Let’s be honest, sometimes we just need simple, easy meals that don’t require a lot of thought.  Yesterday was one of those nights.  We had hiked for a little over an hour.  I was tired and I just needed easy.  Thankfully, I keep certain staples in the pantry.  One of those staples includes a can or two of sloppy joe sauce.  Of course, soy crumbles in the fridge or freezer are also important.  You can use them for all kinds of things, so I keep them around.

I found some soft rolls at a quick stop, which happily were vegan, so Sloppy Joes were on the menu.  I had to dress my crumbles up just a bit, because it makes dinner just a bit more special.  I finely diced and sauteed some onions and then added garlic to the pan before I threw the crumbles in.

After that it was only a few minutes before I poured the can of Sloppy Joe mix over the top and let it simmer on low until heated through.

I served them on the soft rolls I had come across with corn on the cob as a side.

Bruce teases me about how I dress up my corn, but I don’t even care.  It’s delicious with all theses spices!
