Sweet and Sloppy Joe's
Which is WHY I started crying in Home Depot, in front of the Handy Helper Guy.
I was trying to explain to Mr. Woo about my big plans for Halloween. Plans that I can't tell you about just yet. I want it to be a surprise. I'll show you on Monday. Promise. Just know they are HUGE PLANS. For my yard. And yours, if you're so inclined. But anyway, back to the story.
So Mr. Woo and I are standing in the PVC Pipe Aisle at Home Depot. And I (the artist) am trying to have a serious CRUCIAL conversation with him (the practical engineer) about something ENORMOUS I'd like us to construct. Meanwhile, the 2 year old has removed all the Lanyards from the end cap and placed them on her neck while she does summer sault-ish type maneuvers. The 10 year old and the 7 year old are screaming at the top of there lungs in a argument that is about to come to blows, and the 5 year old is sitting in the shopping cart pleading to get out, while the rest of us ignore her.
Me: Okay Warwick. I want it to look like this. REALLY HUGE. GIGANTIC. I think the legs should be at least 4 ft long.
Warwick: 4 ft???? Each Section????? You're not serious. That's too big. It'll take up our whole yard.
Me: I know.
Warwick: How am I supposed to mow?
Me: Either around it, or not at all. I don't care.
Warwick: I think only two feet.
Sweet & Sloppy Joes
Just as the name states, these are Sweet. Similiar to a Honey Barbecue Flavor, and not much tang like a lot of Sloppy Joe recipes. This is my favorite Sloppy Joe Recipe. EVER.
