Grandma Lill's Sloppy Joes

Another one of my Grandma Lill's famous farm recipes! This is my husband's favorite sloppy joe recipe of all time and best of all, it is super easy using ingredients you should already have in your pantry! It does call for a half a can of tomato soup, and if you are worried about using the other half with lunch the following day, you can always double the recipe and freeze what you don't eat. It heats up well over the stove or even in a crockpot another day. I always add some diced up tomatoes-they camouflage right in and the kids never notice! Make sure you add the celery too, it's just not the same without it!
