I have been trying to make my own bread more lately.  I like to know exactly what we are eating.  I am never sure what all those ingredients are in store purchased bread.  Here is one we like for sandwiches.   I raise my yeast with a little bit of sugar and water before i dump it in. then I pull it out of the bread machine, put in bread pan, let it raise again then I cook it for 30 minutes at 350*

My families favorite Sloppy Joes

  1. 1
    In a large skillet, brown ground beef, celery and onion.
  2. 2
    Drain the fat, who needs it?.
  3. 3
    Stir in remaining ingredients, simmer covered, 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. 4
    If Joes appear too'loose', leave cover off and let moisture evaporate.
  5. 5
    Cook until it's the consistency you like for serving on toasted buns, with french fries and cole slaw.

Spaghetti squash spaghetti .

I am mostly adding this to the blog so I can remember it for a day I am looking for an easy dinner.

1 spaghetti squash
1 large jar of spaghetti sauce (I made my own sauce)
1 1/2 pounds of ground turkey.

Put spaghetti squash in the oven.  I did 350* convection oven for 20 minutes. It really matters how big your squash is.   If you use regular bake you will need to add more time.

Cook your ground turkey.  Add sauce.  

Take your cooked squash,  take a fork pull out the squash.  It should come out looking like noodles.

Serve squash with meat sauce on top.
