Busy mom, quick and easy meal to feed the masses!

What a gorgeous Saturday in Central Ohio! Nothing better than a crisp fall day and Ohio State Buckeye football!  Since we are doing a night game tonight our house is bustling with the sounds of housework and lawn mowing.  Now my men are HUNGRY and want fed NOW! Nothing spells quick and easy more than soup and sandwiches that are filled with true "stick to your ribs" ingredients.

Lean ground beef and ground sausage are staples in my freezer.  Check out my earlier Blog about stocking a Fall Pantry for ideas on what to keep on hand for fast and easy meals.

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

3lbs ground beef browned and drained
3 18oz cans Manwich Bold Sloppy Joe Sauce
American Cheese slices
Toasted hamburger buns

You can imagine why I like this, just mix your meat and sauce, pile on the bun, add cheese and you need nothing but some lip smacking and a napkin to clean up your saucy smiled family and friends!

Sausage Chili Soup

1lb pork sausage browned
4 cups beef broth
29oz can tomato sauce
14oz can diced tomatoes
11 oz can Delmonte Summer Crisp corn
21 oz can Bush's Grillin Beans, Black Bean Fiesta flavor
2/3 cup orzo pasta

Use a pot to brown your sausage in, once brown add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a simmer for about 20mins or until orzo is soft.  Then serve with your Sloppy Joe's! 

What a great combination on a cool weekend day! It's fast and easy and your family will love it!
