Welcome to #BudgetMeals !

I’m happy to be hosting our Festive Foodies Budget Meals event!
Easy, inexpensive meals are always on my menu. I feel it’s great to splurge once in a while. I don’t live by mac and cheese alone! Although mac and cheese is inexpensive AND comforting. Win, win in my book!
A good BBQ is in store this week. Chicken is my choice for protein.
Chicken Sloppy Joes
If you’re not in the mood for chicken, that’s okay. This recipe can be made with any ground meat.

Ground chicken is often a good buy out of the ground meats in the case. I love beef and make it often. Ground turkey appears in a lot of dinners too.
Chicken Sloppy Joes
I use a tomato paste base. A bit sweet with brown sugar. A bit smoky with smoked salt and smoked paprika. All balanced out with Worcestershire and red wine vinegar.
Pile it high on a soft roll or Kaiser roll for a tasty treat!
