Sometimes I work late, and I can't always make dinner. On those nights, I pass the baton to my boyfriend. He can man a mean grill and bake a serious frozen pizza, but I'm not always in the mood for grilled sausage or pizza.
Last night I asked him if he would make us some Sloppy Joes! It's quick, easy, AND if you use the right ingredients it can be healthy!
Here's what my FBP did:
1 can sloppy joe mix
1 lb. ground turkey
2 garlic cloves
1/2 white onion
1 bell pepper
1 - 2 chipotle peppers
1 bag of wheat buns
Brown the ground turkey. Then add the chopped onions and bell peppers. Let them sweat for a few minutes, then add chopped garlic and chipotle peppers. Then, add one can of sloppy joe mix!
*Notice I did not add any salt to the recipe. One thing about the sloppy joe mix in the can is that is has a lot of sodium and sugar, so you don't need to add any extra to the dish. In a pinch, this recipe can get dinner on the table without having to eat fast food or frozen pizza.
Citing Ty Herndon as inspiration yesterday... Billy Gillman filmed a video and uploaded it to YouTube. He is also gay.

Ty Herndon has come out of the closet! Read the entire story from People Magazine HERE.
Here's a couple of my favorite Ty Herndon songs from the 90's:
Good for you, Ty. I support your courage and hope you can be a role model...
Meghan Trainor (who sings "All About That Bass") steps up to the mic and belts out an AWESOME version of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off"! This is addicting! Check it out.
