Sloppy Sunday!

Surprise, surprise! I decided to go a "non-traditional" route for dinner today! Instead of my usual Southern-style dishes, I threw caution to the wind and opted to prepare a simple and quick meal today. So what was it you ask? Well....(drum roll please) was good old fashioned Sloppy Joes!!! =)

I had some ground beef in the fridge that had been thawed in hopes that I would make this meal on Friday night, but that never happened. So in efforts to salvage the ground beef and not let it go to waste, I figured sloppy joes on Sunday night would be just as good as sloppy joes on Friday night. Bon appetite! =)

Sloppy Joes and Potato Chip Fries

1 pound lean ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
3/4 cup ketchup
3 teaspoons brown sugar
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste

1. In a medium skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef, onion, and green pepper; drain off liquids.
2. Stir in the onion powder, mustard, ketchup, and brown sugar; mix thoroughly.
3. Reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
