Goop 5 Cents

My husband is at the store right now buying supper supplies for this next week. I am not the best cook in the world. I do ok with a good recipe, but this week I need the evenings to get an order out, so Hubsy is cooking all evening meals. (Actually, this is NOTHING out of the ordinary. He always cooks supper.)

This Snoopy cartoon made me giggle. This is how it goes on the nights that I cook:

What kind of Goop are you cooking tonight? I hear we are having Sloppy Dogs. We saw a Sonic commercial last night for an extra long Cheese Coney. YUCK.  Jerry thought it looked yummy, but knows I don't eat chilly. So, Sloppy Dogs it is!

(For those of you across the pond that may not know,  a cheese coney is a long hot dog with chili and cheese on it. Sloppy dogs are sloppy joes, spread over hot dogs on a hot dog bun.)


  1. Too funny! I was just craving a sloppy dog earlier this week and trying to explain the difference to my hubby. I finally got my sloppy dog for lunch on Thursday! Have a good week.

  2. hmm.. don't even know what a Sloppy Joe is :lol:

    My goop for last night was a home made meal cooked from scratch. Creamy chicken curry (made from chicken breast and greek yogurt, with some grated coconut) over a bed of brown rice.

  3. Cheese Coney = yuck
    Slop, Slop, Sloppy Joe = yum
    But a Sloppy Dog -- hmmm, might have to try that! Bet it'd really be delish over a Wrangler.

  4. Pat, that sounds yummy! Sloppy Joes are ground beef in a tomato paste sauce of sorts. LOL That explained not a whole lot!

    Sarah, what is a Wrangler? I don't like hot dogs, but I do enjoy a sloppy dog every now and then.
