Last night I made Pioneer Woman's recipe for Meatloaf. It is from her first book. And she featured it on her show on Saturday. Ree cooks foods that are very similar to foods that I grew up on. She makes a lot of things the way I make them too. But her meatloaf was different. I have made my meatloaf with bacon on top before, but only a couple of slices. And I have made a bbq sauce to glaze a meatloaf with before too. But the combination of both bacon and sauce, and using the bread soaked in milk, made this meatloaf wonderful! I give it two thumbs way up!! Here is what you are going to need.
I took a picture of the recipe in her book so I wouldn't have to type it out.
Then mix your sauce, which she calls tomato gravy. I call it bbq sauce. Pour about 1/3 on top of loaf.
I have been having a lot of yogurt and fresh fruit lately. I could live off fresh fruit! I layer yogurt, my favorite is Activia Peach, and then some fruit, some homemade granola, then more yogurt, fruit and granola. DELISH!!
Yesterday Jake and the girls came for a visit. We had a little lunch, and then set up the Wii Rock Bank game. We still need to fine tune the set up, but the kids had a blast.
Yesterday morning we woke up to more rain. Glorious rain! I went out to feed the chickens and noticed that the iris' I had so hoped would open up before Easter, but didn't, had opened.
I have made it a point to really take it easy this week, after all of the hard work in preparation for Easter here at our house. I have been a very good girl, and scheduled some doctor appointments. Not always fun, but necessary. I am having lunch with my pal Jae today. I had a wonderful lunch with a friend on Tuesday...thank you Maryrose. And hopefully by next week, I will be back at it on my DIY projects. The bathroom awaits paint. There is one more garden box to be built. Windows need washing, and well, it is endless really.
I hope you are having a great week....wherever you are.
