Rhiannon has been sick for a while and although she's getting better, today was an "off" day. And I was trying to catch up on housework so it was getting pretty late in the afternoon before I had even though of what I was going to make for supper. So I went with one of my "OMG, what am I gonn'a make" favorites. Sloppy Joe Pie.
I grabbed a sleeve of ground beef from the depths of the freezer (and almost got lost in there), chucked it in a pot on the stove and turned the heat on. While the beef was cooking, I folded a load of laundry, went to the pantry and (luckily) found a can of Sloppy Joe mix, opened it up and plopped it in the pot of cooked ground beef and kept it on low.
Whipped up a batch of biscuits, threw another load of clothes in the washer. Rescued a dinosaur from the clutches of the "bad" dinosaur gang and helped Rhiannon put them in jail (i.e. pillows propped up against the couch).
After incarcerating the velociraptors, I went back in the kitchen to finish up our evening meal. Which basically meant pouring the sloppy joe mixture into a baking dish, slapping some American cheese on top, then dropping spoonfulls of the biscuit mix on top of that. Popped that sucker into a 400 degree oven, went outside to feed the goats & shut up the chickens, came back inside and served everyone a steaming hot bowl of Sloppy Joe Pie while we watched The Empire Strikes Back.
