  1. I have been making and eating Sloppy Joe sandwiches for well over 50 years now.

    But it’s always interesting to see some young person come along and tell us ‘old folks’ how to do it.

    However, you did a fine job, and I am glad that you have discovered and presented what we old timers have been doing for many decades.

    Great Blog, by the way.

  2. Wow! Another great Sloppy Joe recipe. There are so many great variations & people are really enthusiastic about them! Thanks for some more ideas.

    I have a page about sloppy joes which you can visit through my link. Mine include green peppers and corn. Never would have thought of mushrooms! Yummy.
