Recipe Time! Vegetarian Sloppy Joes

Posted November 3rd, 2011 in News, Recipe o' the Week and tagged , , , , , , by daniellegrace

In un-paper-related news, I’ve decided I need to get back on the “Recipe ‘o’ the Week” train, effective immediately! Bear in mind that this in no way constitutes a commitment on my part to releasing a recipe on a weekly basis. That might have been the idea at one point, but now, I just like the way it sounds.

This one is dedicated to my cousin Kendra, off eating caf food at King’s College in Halifax this year. I will make you real food one day again soon, Kendra!
