Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes

Today we are making sloppy joes in the slow cooker.  Now I know you might be thinking, is it really necessary to make sloppy joes in a crock pot? The answer is yes – it is perfect for a night when you want dinner ready and waiting for you when you walk in the door.  It is perfect for a day when you have sometime in the afternoon where you can throw this together, then you can take off for basketball practice, Christmas shopping, etc.

This works for me because I have fequent dr appointments with my daughter in the late afternoon.  I try to get her appointment so she can miss the least amount of school.  I can throw this together and head off to the dr.  Then when we get home I have a nice hot dinner already to go.

This recipe is very similar to my mom’s sloppy joe recipe.  It also makes enough for two meals for my family, so I freeze what we have left for another night.  Then I just thaw in the fridge and reheat.

I also have a new giveaway starting today.  Go check it out, it will give you an idea for a fun party.
