Tarot Recipe: The Sloppy Knight

It may come across as harsh, but I find the Knight of Cups to be a bit sloppy. They are a dreamer who often appears to not really care about what direction they are headed as long as they are following their heart. While I am all for following one’s heart, I can’t help but think “if only they had a destination in mind.”

Have you ever been loved by a Knight of Cups? Been in a Knight of Cups-style relationship? Been the Knight of Cups? They are the original knight-errant ever in search of romance. This is that person who is in love with being in love.

Because of their sloppiness, I am dedicating this recipe to them.

The Knight of Cups Sloppy Joes (low-sodium version)


1.5 lb turkey
4 tbsp low sodium tomato paste
1/2 large onion diced
1/2 large green bell pepper diced
2 C cherry tomatoes
3 cloves garlic minced
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tbsp Brown Mustard
1 1/2 tsp ground mustard
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
5 tbsp ketchup
1/3 cup water


Saute onions BRIEFLY then add turkey and brown it up.
Add cherry tomatoes (we had some that we needed to use up…you can skip if you like.) Smash them up as they cook. Watch for the squirters!
Add onion, green pepper and garlic. Continue to cook 3-5 minutes until vegetables are slightly softened.
Add tomato paste. Mix in well.
Add remaining ingredients. Mix well. Cover and cook 10-15 minutes.

If you want to do this in a crockpot:

Cook meat,onions, bell pepper and tomatoes. Drain. Put in crockpot. Add seasonings et al. Cook on low for 3-4 hours. Taste. Adjust seasoning if necessary.
