Menu Board Monday Edition #2




Ever since I was a little girl, when we had a birthday dinner, we had barbeque...aka- sloppy joes {plus a slice of cheese}, potato chips, and of course, birthday cake for dessert.  Well, I have tried so many different recipes of sloppy joes and they just don't even add up to my Mom's recipe.  Our family was never much for peppers or anything so it's a simple recipe, but oh so good! {I'm sure you could add peppers if your family prefers them} This week kicks off the next two weeks of birthdays in our house.  So I decided that I'd share a family tradition with you!  So inexpensive to make and a great recipe to have on hand because pretty much... it just requires the "staple" ingredients that most of us have on hand. AND.... easy to double for extra company! Another plus: you can put it in a crock pot and forget about it until you're ready to eat, leaving more time for the BIRTHDAY DECORATIONS! :) I have to admit that bread just isn't my thing, so ever since I can remember, I'd just eat the barbeque in a bowl with shredded cheese sprinkled over it {with chips}.  And honestly, I could even handle it re-heated in the microwave! And that says something because I am NOT a fan of left-overs!  Add this to your menu this month and let me know how you like it!

  2. I love your mom's Sloppy Joes!! I got the recipe from one of my mom's ward (Holbrook I think) cookbooks, like 15 years ago. I was making them for my family in Idaho and now I make them for my little family here.
