Homemade Sloppy Joes

Homemade sloppy Joes are a family favorite. This recipe calls for the addition of earthy mushrooms, giving the mixture a deeper, less sweet flavor.

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, is the things they are buying. It 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.

But then again, Walmart is the perfect place to pick up the ingredients for homemade sloppy Joes.

 * 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.

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!

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!
