  1. The receipes sound & look good, thank you for them. I’m going to try some, but other ones I won’t. My way of eating is going to change, by trying these meal dishes. We love Sloppy Joe’s & hamburgers, so I’m going to try your version. Also, I enjoy soups & salads. Do you have a recipe for chili?
