The seasons, they are a-changin’ round these parts. Temperatures have been in the 30’s and 40’s, the sun is setting around 5:00, and tomorrow is supposed to bring real snow! So it’s a cozy food kind of week, starting out with these BBQ/sloppy joe sandwiches. And also,  we had some sloppy joes last week that were not very good, so we needed redemptive joes =)

This recipe is from a brand new Gooseberry Patch cookbook that I will tell you more about later this week (and I can’t wait!) But for now, for tonight, all I have the brains for is sharing a simple dinner recipe. I hope you like it =) These sammiches were so flavorful and tangy, perfect with a couple homemade pickles, and since The Boy’s current favorite thing to eat is meat they’re his new best friend. Seriously. He’ll tell you that. I get him up in the morning, ask what he’d like for breakfast, and he will say, ‘meat’. =) Husby is thrilled.

2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 c. onion
1/4 c. green pepper, diced
1 – 1/2 c. ketchup
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. dry mustard (this was a little much for me, so I’d cut it next time)
2 T. cider vinegar
1 t. salt
12 sandwich buns, split

Brown beef in a skillet over medium heat; drain. Add onion and green pepper; cook for several minutes, until tender. Stir in remaining ingredients except buns. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer until thickened, about one hour. Spoon onto buns. Serves 12.
