Remember the chorus of Adam Sandler’s classic SNL hit, Lunchlady Land? Well for some inexplicable reason it got stuck in my head yesterday, inciting an oddly intense craving for a sloppy joe (slop, sloppy joe). And that’s why we recommended it for today’s lunch, or in case you missed it, tonight’s dinner.
A 100% American creation, this ground beef and ketchup amalgamation needs little else than a single pan and a burger bun to send you right back to nostalgic memories of the school lunch line, hoping those mealtime heros, the lunchladies, didn’t run out of tots before you got there. If there isn’t a single joint in town slinging an old-school ruined-shirt-in-a-bun, make one yourself.
