Ally's Firecracker Sloppy Joes

Earlier this week I mentioned the husband wanted to go shopping...we did find some great bargains for him at Dick's Sporting Goods and Kohl's!! We did also purchase.............a new camera :D
Today has been a day of laundry, packing for our China trip, Smokey and The Bandit ( classic :D ), playing with my new camera and catching up on ordering wedding pictures.

Ya, I know, I am totally rambling but at this point looking away from the craziness in the house is kind of nice. Not to mention, it has been raining cats and dogs all day! Perfect inside day!!

I am borrowing a good friends recipe tonight. It is however, slightly modified due to lack of groceries in the house...


Simmering meat and smells permeating the house...


Ally's Firecracker Sloppy Joes

2 lbs. ground beef
1 celery rib, finely diced
1 carrot, finely diced
1 small onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
1/2 c. chicken broth
1/4 c. hot sauce
1/2 c. ketchup
3 T. brown sugar
2 T. red wine vinegar
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
salt/pepper

In a large pan, cook the ground beef, celery, carrot, onion and clove. Drain off fat and stir in remaining ingredients. Simmer on low for 30 minutes. I did forget to add cheese but I am sure it would taste great! Serve on buns.

Yep, it is definitely this easy!!
