Ragu Saucy Joes


Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Lunchbox. All opinions are my own.

Every weekend I sit down with a dry erase board and create a menu plan for the entire week. Sometimes I just sit there and stare at the board and it can take me some time to figure out some new meal ideas. I find that we are often creatures of habit and every week we will see the same meals on our table, it can be hard to change things up and think of a new meal idea for your family.

I just don’t have a lot of time to figure out new dinner ideas, hardly have enough just to make the meals themselves.

This is why Walmart has created Meal Inspirations – an online destination that provides quick, easy and delicious recipe ideas for busy moms.

On Meal Inspirations, you can find everything from recipes for weeknight dinners, super bowl party food and you can even print coupons and deals for the ingredients that you need for the recipe.

One of the featured recipes, which has become a family favorite, is Ragu Saucy Joes. This fun twist on a classic and simple dinner menu turned the “Sloppy Joe” into something that feels like an entirely new meal.
