BBQ Sloppy Joes

As mentioned in our "About Us" section, you can see that under my paragraph - I'm all about fast and easy meals. I really do enjoy cooking, but I've realized that I just don't have the patience to stand in the kitchen for hours. I get a little bit antsy. Instead, my recipes are geared toward being kid (and husband) friendly, making my life more enjoyable and giving myself more time to return to the exciting stuff. Like my homework.

These BBQ Sloppy Joes fall right in that category. Super easy. Super fast. And let me tell you - when you add in Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce - this recipe is super delicious! (Just between me and you - I could drink that stuff. But don't worry, I'm perfectly normal and don't secretly do that...) Obviously sloppy joes are a pretty straight forward recipe - I favor this one because of the sweet BBQ flavor and they are much easier and cleaner to eat. So, step away from your everyday sloppy joe recipe - and try this tasty alternative!
