Sloppy Joes

Have you ever seen It Takes Two
When Alyssa eats her first Sloppy Joe? 
That's how I felt today.

My mom used to make Sloppy Joes from a seasoning packet- which was good, but I decided I wanted to try to make them from scratch. 

This was my first Sloppy Joe since grade school and.. Holy Delicious... Michael thought they were fantastic. 

Sloppy Joes

  • 1/2 Yellow Onion, chopped
