When I was in elementary school, they served sloppy joes every 3 weeks or so. Good gawd, were they awful, I just ate the bun and tossed the rest. Nothing like low grade USDA crap meat, no flavor and dry as hell.
Elementary schools lunches suck. They serve malk. ;)
One of the things we used to have when I was growing up and haven't had in years since then for whatever reason. We've had it a couple of times in the past year or so since we started making it again. It's good to have every once in a while.
I think i've only had Manwich a couple of times in my life. I remember having sloppy joes in the lunchroom though.
Speaking of pre-processed meats, there was a flat rectangular roast beef slices thing that I used to love as a kid but forget the name of.
this? chipped beef made with these is another thing we had all the time as a kid that I haven't had in 15 years.
Could it be these?
Used to eat these as a kid, but haven't touched them in 25 years.
