On game day or a cold winter day, HubbyHubby loves warm hearty crockpot meals.
Sloppy Joes are one of his favorites.
Here's what you need to make enough for game day and have leftovers for lunch boxes the next day.
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
2 medium onion, finely chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, finely chopped
2 celery stalk, finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 pounds ground beef
2 cans (15 ounces) tomato sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
8 onion buns or hamburger buns split
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat.
Add onion, bell pepper, celery, and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook 5-7 minutes.
Add ground beef to skillet and break up until crumbled. Cook 6-8 minutes.
Place all the above in the crockpot and stir in tomato sauce, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve in soft onion buns.

What sport, hobby, activity does your hubby love? How can you participate, show a genuine interest and adapt yourself to his extra curricular fun?
Most grocery store chips are made with the wrong oil.
Some oils are bad for HubbyHubby right from the start and some oils are good from the start, but turn bad for you after being heated too high.
These chips are supper good for HubbyHubby because, 1. they are made from healthy veggies and 2. they are baked with coconut oil.
Here's what you'll need:
4 sweet potatoes
1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
salt & pepper
Here's what to do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Wash and pat dry veggies.
Slice using a mandolin ( 1/6" - 1/18").
Sprinkle lightly with salt on both sides to remove liquid.
Let the veggies rest for 30 minutes.
Rinse in cold water and pat dry.
Toss veggies in 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake on a cookie sheet in a single layer with no overlap for 15-20 minutes, until slightly brown.

Every Halloween I make Halloween Soup.
When the kids come home from school we carve pumpkins and get ready for tricke-or-treating.
Here's what you'll need for the evening of fun:
Cut squash and pumpkin in half and scoop out seeds. Place seeds in a bowl for latter.
Rub each cut half with coconut oil. Place cut side down on a baking sheet and bake on 350 for 1 hour.
In a large soup pot, melt butter and coconut oil and sauté carrots, celery an onion on medium heat until soft. Season with salt and pepper.
Scoop out the butternut squash and the pumpkin and add to the soup pot.
Add one cup chicken broth.
Blend with hand held mixing wand. Add extra chicken broth to desired consistency.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
HubbyHubby doesn't like it completely blended because he says it reminds him of baby food.
Ask your hubby how he likes the soup. He'll be happy that you care enough to ask.

Being thrifty really makes HubbyHubby happy. It shows him that I am thankful and appreciative of what we have and that I do my best to make the most of it.
At our house we eat lots and lots of veggies and some protein and some starch.
At the end of the week when there are leftover veggies and protein in abundance, I make Leftover Stirfry.
In a large skillet heat up some coconut oil.
Add a pinch of red pepper flakes, a 1/2 of teaspoon of ginger and 1 teaspoon of turmeric. Cook for 1 minute. (Turmeric is very healthy for HubbyHubby and the whole family.)
Add the veggies and protein and heat through.
Add leftover rice or make a fresh pot if you don't have any.
Serve with soy sauce.
Be thrifty and be in health.
