Sloppy Joes

Have you ever heard of Sloppy Joes? Well ,I have no idea what it's until hubby show me what he made on his plate. As usual I cook my hubby favourite meat sauce for him once a month. He love my style of meat sauce with his angel hairs pasta.If I cook a big pot of pasta sauce for him, I don't have to cook his dinner for the next 3 days. Coincidentally, last Saturday ,I bought a dozen dinner roll on sale . The Deli usually sell bagel and dinner roll at dozen and cheaper after 3 pm.I guess they bake daily and want to finish up before closing. I told hubby he have to finish all the rolls fast before it's goes bad or moldy. I guess after eating meat sauce with pasta for 3 continual days,he get bored.Suddenly he create a Sloppy Joes and show it to me.He told me it's American classic snack!! He been eating Sloppy Joes every meal until all the dinner roll run out!! He said it's the best Sloppy Joes he had in his life so far !! Since I can't eat beef due to religion reason,I can't judge my cooking but I trust what he said!! If you try this snack,let me know what you think,OK?

Ingredients for Sauce:

1 stick butter ( 4 oz or 8 tbsp)

2 bottle Marinara or Meat flavor sauce

6-8 cloves garlic (sliced)

Yes, I heard of it. It's called sloppy Joe because it's very sloppy to eat, perhaps Joe came from the guy who invented it. Looks good, look like your hubby is easily satisfied as long as you give him his American meal. ;)
