Sloppy Joe Mac and Cheese

 
 
 
Mac and Cheese has always been my favorite food! Since I was a child and it is my comfort food! Luckily I married a man who likes it and me enough to put up with my Mac and Cheese addiction. My sister Jessica always makes fun of me and how much I love it! Also, my mom makes the best sloppy joes on the planet earth, so yet another comfort food. Lisa also loves sloppy joes, and she’s awesome so that means I’m not crazy. Enjoy this twist that combines the two!
