Sloppy joes, from scratch, based on a cross of this recipe and this one, minus the ketchup, but with a little extra brown sugar.

I was never a big fan of sloppy joes as a kid, but I suspect that’s because I only ever had the “Manwich” kind.  Troy and Evy are big fans though, so I made a big batch of these the other day, knowing that I wasn’t going to have much time to cook this week.  I especially like this recipe because I can sneak in extra veggies (I added a brick of Cascade Farms pureed winter squash), and the sweet taste masks their presence.
