Adult-ing it Sloppy Joes

A simple sloppy joe reminds me of childhood. Its messy and warm and dripping with sauce. If it were a Friday or Saturday night, this post would be about my childhood sloppy joe recipe and how I was eating it in my pajamas. Unfortunately, its a Monday and I have to be a grown up for a few more days. So here is my Adult-ing It Sloppy Joe, a refined version of a childhood favorite.

2) In other pan, heat a tiny bit of avocado oil.
3) Thinly slice onion, chop squash.
4) Add squash to avocado oil and season with garlic and onion powder, and a sprinkle of parsley.
5) When beef is mostly cooked, add onions and hot peppers. Stir and let cook a bit.
