Sloppy joe ..mmmm.........

Today we had a fall festival held at my sister-in-laws house today for the children of our church.  The food for it was planned before I began to change my life.  I was the one bringing hotdogs and sloppy joe.  I bought the hotdogs from sams club.  I researched and made a recipe for sloppy joe that was healthy.  It went over well.  Nobody had bad complaints.  I told them it was a healthy version and everyone was fine with eating that.  Some used it as topping to the hot dog.

This recipe was made for a large group outing and you can break it down as needed.

Carrots, raw [Includes USDA commodity food A099]
5.0  x  1 large (7-1/4" to 8-/1/2" long) (72g)
