My husband and I are always trying to find new ideas for dinner, especially with ground meat. My husband has mentioned how much he loves sloppy joes, so I thought, let’s try this! Easy peasy dinner, right?
My husband told me he was going to make them while I went on an errand, and wow! My husband can totally cook! This was delicious!
