Baby Boy caught his first cold last weekend. Not bad considering he is 7 1/2 months old. Poor guy was all sorts of congested and snotty, but he was in his usual good mood (aside from being angry when we would wipe his nose – seriously kid, snot mustaches are not cool!). Baby Boy was pretty much back to normal health by Tuesday – just in time for Mommy and Daddy to come down with what he had. And unlike Baby Boy, we were not feeling our usual selves; tired, run down, cranky. Almost as if we were new parents all over again!
Cooking when you are sick is the worst. We wanted a meal that we could throw together quickly and with minimal effort; thank goodness for Rachel from Not Rachael Ray! Her Turkey Sloppy Joes saved dinner on Tuesday. The meal was so convenient and so tasty we just had to feature the recipe for this weeks Taste Test Thursday. This recipe is easily going to be one of our “go to’s” when we’re short on time (or sick and not interested in elaborate cooking).
These Sloppy Joes are different from the ones Mom used to make (or the Lunch Lady). They have a slight sticky sweetness to them, and the fresh peppers add a nice little crunch. We had ours on mini kaiser rolls with french fries and broccoli salad. Quick. Easy. Delicious.
