La Cena Americana

It seems that almost all of my friends have prepared some sort of a dinner for everyone. Everyone except me. So that’s when I decided it was time I made some sort of a dinner for all of my friends.
But there’s a problem (or two). What can I make? Everyone knows I don’t know how to cook.
What can Americans make? They all assume that all we’ve got in us are hamburgers and french fries. So last night I made something that is not-so-healthy but really delicious and typical American. And to my surprise (and maybe to everyone else’s), it was a complete success.  Considering the last thing I made was a complete flop, this awful macaroni and cheese that was thicker than a brick wall. But last night, I made something to everyone’s gusto.

I made Sloppy Joe’s and Pasta Salad. Here’s the recipe for any of you living in Spain looking for an easy recipe.

One thought on “La Cena Americana

  1. The Sloppy Joe’s sounds (and looks, because googled some pics) sooo tasty. But I wonder where one can find turkey meat, specially in Spain. WTH. And also, is it possible adding some cheese (queso rallado?) or sweet corn OR even some baked beans? xD
