Three cheers for Adam Sandler

Sloppy Joe's, slop, sloppy Joe's. Come on, you know you were thinking it when you saw the picture. For dinner tonight I pulled another recipe out of the Hot Damn and Hell Yeah cookbook. I should start by reiterating that I hate mushrooms. However, I included them in this recipe and I did not puke my guts out. There were a lot of vegetables in this and I was happy to be serving it to the fam. I would probably like bigger chunks of TVP but other then that the recipe was great.

Joe said he doesn't really like sloppy joe's, heh, but he went back for seconds
and said that he would take the rest for lunch tomorrow. Isaac really liked it but Ramsey said it was yucky. To be fair, I'm not sure that I saw her even take a bit before declaring that it was yucky. I'm honestly not sure that I even remember what sloppy joe's is supposed to taste like but it seemed right to me.

After dinner we had a hankering for some ice cream so I pulled out Vice Cream to find a cool tasty treat. We settled on chocolate chip. Again, I lowered the maple syrup to 3/4 cup from a full cup. I really wasn't impressed with how it turned out. I mean, we ate it but it wasn't anything special.

I'm guessing that vanilla is probably the hardest flavor to turn out because there isn't anything really strong about the flavors to cover the flavors of cashew or maple. We love all of the chocolate variations from Vice Cream and recently went gaga over the coconut and those are pretty strong flavors. So, that's my uneducated guess.

I'm not actually sure that my punctuation is correct on Sloppy Joe's. I'm not looking it up either.

I've never found a good sloppy joe recipe, my dad was the master of the meat type when I was a kid though...found memories. I'll have to try these!
