Dressed Up Sloppy Joes

sloppy joeSloppy Joes are about the only meal I can ensure my whole family will eat without complaint, so when I’m in a mood and don’t want to hear any whining and I don’t feel like busting out the duct tape to keep my kids at the table, I bust these bad boys out. Made them last night, as a matter of fact…and when my eyes fell upon the blessed words “freezer instructions” I was the happiest mom alive!
