This Beats Manwich Hands Down–Homemade Sloppy Joes

28 Jan

Jordan’s favorite dinner growing up was Sloppy Joes. She recently told me it was because  Mary Kate and Ashley always ate them on “It takes Two” and she wanted to be just like them. Well back then, my idea of sloppy joes was brown a pound of ground beef and add a can of Manwich. That made my little Mary Kate and Ashley wanna-be very happy but I always knew there could be more. mary

Well there is and I found the answer on Pioneer Woman, what a shock!!!!
These are so good. I can’t believe what I have been missing all these years.
