After practically eating the entire pot of sloppy joe's, I realized I can't make my mom's traditional recipe any more. It's just too good and once I start I can't stop! It needs to be under lock and key!
Compared to two pounds of hamburger, turkey and beans is a little healthier. You could even swap out the turkey for ground chicken or beef, or two more cans of beans. For three days straight this was my dinner and it was the best meal of my life.
Recently dinner at our house has been a "fend-for-yourself" meal. Between work, gymnastics, basketball, games, etc. everyone is home at different times on different days. Friday's are really the only days we're all together. Last Friday we decided to all watch a movie together. If you haven't seen When the Game Stands Tall, I recommend renting it. Here's Amazons summary...
Inspired by the true story, Jim Caviezel plays high school football coach Bob Ladouceur during the season that changed everything. As coach of the Spartans Football Team, Bob always tells his players that winning doesn't matter. Yet somehow, with the aid of assistant coach Terry Eidson, he’s led the team to a record-breaking 151 straight victories. When his wife Bev urges him to refocus on his family, Bob is blinded by the pressure to keep the streak alive. Now, in the midst of a season of crisis and tragedy when the Spartans stand to lose everything, a remarkable young player helps Bob rediscover that teamwork outshines personal glory When The Game Stands Tall.
