Sloppy Joes

A couple weeks ago I was working in So Cal & stopped by to visit Krystal.  When I am working in So Cal I usually stay at Casa de Krystal marvelous home!!!!  I would much rather stay at Krystal's home any day over a hotel. I always feel at home, her home is so comfy/homey and she is an AMAZING chef!!!! 

Krystal made these amazing sloppy joes for dinner during my visit.  I will be honest sloppy joes are not one of my favorite things and Art loves them.  I <3 these sloppy joes & could eat them weekly!!!!  The orange zest adds such amazing flavor.  I am tempted to try adding lemon zest sometime to see how they would taste.  I think Art & I would eat the same foods all the time if it wasn't for Krystal blog & wonderful recipes!
