Sloppy Joes. A kid favorite. Don’t use the can to create a batch, make it yourself instead!
I’m about keeping things simple. Anything I can do to make things easier works for me! This Sloppy Joe recipe is one of the ways I do just that! Not only is it simple, it tastes so good (much better than that canned stuff from the store).
Even though it is great the night we make it, it’s even better as leftovers. The flavors have more time to really blend together. Sadly, the leftovers only make it 1 – 2 nights around here – as we just can’t leave them alone!
