Inspired by Polly, I cooked sloppy joes for dinner last night. First, I threw together my seasonings based on this recipe.

1 TBSP minced onion

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp dry mustard

1/4 tsp chili powder

Dash red pepper flakes

1 tsp tapioca starch

1/2 tsp minced garlic

1/4 tsp celery seeds

I then browned 1 onion, 1 green bell pepper, and 1 pound grass fed finished beef in a skillet over medium high heat.

Once that was done, I mixed my seasonings with 1 and 1/4 cup water and added it to the meat along with a small can of tomato paste. I turned the heat down to low, and allowed everything to simmer for 10 minutes. Then for the secret ingredient…

I added 2 TBSP of Maranatha almond butter and removed our sloppy joe mix from the heat, allowing it to thicken while CD cooked the veggies.

Dinner is served.

Be back later. Off to yoga! :)
