Instant Mocha

My older son, Steven, loves his morning coffee. This is his recipe.

1/2c instant coffee
1c sugar
1c powdered milk
1/4c powdered creamer
1/4c unsweetened cocoa
1/4c instant vanilla pudding mix

Mix all together in a bowl. Pour into quart sized jar. Use 3-4T per cup of hot water. Don't leave out the pudding mix - that's what makes it creamy.

Super Easy Sloppy Joes

Or as my mother calls them - Juicy Pigs

1 pound ground beef, browned
1/2 cup salsa
1 cup tomato sauce
2T brown sugar

I didn't have tomato sauce, so I used a cup of jarred spaghetti sauce and will do that again. Just mix this all together and simmer until you're ready to eat. Really, really good. We use hoagie buns rather than hamburger buns just for a change. And of course, potato chips and pickles and cheese.
