I can't eat heavy tomato-ey things like sloppy joes anymore (even homemade) and certainly cannot eat the ones out of the can that start with "M", horrendous indigestion. So, the closest thing I can eat to a SJ is this.

Around here, they are called Manwiches. If I said we are having sloppy Joe's for dinner, they would look at me crossed eyed as they have no idea what a sloppy Joe is.
True.

Lucky you Addie and the others that have fond memories of school cafeteria food.
My memory is that it was not fit for human or animal consumption.
I hated the food in the cafeteria.
Once I got into high school I either went home for lunch or to a fast food joint.

That wouldn't fly here in Boston. All school doors are locked in the morning and if you leave the building before the end of the school day, you will be denied readmittance to the school and miss all of your afternoon classes. And the doors are manned by an armed security.

Not when we were growing up, Addie...we had an open campus in High School and no one ever thought (or had to think) about locking us in. It's a different world out there now.

Our high school still has open campus. There is usually a patrol car somewhere between the exit of the high school and the entrance to the main road though, to make sure the kids aren't speeding when they leave campus.

PDT/PDE Sloppy Joes

When I was a kid, we lived across the street from the elementary school, and two blocks from the high school. We were expected to go home for lunch, but when there were favorite things on the cafeteria menu, we could stay there and eat. Took a lot of begging at times. My great aunt, a fabulous cook and baker, was also a lunch lady when I was in elementary school.

Nowadays, we have to use an employee badge to get into any school, or the secretary has to buzz you in. How times have changed.

At some of our HS over in Roxbury, the kids have to go through metal detectors and they have Boston Police Patrolling the corridors. I am so glad I don't have any kids in school now.

Don't forget the must have garnish sides for sloppy joes, red radishes and sweet gherkin pickles.

We had no lunch ladies either. All food came from home in a brown paper bag from 1st through 12th grade. I walked by the public high school smelling the wonderful aromas on my way to my beautiful little school on the hill.

I started my education going home for lunch and returning 45 minutes later. Then off to a different school and home was too far, so cafeteria time. My first day in one they served Indian Pudding. I tried one small mouthful. After that I couldn't even sit at a table with anyone eating it.

ground beef, onion, recipe, tomato soup

PDT/PDE Sloppy Joes Everyone who know me knows that when I can, I enjoy making extravagant food. But those who really know me, know that I also love simple food. Take Sloppy Joe's for instance. I have three, go-to recipes for this simple dish. Oh, and what do PDT/PDE stand for, you ask. Pretty Darned Tasty, and Pretty Darned Easy. Here are the two PDT/PDE versions. The first is DW's idea of the perfect Sloppy Joe: Ingredients: 1 lb. Ground Beef 1 can Campbell's Tomato Soup 1/2 tsp. salt. Brown the ground beef, salt it, mix in the soup, serve on whole wheat burger buns. The first time she made them, I was skeptical. But you know, they aren't half bad. My PDT/PDE version: Ingredients: 1 lb. Ground Beef 1 can Campbell's Tomato Soup 1 sweet yellow onion, coarsely chopped 1/2 tsp. salt. 2 dashes cloves 2 tbs. Lee & Perrin's Worcestershire Sauce Saute the onion in butter, but not quite tender all the way through. While the onions are cooking, brown the ground beef and season with the salt. When the meat is browned, combine the onions, beef, and tomato soup. Stir until well mixed. Add the ground cloves, and Worcestershire sauce. Stir until well combined. This is better.:yum: [B]My best Sloppy Joe recipe, not PDE, or PDQ (pretty darned quick), but very PDT.[/B] Chief Longwind's Sloppy Joe's Ingredients: 1 4 oz. can tomato paste 1 6 oz can Tomato Sauce 1 12 oz. can dark red kidney beans clove minced garlic medium yellow onion, diced 3 heaping tbs. chopped green pepper 1/4 cup dark brown sugar (for Diabetics, substitute an equal amount of Splenda brand sweetener and a tsp. of molasses) 1 tsp. Chili Powder tsp. Salt 1 tbs. Worcestershire Sauce 1 bay leaf, crumbled 2 tbs. olive oil 1 lb. ground beef Place ground beef into a 12 inch covered frying pan and place over medium heat. While the pan is warming, add the olive oil to a 1 quart sauce pan and apply medium heat. Add the garlic, onion, and bay leaf to the oil and saute until the onion turns translucent. Add the remaining ingredients, stir until well blended, cover and turn down heat to simmer. Lift the lid from the ground beef and break up the meat into bite sized chunks. Lightly salt the meat, stir, and cover. Check the meat and stir the sauce every five minutes until the meat is cooked through. Drain the meat into a suitable bowl and place the juice in the refrigerator for later use. Combine the meat and sauce and serve over hamburger buns. There used to be a lady on DC who called herself Crewsk. She purchased the cookbook that this recipe was put into. She reported back to me (because I asked her how she liked the cookbook) that she grew up hating sloppy joes. She had only had the store-bought sauce kind. She tried my recipe and fell in love with sloppy joes. Her husband took some to work and shared with his co-workers. She said that from then on, for several weeks, she was bombarded with requests for more of those sloppy joes. Yeh, my head swelled just a bit.:rolleyes: So there you have it, very easy, easy, and more complex, but all yummy on a Saturday afternoon. Seeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North 3 stars 1 reviews
