I’ve been trying not to talk about Big Brother too much because I feel like the viewership gets smaller every year (I don’t blame you) but man, this has not been my year.

My faves are all gone already.

I’m still obsessively watching the live feeds and reading updates when I can’t watch the feeds but I just don’t like any of them. None of them. I keep hoping Big Brother will come over the speaking and “You all suck – we’re canceling the show so that the 5 people still watching can return to their lives.”

That said, I’m officially on Team Jackie now. Which means she’ll be evicted next week.


Anyway, that meal plan I posted over the weekend inspired me to not only plan stuff to cook this week but to also make sloppy joes! I always forget how much I love sloppy joes until someone mentions them and then I can’t stop thinking about them.

You really can’t beat how fast and easy they are. Seriously, there’s nothing easier than browning meat, stirring together a sauce, and putting it on a bun.

These Maple BBQ Sloppy Joes are scrumptious! I love my sloppy joes a little bit sweet and the maple gave just the right amount of sweetness. Plus, for whatever reason, the cheddar on top made them even yummier. Maple and cheddar? Idk, it worked.

Maple BBQ Sloppy Joes
Servings: 8 servings
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 8 soft burger rolls split
  • shredded cheddar cheese for topping
  1. Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add turkey and onion and season with salt and pepper; cook, breaking up the turkey, until the meat is cooked through and the onion is translucent. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in tomato sauce, maple syrup, soy sauce, cider vinegar, brown sugar, and dijon mustard. Simmer on medium-low until the sauce has thickened slightly, just a few minutes.
  2. Serve immediately on rolls and topped with cheddar cheese.
