Saturday night again! What does that mean to you? In our house it means Family Night!!
Sometimes Family Night consists of playing games. Sometimes Family Night is curling up on the sofa with some popcorn and a soda and watching a good movie! Family Nights have also consisted of going to a play, finding a new restaurant or visiting good friends.
Family Nights have been a favorite with us for many years!
Family Night also means special foods. Something quick and easy A food that can be eaten with your hands and no utensils! Fun Food!
This week our Family Night meal will be Sloppy Joes! I love them. I must admit, Sloppy Joes for us usually meant Manwich. I would be surprised to find that you have not tried this deliciousness in a can. Well, Manwich will never grace our door again! This crock pot recipe Rocks!
