Day 4 of 30…Simple Sloppy Joes

Did you know:
Better food, better report card
Of teens who eat with their family fewer than three times a week, 20% get C’s or lower on their report cards, according to the CASA report. Only 9% of teens who eat frequently with their families do this poorly in school. Family meals give children an opportunity to have conversations with adults, as well as to pick up on how adults are using words with each other, which may explain why family dinnertime is also thought to build a child’s vocabulary.

After a busy weekend and a house that really needed cleaned something simple for dinner is just what was needed…these are family favs…

Simple Sloppy Joes
A homemade family favorite that is perfect for large gatherings or just the family…
Ground beef gained popularity during the early 1900s because it was both

meatballs, meatloaves or loose meat sandwiches, aka the original Sloppy Joe.
