I Think Four Is Enough (Philly Steak Sloppy Joes)

Those were the words uttered by the Brandon as he fixed is FOURTH sandwich of the evening.  What can I say...he's a growing boy. 

I just had one.  And some Easy Mac.  What up, easy mac.  They were three for 3$ at the Walgreen's and I just couldn't let a deal like that slip me by.  It was five points for a container of it; well worth it as far as I'm concerned. 

So what is this magical sandwich that made the future Mister want to eat not one, but four of them?  Why it's the Philly Steak Sloppy Joe.  With a cheese sauce.  Yeah, ya heard.  It was pretty good. 



I'm going to give you this recipe in two different sections.  So look alive...
