# Sloppy Joes

On the menu for last Friday: Sloppy Joes
We all put gloves on so we could add 7lbs of ground beef into our pot!

We watched the onions chop in the grater! This was a great learning experience for us because we found out we couldn’t cut the onions because they would burn our eyes and make them watery!

Once the onions were chopped we all jumped in to mix the beef and onions together! We were able to feel the cold mushy beef. It felt very different on our little fingers! ;-D

Once it cooked and we had it for lunch we all really enjoyed it! We may add this to our lunch menu next!
