Cinnamon Rolls and Sloppy Joes

I've had a few requests from readers (all 4 of you) asking me to start posting recipes. Sure! Cause I have absolutely nothing else to do but spend *another* half hour on the computer. {eyeroll} Just kidding!! Actually, I'm rather flattered that there are people out there that want MY recipes. So, being the 'giving' person that I am, I have decided that I WILL start sharing recipes.
(NOTE; many, if not most of my recipes come from cookbooks, blogs, and cooking websites. I will try to cite the source if possible. I am not creative enough to come up with original recipes, but I do seem to have a good eye for finding recipes that will work for me and my family.)

As per the first request I got, from Amy-Sue, here is my Sloppy Joe recipe. It is from an old Mormon Cookbook, titled 'Mormon Country Cooking'. All 6 of my kids will eat this, except the oldest son, who will only eat it if I leave out the onions. He has texture issues. sheesh!

Jones Family SLOPPY JOES

2 lbs Hamburger
1 large Yellow Onion, finely chopped (the finer it's chopped, the less the kids will notice it)
1 can Tomato Soup
1/2 C. Ketchup (Heinz is the best!)
1/4 C Brown Sugar, packed
2 t. Chili Powder
2 t. Worcestershire Suace
1 t. Salt
1 t. Dry Mustard (or couple squirts of bottle mustard if thats all you have)

Chop Onion, spread in large frying pan. Top with Hamburger, turn on heat to medium high, and cook till hamburger is browned, stirring occasionally. Drain any fat off meat mixture, return to pan. Add remaining ingredients, mix well, simmer for 10-20 minutes. Serve on Hamburger Buns.

NOTE; you can adjust the spices on this, but it is not spicy at all. You can also add more brown sugar if you want it sweeter.

Now, on to CINNAMON ROLLS! Nope, sorry...you're not getting the recipe. I'm not THAT dumb, haha. I'm offering a Cinnamon Roll Special for the next 3 days. (that Tues-Wed-Thurs)
