Manwich or Seasoning Packet?


We had sloppy Joes last night and they were, "SLOPPY."

Growing up, my family always made sloppy joes with the seasoning packet. While in Arizona last month, my mother made them with Manwich. Suddenly one less step to one of my favorite dinners. I found out what I was missing out on as a child.

Are you a Manwich or make it from scratch with a seasoning packet and tomato paste kind of person?

Either, or. Lately, I go for what's easiest.

We actually just had Sloppy Joes for camping, and to make it easy I bought the canned sauce. It was Von's generic, and it was gross! Maybe Manwich is better. I have a good recipe for homemade Sloppy Joes. Maybe I'll post it on my blog!

How do you get your girls to eat. Maili has about 3 things she'll eat. Getting kind of tired of it!

I'm with you on the eating thing with Haley. That's why she is soooo skinny. She eats 3 things too. Milk, fruit snacks and more milk. Maya out eats her hands down!

My family likes the tomato paste and seasoning packet sloppy joes. We have never try the Manwich. But it sounds like is worth a try! :-)

That's so funny because growing up, my mom would also make it with a seasoning packet. Jeff introduced me to the manwich and we've been hooked ever since. We actually like the "barbeque flavored" manwich sauce too! We still call them sloppy "Ethan's" because that's the only way we can get them to eat them. Maya looks adorable in that picture! (She actually reminds me of Shawn)

I've never tried Manwich, but I'm always looking for easy and tasty meals. I'll have to give it a try sometime.
