Zucchini Sloppy Joes–from 365 Easy One Dish Meals

OOOPs! I forgot that I altered it a teeny tiny bit and I added a chopped yellow summer squash.

Listing Lunch & Describing Dinner

1 pound hamburger
Cook.
Then Add:
1 medium or half of a large Green Pepper, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium zucchini, chopped
2 plum tomatoes, chopped
And Cook until onion is tender–changes color to a more clear, not exactly browned.

Then add:
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
2 Tablespoons ketchup
1-2 tsps. Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper
You all liked me to sprinkle in a tablespoon of organic sugar here.
Heat to boiling, stir, reduce heat to low, simmer 10 minutes. (tip:if it is still too runny increase heat to boil off the liquid but stir at all times so as not to scorch.)

Original recipe suggest serving over toasted English muffin halves and eating as open faced sandwiches.
Mostly we ate it on whole-wheat buns.

Savoy Cabbage Slaw a la Around The Southern Table

Listing Lunch & Describing Dinner

1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup mayo
1 T. plus 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar(brown kind)
salt and pepper, to taste
Pinch of cayenne, (don’t put your finger in your eye till you wash wash wash!)
1 very small head savoy cabbage OR ask the produce person to cut one in half for you.

Mix sauce in the bowl, taste for seasoning.
Make a flat part of the cabbage by slicing some off, this will keep it stable so that you can cut cleanly without cutting yourself. Put a wet paper towel under your cutting board too. Slice very thinly (chiffonade) Then make 2 or 3 cuts across the slices, to make for better fitting into the mouth.
Add cabbage to the sauce mixture, toss to coat. Sometimes, washing hands very well and tossing with them is better than with spoons.
