Sloppy Joe Totchos


  January is usually a tough month financially in our house as I am sure it is in houses across the country. I try to spend little to no money on groceries as we pay off December bills and do a bit of traveling for my daughter to dance. We had a great weekend in…

Sloppy Joe Skillet Pasta


This has been a crazy month! With all we have had going on – 8 nights in hotels, graduation, an overseas trip for my son, a graduation party, dance recital, cello recital, doctors appointments, and physical therapy to just name a few things groceries are on the back burner. Besides this is the month we…

Sloppy Joe Pasta


I am always trying to turn some of our favorite dishes into new recipes. My family loves Sloppy Joes. The other night I had thawed about 2 lbs. of ground beef and was trying to come up with a meal that I could make without having to run to the store for any ingredients. We…

Sloppy Joe Pizza


I started mentioning this meal to my family several day before I actually made it. No one said anything but I got “The Look.” The look that says she really has gone too far this time. I love homemade Sloppy Joes but don’t make them very often.  A few days ago I really wanted to…

Pizza Sloppy Joes


You know I am all about saving time making dinners. This was one of those times when I could cook all the meat at once and make two meals out of it. The first one was the Pizza Sloppy Joes and the second meal was an Unstuffed Pepper Casserole. It was great to have two…

Cheesy Sloppy Joe Stuffed Potatoes


This past weekend my partner and I had to go to two different places for the weekend. My daughter and I headed to a Feis (Irish dance competition) in Detroit, MI while my partner and son headed to Rochester, NY for a family baby shower.  Both weekends were crazy so meals are going to be…

Cheesy Tater Tot Casserole


Wednesdays are one of the few days that we actually eat dinner at a normal time. We are late eaters. We like to have dinner together so we are sitting down to dinner any time from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm. But, Wednesdays are generally a bit earlier as no one has anything after 6:00…

Baked Turkey Sloppy Joe Egg Rolls


So Feis (Irish dance competition) season has officially started for us. We attended the Dayton Feis in Dayton, Ohio. This was the first time for us attending this Feis. It was in a large airport exposition warehouse which meant there was lots of room and it didn’t feel crowded at all. We didn’t get to…

Rachael Ray Inspired Moussaka Sloppy Joes


As I was driving around town today I noticed all the signs for $5 lunches. I thought, “Hmmm, that’s not bad.” But, then the other side of me kicked in. That is lunch for one person. Could someone take that money and make dinner for their family with it? Of course. I started to think…

Vegetarian Sloppy Joes over Corn Bread


I love Fall. It is my favorite season. I always think of Back to School time as the real New Year’s Day. We get to start all over again. It is a new school year with new teachers, new clothes and a hopeful feeling for a great year. It transfers over to our house too….

Cheesy Sloppy Joe Eggrolls


Day three without a kitchen sink.  It is now glued back on but it needs to dry for 48 hours and then be sealed.  I am getting really tired of not having a sink and running water in the sink.  I can use my dishwasher but I don’t put pots and pans in it.  So,…

Sloppy Joe over Cheesy Cornmeal Waffle


My new waffle maker came today so of course I have to immediately try it out.  I knew I wanted something unique and savory to try so this is what I created.  The meat of the day was the ground beef my daughter chose from the freezer and I immediately thought of Sloppy Joes like…
