Gluten and Corn free sloppy joe

This is a sort of take on a sloppy joe that is gluten and corn free. We fix it for something different and it is pretty good.

1 1/2 lbs of ground beef
mustard gluten and corn free
bread gluten and corn free
2 slices baby swiss cheese


Brown the ground beef and drain. To the ground beef add mustard and honey to taste and stir. Heat until mustard and honey are warm. Toast the bread and place on plate. Cover with ground beef mixture. Melt 2 slices of cheese over top and serve warm with a salad.
You can also do the ground beef mixture and add potatoes to it and then melt cheese over it and serve with a salad as a casserole.

Crocheted Cross Bookmark and Potholder update

Just thought I would update you on the crocheted cross bookmarks that I am selling and money going to the missions at our church. As of today I have sold 135 and just got an order for 20 more. So this endeavor is going great.

I was able to give 18 potholders and dishcloths I was doing to the place that helps homeless families have a place to live and get back on their feet. They are opening something like 16 apartments and so I still have more to do. I have another 5 done now and still working on them. Here is a picture and pattern for one of the dishcloths and potholders I made.

The pattern for hot pad:
Materials 100% cotton
H crochet hook
