It's Monday again. These weeks just continue to fly by. I decided to stay home and take a "snow day" today. My daughter went to Mall of America for the day with her bff, and I wanted to take advantage of some free time at home and catch up on blogging, and do laundry. It's so peaceful! Besides, it snowed alot overnight and this morning, and I didn't wanna commute in that mess!

Today's recipe is gonna be a new favorite!! Sloppy Tots... sounds good right? They are! This is the perfect weeknight meal and is finished in less than 30 minutes. My sister and I both loved it and would make it again on a regular basis. Ella loved it too. She is in her picky phase right now, so she had the tator tots and sloppy joe meat separate on a plate, and the lettuce and tomatoes in a small salad with vinaigrette. She's so funny!
