Sloppy Joe Recipe

Even though my post yesterday made it seem like the whole weekend was a bummer, it certainly was not!

Troy and I both agreed we had one of the best dinners in a long time. I couldn't wait to share the recipe with you all!

Friday night's dinner was certainly sloppy.
And by that I mean sloppy joe's were on the menu. After finding out awhile back that Troy has never had them. How does that even happen?! Sloppy joe's a summer camp weekly special.

In a mixing bowl I combined 1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar, 1/2 cup of ketchup, 1.5 T of BBQ sauce, and 4oz of ground beef. Once it was combined I cooked the mixture in a pan over medium heat.
Then it was time to eat!

The BBQ sauce was a sweet and smokey offset to the sourness of the vinegar. Cooper got one piece of the meat that fell and would not leave the table. He is not used to all those sauces!

Since we didn't have any gluten free buns lying around, I had my sloppy joe "naked" haha.
Mission Accomplished- the boyfriend is now a fan of sloppy joe's. They are such a classic summertime meal to me. I need to keep making these in the winter because they are so delicious.

**What is your favorite summertime dinner? Mine is anything grilled and eaten outside!
