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.
