Dinner Tonight - January 11th and 12th

Last night I made meatloaf.  I used 1 lb. of ground turkey and 1 lb. of ground beef.  I always add a couple of shakes of onion powder to the meat along with bread or cracker crumbs or oatmeal (whatever I have on hand), some salt, two eggs, some milk and a couple of squeezes of ketchup and 1 small squeeze of mustard.  I bake it at 375 degrees for a little over an hour.  After I remove it from the oven I spread a glaze of 1/2 cup ketchup, 2 teaspoons mustard and 1/4 cup brown sugar.  Then I cover the meatloaf with foil while I get everything else on the table.  We also had scalloped potatoes, peas and a tossed salad.  For dessert we had brownies with a white frosting.

Dinner tonight was leftovers.  When I reheat the meatloaf I put it in a frying pan with about 1 tablespoon of butter and let it brown on both sides.  My family loves meatloaf and especially when it is leftover and I fry it in a pan. 

It is zero degrees and the wind chill has been below zero.  Meatloaf is just one of those comfort foods that tastes especially good on a cold winter evening.

As far as eating from the pantry and freezer, we're still going strong.

Your recipe for meatloaf sounds almost like mine except I make it into individual patties and the ones left get frozen for another day.

Martha thanks for the words of support you have been leaving on my blog xx
