Hello Uplifting Families readers, Kristin from here. I am excited to be writing for Christy today! Let me introduce myself. I live in Chicago with my Bichon Frise, Joey. What I love most about the city is that there’s always something to do: grab drinks with friends, stroll along the Riverwalk, check out a new exhibit at the Field Museum, ride a Divvy bike on Lake Shore Drive and so much more. When I am not exploring new pockets of the Windy City, I am cooking one of my favorite dishes or a new recipe from Pinterest.
I don’t know about you, but summer flew by for me! As the weekend barbecues come to an end, it’s time to get ready for activity-packed schedules.
With back-to-school season around the corner, easy-to-make dinner ideas for weeknights become essential. That’s what I love about these sliders—they’re so simple to make and delicious! With this beefaroni–spin on an American favorite dish, you get the taste of macaroni mixed with the zesty flavors of a classic Sloppy Joe recipe. This SloppyRoni recipe takes just around 30 minutes to make, so you have more time to drive the kids to practice and help with homework!

1-1/2 cups green bell pepper, chopped
