As always this week's from

Try as I might I could not come up with a football twist on this great sandwich. All I know is that I love it even if it’s 4th quarter and the choke is beginning this mixture would bring a smile to anyone’s face.

Sloppy Joes
· 1 pound of ground round
· ¾ cup minced onion
· ½ cup diced green pepper
· ¼ cup diced celery
· 1 clove garlic, minced
· ½ cup water
· ½ cup low calorie organic catsup
· 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
· 2 Tbsp. tomato paste
· 1 Tbsp. vinegar
· ¼ tsp. dry mustard
· ¼ tsp. chili powder
· ¼ tsp. fresh cracked pepper
· 6 whole wheat hamburger buns, or sandwich thins

Combine first 5 ingredients in a non-stick skillet. Cook over medium heat until beef is browned, stirring to crumble. Drain and pat dry with paper towels. Wipe the skillet clean with paper towel. Return beef mixture to the skillet and add water and the next 7 ingredients stir to mix well. Reduce heat and cook uncovered about 15 minutes occasionally stirring. Spoon about ½ cup of mixture onto a bun and serve. Sides your choice I prefer a what else chips and beer, but you know what a huge plate of crispy Tater Tots would go nicely don’t you think? If your being healthy try a salad
