If you have ground beef...
Fix sloppy joes. Cook a pound of ground beef (or turkey), a chopped onion and 3 chopped carrots until the meat is cooked through (about 10 minutes). Drain the fat off with a ladle and add a teaspoon of chili powder and a 14.5-ounce can of chopped tomatoes. Simmer 10 minutes; serve open-faced on toasted buns with grated extra-sharp Cheddar and plenty of napkins.
