Sloppy Joe Rice

Cooking today went better than cooking yesterday. I managed to fix the soup by adding more broth (store-bought), and I cooked up a dish I’m calling “sloppy joe rice.” It is made thus: brown 1 lb of extra-lean ground beef. Add 3 cups (1 jar) of pasta sauce. Simmer. Meanwhile, cook 1 box of rice (3 cups cooked). When both are ready, combine and stir. Eat. The result has the consistency of sloppy joes, but is quite tasty, if I do say so myself. And since I used store-bought pasta sauce, I don’t need to muck about with spices I won’t taste anyway. (Ah, the joys of having no sense of smell…)

This will probably be all for “adventures in cooking” for a few days. I’ve got 5 more portions of the sloppy joe rice, at least that many of the soup, and I think I’m going to take it easy on the cooking for a bit. I need to get out of this house. *grin*
