Another Simple Country Meal
I've been doing menu planning by the seat of my pants this week! In other words, at the last minute. So far this week we've had the following meals:
Sunday: BBQ country style ribs, Au Gratin Potatoes, corn on the cob
Monday: Chicken Salad, rice cooked in broth
Tuesday: Sloppy Joes and Pinto Beans
We ate the Sloppy Joes in an open face sandwich style using plain bread. Of course these had to be eaten with a fork. :o)
Here's how I made them: I browned a pound of ground beef with a chopped green pepper and onion, and drained it. Then I added about a cup of ketchup, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, 1 tablespoon mustard, half a cup of bbq sauce, and salt and pepper to taste. I let this simmer for a few minutes.
The pinto bean side dish went great with the Sloppy Joes
For supper tonight? I don't know!! What are you having? I need some inspiration!
