I think we all have certain meals that bring back fond memories. For me, it's usually the simplest meal that brings back the most memories. Sloppy joes always make me smile. Whenever I am at the store and pass the canned goods and see Manwich on the shelf, I am taken back to my childhood. Seriously- what is a sloppy joe without Manwich?
Growing up in a large family, we didn't have a lot of money. My mom was really creative and knew how to make food stretch. However, when my parents had extra money- they would splurge on a special dinner or treats. One of those special dinners was Manwich sloppy joes. As kids, we would get so excited and chow down. Probably the only time we didn't fight at the dinner table. Ha.
For me,all my sloppy joes are made with Manwich. It's the brand I know and I like the taste. It's familiar. It's my childhood. It's hearty, tangy, sweet and there's no meat in it. Plus free of artificial flavors and preservatives. What's more kid friendly than a sloppy joe? Fast and ready for a Monday meal solution! There are so many unique recipes you can make with Manwich.
