THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Always have sunglasses with you. They are great for when you can’t be bothered to put make up on.
These days the sun really affects my eyes. There are times when I’m driving that the sun will almost blind me so I definitely need to wear sunglasses. The ones I have fit right over my regular glasses and really make a difference. There are also times I wear a hat with a brim along with the glasses to protect my eyes and provide some shade. I have two pairs. One I like to leave in the car and the other in the house for when I go outside to do the yard work.
They say we won’t need any sunglasses today as it’s supposed to rain. Another day to stay inside and get the housework done. It’s als my day to cook for the weekend. I decided to make meatloaf as cold meatloaf makes for a wonderful sandwich. This is not my regular meatloaf recipe.
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 c. shredded carrots
1 c. chopped green pepper
2 eggs slightly beaten
1 1/2 c. soft breadcrumbs
1 c. cottage cheese, drained
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp poultry seasoning
2 lbs ground beef
3/4 c. catsup
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 tbsp. dry mustard.
in a small saucepan cook onion, carrots and green pepper in a small amount of boiling water until tender. Drain.
Combine with eggs bread crumbs cottage cheese and poultry seasoning. Add beef and mix well.
Pat unto a 9 by 5 laaf pan. Bake uncovered in a 350 degree oven for 1 1/2 hours. Pour off excess liquid.
In a saucepan combine catsup, mustard and brown sugar. Heat through Serve meatloaf with catsup topping.
I have never made this recipe before but the addition of vegetables, makes it sound like a meal in one. We’ll see how it turns out.
Thankfully I have plenty of pictures of the babes in sunglasses. Good to see they are protecting their eyes.
Have a Super Saturday!
