Rob and his family like good food and they have been introducing me to the finer tastes in life. Now I like good food, too, but I’m more of a meatloaf and mashed potatoes with a side of buttermilk pie kind of a gal.  The Andes clan are far more worldly and introduced me to my first ever experience with oysters, for example. And while I am always going to appreciate people kind enough to feed me I have to say that they won’t have to worry about ever sharing their oysters with me again. It is just not my thing. In fact, I ordered shrimp and when they came out with heads and eyes staring up at me I thought I was going to pass clean out. But it turned out those little fellas were super dang tasty. Lesson learned!

When it comes to cooking up some supper for Rob and myself I go with the things I know… I won’t be preparing any oysters or fancy cuts of meat and as long as I’m cooking I think I could make anything and he’d appreciate it. So I went out to Kroger, who is celebrating the tastes of Italy, and grabbed a jar of Bertollli® Marinara to whip us up a fantastic Italian influenced American dinner. I’d like to introduce Italian Sloppy Joes with Garlic Bread Buns! Woo!

Brown your ground beef and ground Italian sausage together in a skillet. Drain grease really well.

Put garlic and butter onto the inside of your buns. A store-bought version works well or melt about 1 tablespoon and add in 1/4 teaspoon of Italian herbs and 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder.

    There’s one more thing I wish to say and I wish to make this public. I really like your blog Allison. I think I’ve mentioned this before,
    but I’ve been on other blogs and some of the people on them are mean, both who write them and those that reply. And sometimes the things that they say (or imply) sort of hurts my feelings.
    But you’re always friendly and nice, which is one of the reasons I enjoy visiting your site.
    Thank you for being you and being awesome. Keep it going!

    Have a great day!
