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.
A moist delicious smoky sloppy joe was destined for greatness in Chad’s eyes and Munchkin keeps asking for more Joe’s. They pass the family test. Serve with a salad or corn and you have a quite and easy weeknight meal.
