Our weekdays are so busy with the kids off to school and our work day filled our afternoons get even busier with after school activities. Even our youngest who is now three, her days are filled with park playdates and preschool. Our oldest started horseback riding so she’s discovering how much work it is to ride a horse, just as the sun goes down each week she gets to ride her favorite horse, Bella. Our kids are involved in so many after school activities during the week that when they get home at night and it’s time for dinner, they’re ready to eat!I like to start the week off with as little chaos as possible. As we settle into our busy weekday routine after a fun filled weekend the one thing I don’t want to stress about is dinner. One meal I know everyone in our family will agree with is Manwich. Manwich is a hearty sauce with a sweet and tangy taste and it also has the kid-stopping power, as your children will need both hands to enjoy this messy-licious treat, keeping them away from video games or texting! For our girls it’s always a hit Plus, there is no meat in Manwich!
That’s right, it’s a great tasting meal that can also be meatless. I just used my favorite plant based meat and add in Manwich. It’s partly the reason why my kids have no idea that they’re vegetarians too. Most of what they eat is meatless and it’s nice that with Manwich they can still get that delicious dinner. With our Monday’s being chaotic I can appreciate how easy Manwich is because all I have to do is heat our plant based “meat” and add in the sauce and top with bell peppers and onions. When I think of my favorite childhood dinners I always think of messy sloppy joes, even if we go meatless I think it’s still fun to create those same memories with our girls. I hope to spend our Monday nights eating together, and enjoying that fun family meal without all the stress.
