What have you been up to this summer??? Planting or gardening? Watching evening baseball games? Biking to the farmer's market? Swimming at the lake? Grilling? That is just a few of my favorite summer things in MN....and happily taking up our time.
This meal is fast, filling, savory and healthy. This recipe is a mix of loose meat, Sloppy Joe's and S.O.S. Not using any flavor packets, preservatives or cheaply filled jars of over priced food here! Real food, real healthy and real good. We served ours over toasted Sourdough bread with a slice of pepper jack cheese under the meat. Making for awesome and easy leftovers for lunch the next day. Nothing super fancy, just good, nutritious food.
