I grew up in a loving home with 7 of us.  Mom and Dad both worked several jobs and to say we were on a shoe string budget is a an understatement.  I lived a blessed life, dont get me wrong, but with such a full house time was a hot comodity.  Occasionally my mom would prepare semi-homemade food.  Sloppy joe’s were a favorite.  Straight from the can.  Pure messy deliciousness!  We could never get enough.
