Sloppy Joes, Green Beans, Sauteed Zucchini

This sloppy joe recipe is from my great-grandma. Seriously.

1 lb ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1/4 c ketchup
2 T vinegar
3 T mustard
1 (11.5 oz) can tomato juice
4 T brown sugar
1 T Worcester sauce
4-8 rolls or hamburger

1 zucchini
Italian seasoning
optional: shredded cheese

1 can green beans

In a large frying pan, brown ground beef with onion. Drain off fat. Add next 6 ingredients (ketchup through Worcester sauce). Simmer on low for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours, stirring every half hour, until thick. (Or cook on medium-high for 15-20 minutes, stirring often, until thick.) Serve on buns.

Chop zucchini into thin circles. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and coat with cooking spray. Sautee zucchini until tender. Season generously with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Sprinkle lightly with cheese, if desired.

Microwave green beans. Season with salt and pepper.
