Well so far I have done it & stuck to my plan getting to the gym in the mornings (tues/thurs/fri) && let me tell you my energy yesterday was high & happy! No afternoon sleepiness!!! Good Bye Rut & hello early mornings *wave byeeee*
Today I wanted to share a recipe with you that I made last week. I decided to try and make some Crockpot Turkey Sloppy Joe’s. I had been talking to a patient about recipes as she was getting ready to go out of town. She told me she was going to prepare some sloppy joe’s for her family and MAN did it get me craving some myself.
I was not a huge sloppy joe fan when I was a kid, I mean I like them but they weren’t my favorite. I remember eating more than one serving but always topping it with cheese & mustard. I decided I wanted to try and make this Manwich classic my own and use my crockpot too!
So I did some researching on different blogs both vegetarian & turkey sloppy joe’s, and after a bit of searching I decided to combine two recipes to make mine.
SO….. I tossed everything in the crockpot & it looks good immediately, but then I thought hmmmm that looks a bit dry, so logically I added 28oz of water…. well instead of sloppy joe’s we got delicious turkey-lentil chili.
We enjoyed this the first night with a side of GRILLED CHEESE!! yummm I haven’t had a grilled cheese in forever & the chili was a great comfort food addition to the meal. THEN I had it again for lunch on Saturday with the addition of some mozzarella cheese && for dinner on saturday… BUT for dinner I cooked up some whole wheat noodles, added some extra jalapeños & used the chili creation as the meat sauce it was WONDERFUL!!!
Although I didn’t get my sloppy joe I was completely satisfied with this chili creation especially with the cold weather it was perfect to warm up with after a long day!
I’d Love To Know ~~ Are you a sloppy joe fan? Have you ever had a meal with an identity crisis?
