneer Woman.
Can I just say, I really do not like Ree Drummond.
When ever she says she has to have her recipes approved by hungry cowboys, kids and her...I want to say, try to find recipes that will be approved by hungry old people and a finicky twenty something that works in food service.
No joke, my youngest nephew won't come over for dinner if we order out.
But back to The Pioneer Woman. She was doing multiple recipes that used her meat sauce. One of them was the Italian Sloppy Joes. I am not one to make my own sauce.
I liked the concept, but it just isn't easy enough.
I think when I make my version of Italian Sloppy Joes I think I'll use this one
Because I like meals that are easy and different. (And don't require me using the broiler)
Grandma would have been 108 today. I know that's an age most people don't live to see, but she was spunky. She made it to 101. Not bad. And she had a good long life, filled with many people that loved her.
I still miss her so much.
I hope she's having a nice time with my daddy today in heaven. I know she has most of her family with her now.
My nephew told me that our local PBS station was airing the Justin Hayward special tonight.
It has been ages since I've listened to him, let alone watched anything like that.
It really is beautiful video and it gives the world a chance to see that he still has an incredible voice.
I had to draw comparisons to Paul McCartney as I watched. Justin is 4 years younger than Paul, but he sounds 100 times better. As much as I like Macca, his recent performances leave me wishing he'd retire.
I loved hearing the new songs live, since I wasn't able to see him in concert when he came to Pittsburgh, and likely won't be able to see him again ever, as life has made seeing concerts pretty much impossible. But more than the new songs, it was hearing New Horizons, Your Wildest Dreams and, of course, Question live.
If you have a chance you have to watch this video.
