Bombay Sloppy Joes

Lately, I have been trying to squeeze a bunch of activities into what’s left of summer as I possibly can! I just finished Where We Belong - by Emily Giffin and I really liked it, but my complaint with her is always the same - I want a real ending. One that has a night neat bow and is all wrapped up. Her books always leave you to interpret your own ending. It was good though, and I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a light and fluffy summer read!

On that note - I just started the second book in the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness - I read the first one forever ago, and loved it. This book is over 500 pages, so it’s going to take me just a little time to get through! So far I’m 4 chapters in and I’m loving it. I’m very curious how the story will unfold.

I think next summer I need to do one of the summer bucket lists I see floating around - basically a laundry list of things you want to accomplish in just the three short months that it decides to stick around. Don’t get me wrong - I love love love fall and I cannot wait for sweaters and boots, and scarves… but, summer has gone way way too fast.

I digress - this recipe is one my mom has made for Mike and I before, and we really like it. You can find the official recipe here. I serve it on an onion bun with my favorite sun chips - garden salsa flavor on the side. These sloppy joes have a LOT in them - pistachios, raisins, onion, cumin seeds, etc. My mom makes them with two serrano peppers, seeds and everything - I added crushed red pepper flakes for additional kick.

What are you reading? Anything I need in on!?

    Lukas recommends “The Hungry Caterpilar”, I recommend the “Shopaholic” books for light summer reading

    These are such a great twist on regular sloppy joes! I love grown up versions of kid food like this.

    By the way, if you need a really good book, I just finished Gone Girl the other day and STILL can’t stop thinking about it. Without giving too much away, there definitely isn’t a neat, wrapped-up ending, but I promise it’s worth it!
