Congrats Courtney! Please e-mail me at:

Good Saturday everyone! Hope you are enjoying your days off work and school. We have all been dealing with colds this past week. It seems that this is the time that everyone gets sick, at the end of winter. I found out that when I have a cold I can sing better than when I don't have a cold (you wouldn't want to hear me either way). Weird, I know. But, I'll still take a cold any day over the flu. As a matter of fact, I like simply being healthy! Don't we all.

I like to fix this for dinner on my dinner night. It is so easy and sloppy joes paired with fries are a hard meal to beat. I love the addition of kidney beans in this mixture, they add lots of flavor. I also like to dump more chili powder than the recipe calls for, chili powder is one of my favorite seasonings. Mrs. Butler, I know you said you were looking for a good Sloppy Joe recipe, hopefully you'll like this one.

Kidney Bean Sloppy Joes
1/2 pound ground beef
2 tablespoons chopped onion
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup water
1-1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
3/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 can of dark red kidney beans, drained
6 hamburger buns, split
In a large saucepan, cook the beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the ketchup, water, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, pepper, cayenne, and kidney beans. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until mixture reaches desired thickness. Top each hamburger bun with mixture.

Lewis. I like to say he is half-human, even though I know he isn't. His personality is beyond any dog I've had or any dog I've come in contact with. He thinks he owns the house. He loves refried beans, tomatoes, vegetables, fruit, gum, chocolate, paper, shoes, and anything he isn't supposed to put in his mouth. Loves to chase and scare to death my sister's cat. Has nightmares and shakes when sleeping. He has huge paws. And yes, he snores when he sleeps too. (The extra collor you see on him is his shocking collor.) If I was asked to describe Lewis, there is only one word....weird.

Hope you have a great weekend and I'll see you with a dessert recipe soon!
