ADMINISTRATOR’S CORNER: DeGioia’s Sloppy Joe Blog
This is gonna be a sloppy joes blog, because that’s my favorite food. Sloppy joes! Ah, they taste so good. To start things off with this first post, I’ll post pictures of a bunch of recent ones I’ve had:
This one I made Thursday afternoon at the office. I made enough for everybody, including Tennessee Gov. Phil Bresden, who stopped by campus to speak, but nobody seemed to want one. I ended up putting a plate of them on a table outside my office, but my staff said they were all too busy to eat one. I ended up going under my desk and eating them all myself after everyone had left for the day.
I ordered this one at the Franklin Family Restaurant in McLean on Saturday, but my son said I wasn’t allowed to eat it even though I told him I was really hungry and was paying for our lunch. He kept mocking me with how good his Kids’ Chicken Finger Platter was for the whole me, and then he said I couldn’t take the sloppy joe home with me in a doggy bag. So I don’t know what this one tasted like, but it looked really good.
I made this one last night after I walked in on my wife and the provost in our bedroom after I forgot to knock again. Stupid, stupid DeGioia. You’re supposed to knock, you know that. Those are the only words your wife ever says to you, “knock first, you creepy freak,” and you somehow always manage to screw it up. The sauce in this one was a little watery because I also forgot again to remember to not cry over the saucepan.
You know what, I’m going to stop this sloppy joe blog.
