So after working 9 hours yesterday, then grocery shopping after work, I was tired! So an easy dinner was in store for me. My kids were gone again with their old babysitter for the afternoon/evening, so I made something only my husband and I like….Sloppy Joe’s. I’ve made them from scratch before, but last night I made them with Manwhich. BUT, I wondered if I could do the same thing I have done with my pasta sauce, and beef stew…..can I add more veggies to this??? Turns out you can!!
I took the can of Manwhich, put that in the blender and added 1 yellow pepper, one green pepper, 1/2 a white onion and 1/4 cooked cauliflower and blended it so you couldn’t see any trace of veggies! I added that to ground sirloin beef.
And, of course you can’t have Sloppy Joe’s without tots!!! 10 Tater tots are only 3 points, so you can have those once in a while. And I felt like I was getting more veggies into my regular sloppy joe’s. They tasted great, no one would have known I added more veggies!
Also at the store (I shopped at Aldi) I found a few of my favorites:
These deserts are tasty! Only 70 calories too! It tastes like Italian Ice!
Has anyone had this cereal?? I love it! If they have it there I buy several boxes:
It’s 5 points per serving, but so worth it! I’ll use this granola as a base for home made trail mix. I’ll take this cereal, add some honey nut Cheerios, almonds, sunflower seeds, a little chocolate chips, or sometimes raisins. Check it out if you get the chance!
Have a great day everyone!
