Have a cheat meal now and then!

I am always on the hunt for the next healthy food find! The majority of the time we are eating healthy proteins, fruits, and vegetables. We just feel better when we fuel our bodies with organic, non-gmo, grain free food. Are we perfect? Absolutely not! Because we eat healthy most of the time, I am totally ok with splurging on a cheat meal once and while! Especially when you can do it with a fun festive display!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! Fall time is such a fun time for foodies. With everything going on in the world, I think it is important to be thankful for what we have. Young and old, I think almost everybody can find something they like about Halloween! They even make Halloween champagne now! I mean…come on! That’s something to get excited about!

I like to make even the littlest of holidays fun! Presidents day….I’ll find a theme dinner for it…there are more red, white, and blue dinner items out there than you think! Seriously though…theme food is a fun thing to do! With all the scary things going on in the world, it gives me something fun to focus on. And what’s Halloween, without some orange food? So sticking with tradition, I made my Halloween Sloppy Joe Sandwiches!!

Recipes are more than a meal

Growing up, Sloppy Joe made a regular rotation in our house. Whether it was sauce from a can, or my grandma’s Sloppy Joe she made from scratch every Christmas Eve, it always was a favorite of mine. Something about it, brings me comfort. The recipe I used today however, I can not take credit for. I wish I would’ve been able to get my Grandma’s recipe…it is equally as good as this one…She was a fabulous cook!

A bit of advice, if you have somebody in your family or somebody close to you that is a great cook, beg and plead for their recipes! It would bring me comfort to have some of those recipes.

I am lucky enough, to still be surrounded by a great cook!! She is too humble to ever even realize how spectacular her food is!! My better half’s mom is THE MOST FABULOUS cook. She won’t give me all her secrets…at least not yet! I was blessed enough to get her Sloppy Joe ‘from scratch’ recipe (but even more blessed to have her in my life!) It is as fabulous as she is, so I must share it with you! I am so lucky to have somebody to share a passion of food with…I am so humbled each time she shares a tip or a recipe with me!

For this recipe I used 100 percent grass-fed grass-finished beef! I only use grass-fed grass-finished beef. I would encourage you all to buy the BEST $12.00 kitchen tool of your life!

 Why choose grass-fed grass-finished beef?

There are many reasons! A number of them health related. A few of the benefits of grass-fed beef include that it is lower calorie than grain-fed beef and that it contains more Omega-3 fatty acids than grain-fed beef! The second reason is the taste!!

Where can you get grass-fed grass-finished beef for a great price?
