Talaya’s WAVE Cafe Dish Of The Day: Red Velvet Gourmet Sloppy Joes

Every weekday morning at 8:00, Pat & Kim announce my WAVE Cafe Dish of the Day. Then during the WAVE Cafe starting at noon, listen for the cue to call 1-800-520-WAVE (9283).

Veronica Hendrix came up with these amazingly delicious spice rubs known as Red Velvet Gourmet Spice Rub and Velvet Noir Gourmet Spice Rub and Seasoning. You can check out her website at Enjoy!
