In all my years cooking, I never had success with meatloaf. I shopped the other day for a lean meatloaf package of meat, I figured this would keep the grease around it down and it did.

I followed a basic online recipe, substituted onion flakes for chopped onion, added 3 hot cherry peppers and a habanero from the garden. Shook some adobo into the mix. Served with egg noodles and gravy, salad on the side.

The next one I make will be turkey and chorizo, plan to add a Knorr vegetable soup packet, hot peppers again and use panko bread crumbs.

My MIL always brings us stuff when she goes to Costco. This time it was a box of veggie burgers hmm...They aren't the kind that pretend they are real bleeding meat, the ingredients sound a lot like falafel so, we will be giving those a try. Fried pickle slices on the side to satisfy a recent craving. I know, I know... I think its mostly an Okie thing, but at least I don't drown them in Ranch.

.
I use half ground pork and half beef or goat, and put the pan into another pan with an inch of water in the bottom, then cover it with aluminum foil and bake it for a long time. THEN I drain the fat out, uncover it, put ketchup or bbq sauce on and bake it a little more

made Turkish pizza ( with lamb) yesterday

today chicken and dumplings, it's pouring outside and cold , yuck, not even officially fall yet.

Bottom round roast in the crock pot with sweet potatoes, onions, and an excellent red wine sauce. Peanut butter cookies for dessert.

I was already thinking about making meatloaf and reading all the posts sealed it. I too use ground beef and pork as a base with grated onions, bell pepper, egg, panko (soaked in milk), and seasonings. Kansas City style BBQ sauce and green bell pepper slices on top.

Garlic mashed potatoes with gravy and cooked beets to go with it.

A meatloaf pan is is the best improvement you can make no matter the recipe. This is my favorite because its a very high quality bread pan.

I had one like that but it was gold, lost it in the fire. Lately, I have just been making free-formed loaves and cooking them in a glass backing dish.

I've never cared for meatloaf and I've tried several recipes over the years. Turkey and chorizo sounds awesome though! I might have to give that a try.

I've made falafel patties and used them to make burgers. They're one of my favorites actually. Let us know how the veggie burgers turn out.

It's very frowned on for me to make meatloaf in the house. On the grill, no pan, shaped like a bread loaf or in a roll the diameter of good burger buns.

Oh and surprise tonight was leftovers.

Baked pasta tonight. Oddly enough, I wasn't in the mood for pasta, but it hit the spot anyway.

It was such a rainy gloomy day that I was too gloomy myself to cook much.

So we had left over cheeseburgers from Wendy's, corn on the cob, fresh jalepenos- (sliced down the middle with a slice of Monterey jack cheese that I stuck in the toaster oven to melt the cheese), and ruffled potato chips.

The veggie burgers were a little chewy, they were cooked in the oven per pkg instructions, might need to tweak that process.

Tonight my MIL is coming to visit and she's bringing chili, I'm making a pan of cornbread and an apple cake with burnt sugar frosting.

Me cholesterol is a little high so Im trying to eat less red meat. Fridays are my steak night so I grilled me a couple of thin cut ribeyes, made some patacones (fried plantains) with the help of me daughter, made some Aji (south american hot sauce), yellow rice and some radishes topped off with red wine. Im basking in the afterglow right now.
I saw that some folks made meat loaf above, I make a mean meatloaf but I think my kids got burnt out on my flavor, spoiled.... they should been raised in the 60s and 70s to really appreciate stuff. Happy weekend all.

My parents and I got fish fry tonight.

Dad ordered it and I went to pick it up (it was to go). I knew that places were allowing people to dine in again but I thought there was supposed to be some kind of capacity limit.

Not only was every single table FULL, there were more than a dozen people waiting to be seated. And we just had a cluster of virus cases the past week (over 100).

It made me a little uncomfortable. I guess we'll hold off on doing that again for a while.

Big ol' fat bean and chorizo burritos tonight. Using up the last of the refried beans and spanish rice. Either the chilies I used were super hot this time, or I'm turning into a sissy as I get older. I'm still sniffling!

Try fried cucumbers --much better than pickles (imo). Dredge in cornmeal and salt.
Also fried squash.
