Go ahead sing it. “Sloppy joe, sloppy sloppy joe.” Maybe nobody remembers that Adam Sandler song. It came out during his Saturday Night Live prime. I took 5 years of Spanish during junior high and high school, including AP Spanish. This is the extent of what I remember:
La papa del papá del Papa.
This means, “the Pope’s father’s potato.” I also remember the lyrics to the Sloppy Joe/Lunch Lady song. (Which aren’t even in Spanish, but one of my classmates, Melissa brought that Adam Sandler CD to class everyday and we listened to it while we were “working.” But you can see how hard I was studying and paying attention. Bless Señora White’s heart, she did not have a lot of classroom management skills.)
“Well, yesterday’s meatloaf is today’s sloppy joes.”
Good news, we aren’t going to reuse any cafeteria food in this recipe.
This recipe is ridiculously easy. It is kid friendly too. My kids love sloppy joes. Is that universal? I prefer to use ground turkey and nobody has ever called me on it. Do whatever you want. This is a great warm weather meal because you can send the kids outside to eat it. Then they don’t “sloppy joe” all over your floor
“Well me and sloppy joe got married. We got six kids and we’re doing just fine. Down in LunchLady Land.”
I really have no idea what that means. Just try the sloppy joes!
