Homemade Turkey Sloppy Joes.

Like I said yesterday, we had Turkey Sloppy Joes planned for Tuesday night din din.
So here is my from scratch, no jarred stuff here, Slop Sloppy Joes.
{advance apologies for the crap iphone pics}

- 1 lb ground turkey
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tbsp Adobe seasoning
- 1 medium onion chopped
- 2 medium carrots chopped into small pieces {now most people will use a bell pepper, my fam bam is not bell pepper fans, so carrot it is}
- 1 & 1/2 tbsp red wine vinegar
- 1 & 1/2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
- 2 cups tomato sauce
- 2 tbsp tomato paste
- potato rolls to serve

First brown the turkey with the brown sugar and adobe seasoning over high medium heat.
Once browned add onion and carrots. Then add red wine vinegar and worcestershire sauce and reduce heat to medium and cook for 5 mins.
Mix in tomato sauce and paste, reduce to a simmer and cook another 5 mins.

And bam!
You have homemade Turkey Sloppy Joes!!!!

For a side I made cucumber salad:
- cucumber
- shallot diced small
- 2 dollops of sour cream
- 1 tsbp red wine vinegar
- 1 & 1/2 tsp dry dill weed

Mix everything together, add salt and pepper to taste.

Add a little kick with a jalapeno pepper or
if you can't handle the heat, a sliced pickle will be nice.

BUT for the love of everything DO NOT FORGET THE TOTS!!

Need to try this. I need to get better with being organized for dinners. Working outside the home and being a momma is tough stuff.
