an easy meal

You might think I am weird when I tell you that I love sloppy joes.  I always have.  Other than breakfast for dinner, sloppy joes was always my favorite meal that my mom would make.  That with tater tots. 

When I moved to Mexico I remember looking in the stores, hoping, not expecting, to find a can of Manwich.  Of course I never found any.  So, I turned to the internet.  I think looking for the sloppy joes recipe was the first step towards me realizing that you could make most anything from scratch.  Why I didn't realize that before, who knows.  I just never cooked much and never gave it much thought.  Of course I still battle with finding ingredients.

I think that is when I stumbled upon The Pioneer Woman's blog.  Glad I did!  She had a recipe that looked promising.  At the time I didn't realize she was a goddess in the kitchen and I need not doubt how good they would turn out.

The recipe is so simple and quick.  Since she has a pretty step-by-step recipe on her blog, there is no need for that on here.  I just wanted to share the recipe with you if you happen to be a freak like me and like sloppy joes. 

I usually leave out all the "optional" ingredients just to make it that much simpler. 

Excuse me now while I go and eat my sandwich!

I love sloppy joes. I use the meat in tacos, on top of mashed potatoes, pretty much anyway I can think of in addition to the usual sandwich.
