Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes

Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes

I am a day late with this week’s slow cooker recipe.  That’s what happens when you go out of town for 12 days.  I had a lot of fun attending two conferences and playing with my girls though!  I’ll be sharing some of the fun places I ate in Utah later this week.  You know I can’t live without my slow cooker.

Did you know that February is National Canned Food Month?   I am excited to be working with Mom It Forward as part of their Cans Get You Cooking Program.

Do you have certain childhood food memories?  Certain foods that remind you of growing up and dinner time as a kid?  Sloppy Joes is one of those for me.  Sloppy Joes were a frequent visitor to our dinner table and we loved them.  So when I had kids I assumed my children would also love them.  I was wrong.  How can a kid not love a sloppy joe!!??  Well, my kids didn’t like them so for many years I was deprived of one of my favorite childhood foods.
