Top with cheese if you like, we are having potato chips with our meal tonight. Fancy! I know!  Hang on to your hats.

To be honest my kids groan at this meal, but they eat it, cause I make them. “It’s this or you starve people!” Once they dig in there is really no complaints so go figure!?

Have a good night,

  1. Yeah, you're kids groan at this meal because they've been eatin' like Kings and Queens lately:) And I'm impressed…busy night and you still did homemade BBQ – I would have done the predone manwich meal in a jar or the old standby…Mac-N-Cheese:). I'm sending my kiddos to your palace for their meals!

  2. I have NEVER made homemade sloppies…you have brought this to a whole new level lady. Love you and hope the event went well.

  3. I remember days like that! What a great mom to make them something rather than running thru Wendy's:) I love Sloppy Joe's, which we haven't had in forever, but I bet we will soon and I will use your recipe!

  4. I am sure that is tastier than the stuff in the can I usually serve my family. My hubby likes his over rice which I told him is just plain weird.

  5. Looks great. Would love to win the cookbook. Just recently found the Pioneer Woman. Love your blog as well. My husband is an Ob/Gyn and I have 2 little boys.
