Memory Meal with #ManwichMondays

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Manwich for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

undefinedA meal can be almost as good as a photo album. We tend to remember a lot of memories surrounded by food. Manwich is one of those foods for me. It brings back a flood of memories of my childhood. My mom worked nights and dad had to cook for us! Manwichwas the first food he made that wasn’t burned! We ate A LOT of Manwich until he learned to cook more. ReadySetEat enewsletter

As an adult I forgot about how good a sloppy joe could be. I got the 3 types of Manwich and decided to give it a try again! The original kind was on our plates first for a slumber party.  We ate it with potato chips and used some of the meat for a dip just like I used to as a kid. They all LOVED it! The next time I used the thick and chunky one for a quick meal before archery practice. Again the pan was cleaned completely! This kind was my favorite.

The third kind was the bold. I decided to get creative and make a new twist on an old favorite my grandma used to make. Manwich Porcupine Meatballs! They came out FABULOUS!  The kids ate them straight out of the pan without utensils!  These are a great appetizer or serve them with a side of rice and veggies for a complete meal! Its also a kid-friendly recipe that the kids will love to eat and help make! There are more recipes at Manwich Mondays Recipes
