Sloppy Joes

Shopping at the Walmart. You know, that store we all love to hate.

Why is it that Walmart attracts the strangest sights? Is it just because it is always so packed that you are bound to see something interested or is it that Walmarts are like a flame/moths relationship and just bring out the WT in people? I hate to shop there but the other night we had a blender incident and I was in need of some parchment paper so at 10:30 at night, Handsome and I found ourselves stopping at the local big box chain to pick up a few things (oh, and we totally splurged and I got to geek out on Thor all over again*).

The only thing that could top the people that grace the aisles of Walmart, it’s the things they are buying that really make me raise an eyebrow. For example, arrows, arrow tips, a target and Operation (that really annoying game that I sucked at as a child – still do) at 10:30 on a Friday night certainly makes me wonder what it is you are up to.




 * Seriously, Ladies, if you have not seen Thor – you do not know what you are missing. They do not go without proving that Chris Hemsworth got in mighty fine shape for the role – worth putting up with smashing hammers and comic book movies for 2 hours.

    Sloppy joes are awesome. Always makes me think of being a kid. There is not a Walmart very close to my house but sometimes I make the drive because lets face it things are cheaper there. But it is always an experience to go there….

    Thor was a great movie. And I also dislike shopping at Walmart. Idk if it’s the lighting that is weird or what but it definitely is a different world in there.

    I often wonder why Wal-Mart is so easy to hate! Gotta love it though. Gotta love these sloppy joe’s too. I haven’t had one in so long but it sounds delicious!

    Yum yum yum! The onion rolls with the sloppy joe mixture is just too much. I’m starving.

    I try to avoid Walmart at all costs but Super Target is across the city so sometimes I do end up there. And end up scared of out of my wits by the time I leave.

    These sloppy joe’s look great! I have trouble finding a healthy recipe for joe’s that actually looks and tastes good.

    And I avoid Walmart around here…its just too nuts! Especially near the holidays. They just made it a super Walmart or whatever and its even worse.

    Whenever I’m in Wal-Mart (which is rare!) I usually speedwalk and get the heck out of there! Haha.

    I forgot how much I love sloppy joes until I saw this picture. This recipe sounds great…especially with the mushrooms!

    I have two questions:
    1) hoe much water do you add? It is not listed on the ingredient list
    2) in the ingredient list you have paste but in the recipe it says sauce.
    Please and thank you!

    Not to many people could make a sloppy joe look good but your camera skills are pretty fine tuned girl. I love the Walmart story, unfortunately where I live that is about all we have to shop at because we live in that great state that started that lovely store :). See Friday nights can be entertaining just by a trip to wally-world LOL!

    Its funny but I’ve found myself at walmart a couple times this past week…before that it had been awhile. everytime I go in there I’m amazed at the prices…its sparks the frugal side of me! :) If I could stand the crowd, I would shop there more…but I can NOT stand the crowd :)

    My hubby’s all time favorite is sloppy joes. This looks delicious, your photos are awesome! I love the changes you made in the recipe!

    LOL! The game operation totally freaked me out as a kid because I was so bad I kept making that buzzer go off! GRRR! (You might like the song “people of Walmart”. Check it out on Youtube.)

    Sloppy joes are so fun to eat, especially with my other half. He doesn’t really like to get messy so it really is fun to watch while I chow down on mine. I have never ever had a recipe that looked decent. Thanks for this!
