Sloppy Joe's

Not gonna lie.

I don't like Sloppy Joe's.

It's like mush on a bun.

Gross.

The Mr. and my cherub's "Love" Sloppy Joe's.

Thanks to Mimi, they get Sloppy Joe's.

Yeah, Mimi!

Mimi has a friend that makes homemade Sloppy Joe's.

Now, Sloppy Joe's don't seem so bad.

Really!

I don't crave them or anything, but when push comes to shove and I need an easy dinner and I want the family to be happy -- I'll make Sloppy Joe's!

That's right!  Personal preference pushed to the side all for the sake of the family.

That's just the kind of woman I am.

Enough.

You know what I like about this recipe?

Two things:
  1. It doesn't come in a can (i.e., "Manwich" -- not knockin' it -- just sayin'!)
  2. Her directions say "heat and eat!"  Great for a busy night!

Marcia's Sloppy Joe's

1 lb. ground beef
6 oz. can tomato paste*
Barbecue sauce*
Water
Buns*
Brown and drain ground beef .

Stir in tomato paste. Fill empty tomato paste can with barbecue sauce; dump it in. Half fill empty can with water, or a little more if you like it thinner, (and we don't -- we prefer "thick sloppy Joe's) and pour it in.

Heat. Eat.  (That's exactly how she had it typed.  "Heat.  Eat."  I like it -- to the point!)

*This is very easily made gluten free by using the ingredients that you know are safe for your diet.
