The weekend has been a busy one for sure. Started off Saturday with a trip to camp to celebrate a birthday party for Hadley, Olin and Levi. We weren’t able to stay long due to Colton having a baseball game and me having to get ready for prom pictures. Tanner looked so handsome and Savannah looked so gorgeous in her dress. Then, our Sunday consisted of making a trip to the flea market to shop around and to the grocery store for our bi weekly shopping spree. The menu tonight involved Sloppy Joes with Potato Wedges, and boy did they turn out good.

I have always picked up the cans of sloppy joe mix but today I decided to make it homemade. Why I have never done this is beyond me. It really is easy and so much better due to the fact you can add whatever spices you want to it. If you could see my spice cabinet, you would think I’m one crazy woman with all the spices. I have just about anything and everything ever needed for a recipe. 🙂 The more the better is how I see it.

Sloppy Joes

After taking the picture of all the ingredients I was going to use, I had noticed that I had fresh garlic in the bin so that’s the only thing I used differently then what I have in the picture. If you don’t have fresh garlic, garlic powder will work just as fine.

Sloppy Joes

Brown hamburger and drain off all fat. Add green peppers, onions, minced garlic, salt and pepper.

Once peppers and onions are tender, add your spices, tomato paste and water. Let simmer for 10 minutes or so.

Toast your sesame buns or whatever hamburger buns you prefer. Don’t forget to butter them up so they don’t stick to your skillet.

For a side dish I sliced up about 6 russet potatoes into wedges, dredged them with oil olive and seasoned them with salt and pepper. Baked in the oven on 450 degree for 30 minutes.  As you can tell in the picture, there may be a little bit of melted cheese added to the sloppy joe. Yep there sure is, the hubby and I love to add Cheez Whiz to our Sloppy Joes, cheese makes everything better.
