Sloppy Lentil Joes


Today was my last official meeting with a volunteer opportunity I’ve had since April. I have one more event on Saturday and then I’m done! It will definitely be nice to have a lot more free time to spend on…wedding planning, blogging, Murph-playin and fiance spendin’. Okay that doesn’t sound like free time, but that’s all stuff that I will enjoy doing for sure.

Tonight’s dinner was a first. I bought a package of green lentils awhile ago at one of our local grocery stores, Woodman’s. (P.S. Woodman’s is pretty much the best grocery store ever. Well that and Trader Joe’s 🙂 ). Anywho, I’ve never eaten lentils let alone cook them so they’ve been sitting in the cabinets for awhile.

I’ve seen them made on several blogs so I decided tonight was the night to try them. I made ‘Sloppy Lentil Joes,’ obviously a play on Sloppy Joes.

To make them, I used green lentils, onion, carrots, green pepper, mustard, ketchup & barbeque sauce. I made way too much. Like, enough to feed an entire fraternity. For 7 days. For every meal. Lesson learned.

Moving on…I also made asparagus & sweet potato fries.

Little blurry…

Muuuch better.

Best. Sweet. Potato. Fries. EVER. (Alexia Frozen Sweet Potato fries if you’re curious)

I enjoyed the meal, Ryan however…did not. I don’t think at least. He thought it was just okay. Next time I would maybe mix 1/2 ground beef 1/2 lentils to make it more manly, hehe.

Now that I have um, a crap ton of lentils left…what else do I do with these?!

  1. Aaah Woodman’s is the greatest!!! When I lived in MKE, they didn’t have Woodman’s yet and grocery shopping was such a pain. Of course I found out there was one in Oak Creek right before I moved!

  2. The Oak Creek one is the one I go to! It is so freaking amazing. Every time I go in there I’m always in awe 🙂
