So we had a blast and we actually got something accomplished besides. It was great to listen to the kids raise the roof upstairs, too. All this and everyone was done in time for dinner.
I had some ground venison thawed, so I decided (at Pappa D's request) to make some sloppy joes. He asked me to pick up a mix (since he planned to do it himself) but I declined since I have a FABULOUS recipe that I'm going to share with you instead. This recipe is a sweet version of sloppy joes that we usually call Barbie Q (can you tell I have all girls?)
- 1 lb of ground beef (or venison, pork, chicken, turkey, etc)
- 1/2 onion, finely chopped (I don't always have onion on hand, but I DO always add a scoop (Tbsp) of Grandma's Sunday Roast Seasoning and then the onion is actually superfluous)
- 8 oz ketchup
- 1 1/2 tsp mustard
- 1 1/2 tsp vinegar
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 1/4 c water
- 1/2 tsp salt (which is not really necessary when you add the Sunday Roast Seasoning - maybe a dash at most)
- 1/8 tsp pepper
- 1/8 tsp paprika
Enjoy! And feel free to share your version! Off to eat my leftover Barbie Q...
