Bison Sloppy Joes

When my daughter actually asks me to cook I get so excited! She is almost seventeen and having any time with her is very rare these days. I know she is on the typical teenager diet right now, eating when it’s convenient and usually consisting of lots of junk food, so I get even more eager to cook something I know she will get nutrients from.

She and her bfriend requested Sloppy Joes. I do not cook from packages preferring not to add unwanted sodium or other mystery ingredients to my food. These are very simple to make even with out the package and it’s easy to sneak a few healthy veggies without them knowing!
