Nana's Sloppy Joe Recipe
These are a little different type of a sloppy joe. This recipe was promoted by Campbell Soup Company in the 50's as it features their chicken gumbo condensed soup. It has since morphed into many different versions but I think this is close to the original. I vividly remember the first time I had these as it was at a 4H meeting when I was probably about ten years old.

1 pound hamburger meat with
1 medium size finely diced onion.

1 can 10 3/4 oz size of Campbell's chicken gumbo soup, undiluted
1 tbsp. yellow mustard

2 tbsp. ketchup. I do not think ketchup was in the original version and if you decide it needs it go lightly as this is not supposed to be the tomato version of sloppy joe.
1/8 tsp. black pepper

Taste for salt as for many the soup is enough salt-add more if you think needed. Simmer to let thicken a bit, but again it is supposed to be "sloppy."

Thanks for the neat recipe exchange letter, I love it! I just recently became interested in a new way of cooking that involves preparing meals for a month at a time. I was wondering if anyone else had tried it and if they had
any good recipes to share. Thanks again!!

My husband and I do a lot of RV travelling and I do most of my cooking in the microwave. Does anyone have some good recipes for microwave dinners?

I would like a recipe for Ann Landers Meatloaf. I ate it once and thought it was very good but do not have the recipe for it. I would appreciate anyone that would share this recipe with me.
