Sloppy Joes {PALEO}

Late last week I had a major craving for Sloppy Joes, but when I set out to make them I realized I didn’t have the right ingredients on hand.  Boo!  I was frustrated.  It was one of those days where nothing seemed to work out the way I wanted it to, you know the type?

So, I had to settle for putting the Sloppy Joes I longed for on the menu for this week; for Monday. And that’s what we ate.  Here’s what I did: Sloppy Joes {PALEO}.
Paleo take on a classic. Sloppy Joes for even your pickiest eater!
