Sloppy Joes

          Everyone Loves Sloppy Joes

This is a true all-American treat. The Sloppy Joe was invented in 1964 by Thurston Milan near St.Sloppy Hibiscus, South Dakota. Before 1964 Milan was locally famous for inventing a way to turn gasoline into water—it never really caught on and made him rich. But when he named the Sloppy Joe after himself—wow did it catch on. School Cafeterias everywhere started serving them and some of the kids ate them, sometimes.

Ah Yes, Sloppy Joes the recipe. Get the big ol’ black skillet out of the cupboard, put it on the stove and heat it to 700 degrees. Toss in the meat, it should be ground meat of some kind but beef, elk and any meat that tastes a lot like chicken will work. Do not use fish as fish is for sissies and should only be eaten when the in-laws take you to Red Lobster on your anniversary. Chop up a couple of handfuls of onions and toss them in the skillet as the meat browns. If the kitchen starts to fill up with smoke pour a little diet soda into the meat and onion mix. If you don’t have a diet soda handy you might have to use olive oil, Pam or some of that other sissy Emerald crap. When the meat is cooked good mix in the following secret ingredients:  Ketchup, Mustard, Pepper, sugar, salt and a touch of Jack Daniels, stir and serve on white bread smothered in Velveeta— with chips on the side ---delicious. Note do not put pickles, lettuce, mushrooms or any crap like that on these great tasting sloppies.


  Happy Eatin!

So, I stumbled on your blog and enjoyed the anti-sissism attitude! As and old cook in South Dakota I can appreciate the simplicity. Will be back to read more when I have a bit more time...
