Sloppy Joe Biscuits

The hubby used to have them when he was younger. I had made them a couple times before but forgot all about them until I saw a couple pinterest spots with them. I decided to make them last night for the hubby. Of course they were a hit! They are pretty easy to make!

Sloppy Joe Biscuits
-1 lb hamburger
-1 can 8 jumbo biscuits
-BBQ sauce
-A1 sauce
-shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Brown the hamburger, drain the grease. Put pan back on burner and add in a dash of A1 sauce, about 1/8 cup ketchup, and about 1/2 cup BBQ sauce. Heat until boiling then turn off.

Spray muffin tin with Pam. Open biscuit canister and pull out one biscuit. Flatten with fingers to make it bigger and then push into the tin. Continue to do to the rest of the biscuits. Spoon sloppy joes into your biscuit cups until overflowing. Don't worry if you have a little extra. My hubby likes to just add it to his on the plate to make it more messy! Take a pinch of shredded cheese and put on top of each biscuit cup.

Bake in oven for 12-15 mins (about how long it says on the pack to bake the biscuits alone) Take them out and serve them up! So yummy!!!

I don't even know what to call this post. I have gotten so far behind again :( There are many things I have been saying I would keep up with and not find myself back in a rut. Well, I guess I am back in a bad rut again. Depression is not a fun thing. I am finding I have my good days and my bad weeks. Its been a few bad weeks, maybe a month now. Today I woke up feeling a bit better and ready to take on the day. House work is the main target today. I hate how bad the house has gotten again. I will not show pictures as it will not pretty pretty and will probably make me feel worse.  Lets just say its not as bad as some houses but worse than a lot of others. Trying to find a balance between all this crazy madness and then including my head is a tough battle. I was on pinterest, my latest getaway drug, and found a couple great cleaning schedules. I put a bit of one together for myself and then printed it out. Its on my fridge and looks all pretty. Now, the goal is by this weekend to get the house completely caught back up to where I can actually do the list and then see how it goes. I am hoping it will bring the cleaning down to none like the marathons it feels I do when we are cleaning up.
