Sloppy Joes

Chris asked me today why sloppy joes are so sloppy.  I told him it was because he likes to pile the meat high onto his bun!  Or, perhaps I should say he slops the sloppy high on his joe??  Tonight was a pretty simple yet delicious dinner: sloppy joes with a side of chips and baked beans (canned).  When you get home late from work (quarter til 7) and have limited food supply (it's grocery night!), your choices are limited.

PS:  Don't tell Chris that there's mustard in this recipe!  He'll probably refuse to eat it ever again!!  I had to keep him out of the kitchen to add it to the recipe and he ate it unsuspectingly...mission accomplished ;).  Then again, I'm sure he eats foods with mustard and other "allergenic" foods (eggs, mayonaise, cream cheese, sour cream, non-skyline cheddar cheese, etc.) all the time...
