Coming of Age: The Mr Manwich Blogiversary

MrManwich.com is two!

Three years ago I started a group on Facebook to try and convey my love of turkey, bacon, stuffing, cranberry, mayo Christmas sandwiches: The Christmas Sandwich Appreciation Society.

A year later, when my beloved Christmas sandwiches reappeared in stores, it was suggested by some members of The Society that I should start a blog declaring my love for all that is manwich: MrManwich.com was born.

So where are we now, my sandwich brethren?

Thursday past marked the second blogiversary of the date I started mrmanwich.com. 

I can't say I've posted as much as I would have liked to, but my love for sandwiches and other foodstuffs I would class as a 'manwich', is unfaltering: I've been lucky enough to eat some pretty killer stuff over the past two years including the incredible "Mr Manwich Special" cake at the top and bottom of this post crafted by our very talented family friend, Gillian McGarry, and gifted to me by Mama Manwich for my birthday earlier this year. 

This might seem like a bit of a redundant post, but I wanted to take some time to thank all the friends, family members and others who have shown support for the blog and @MrManwich Twitter since I started putting stuff out there, and let you know I'm just only getting started...

If anyone would like to get in touch with Gillian (based in Largs) with any bespoke cake enquiries, drop her a line at gmcgarry[at]hotmail[dot]com: her work is incredible.

Here's to the next two years of eating!

May the manwiches be with you.
