A GREAT dinner tonight!

  1. The wife asked me to make dinner tonight since she has to work the graveyard shift again at the hospital this evening. Problem was, what to fix? We haven't gone grocery shopping for a few days, so the cupboard was kinda bare. Fortunately, the fertile mind of the "master chef" was hard at work . . . :D

    I decided on a meatloaf, but not just any meatloaf. I started with 3 lbs of hamburger, mixed in a cup of Shooter45's special BBQ sauce, added two chopped peppers (one medium, one HOT), a little salt, some bread crumbs, a few Quaker Oats, some sage, a little salt, a little pepper, tossed in some red onion, then plopped the load into a baking pan and cooked it for about an hour and a half, uncovered. When it was done (170 degrees internal), I coated the outside with a mixture of ketchup, dry mustard, liquid mustard, and brown sugar. Put it back into the oven for another 10 minutes. Trust me folks, you've never had meatloaf like that! Scrumptious!

    Oh, and I also made up some smashed taters to go with it, along with some fresh sliced cucumber from the garden, soaked in wine vinegar and oil with chopped red onion. That lent a nice spice to the meal.

    I think I ate too much. :eek::D

    Ok now if you promise not to tell everyone I will let you into one of my secret recipes. What with the management being in Brasil for months at a time I have often, very often satisfied, no filled the kids with my Beans Surprise.

    Per Plate: Two slices of toast, on one place baked beans, on the other two fried eggs.

    Hit's the spot!

    Meatloaf sammiches for lunch next day. :):):) When I was raising the kids by myself, before FirstInLine came in to save us, I made many a pan of meatloaf. I became the master of one-pot meals.
