Ladies Who Lunch

I LOVE the ladies I work with! I am truly blessed to work with such amazing folks. So, to say thank you, I told them not to bring their lunches on Friday. I was going to make lunch for everyone in our office. (There were only 5 of us there that day) Jessi brought the soda and Ali brought the chips. It was awesome! That may seem like everyday stuff to you guys, but we work at a Health Food Co-op, so Coca-Cola is hard to come by!

That morning before work I browned two pounds of hamburger meat and tossed it in my crock pot with 1/2 cup of chopped onion and 4 tbsp. of ketchup and mustard. Stirred it all together, snapped on the lid, and quickly headed on to work. (I'm lucky my crock pot has a carrying case!!) Once at work I plugged it in, layed the sliced cheese on top, and cooked it on low for three hours. The result= Sloppy April's. A mix between cheeseburgers and chilli. You may remember these sandwiches from a past post. I enjoyed mine with an Ener-G Tapioca Dinner Roll. Yum!

I added an extra slice of cheese to mine since it was so tiny. The Ener-G rolls are good, but you have to warm them in microwave for about 30 seconds before enjoying. And eat them quickly because once they cool off they're pretty tough.
