H ran over to the grocery store and picked up 4#'s of meat and we are going to make meat loaf for today......and some for the freezer for several more days!
Onions, celery, bell peppers, and a handful of yellow tomato's are chopped and sauted before I assemble the meat loaf. H bought one of those copper skillets that you see being run over by a car in the commercials.....he loves it!
Salt and paper is added to 2#'s of meat.....2 eggs......a can of tomato sauce, and about a cup and a half of crushed crackers. I make it in two batches because my largest bowl will only hold a batch at a time.
I put my meatloaf in a very large pan....top it with ketchup and bake for about an hour at 375 or until done.
While the meat loaf is cooking, I am going to set the little bar at the end of the island. I am using paper place mats......my go to!
H almost refuses to eat on paper plates, so I am using our every day dishes.
I cook 10#'s of potatoe's at a time and mash them, so there is always a bag or two in the freezer.
H is having some of the roasted and diced hot peppers that he picked this morning with his meat loaf.
All the hamburger meat used for the meat loaf was less than $8 and we have enough to serve two for about 10 meals.
