Turkey Meatloaf. My best friend introduced me to skinny taste and tried out this recipe and said it came out good, so I wanted to try it too. I have never made meatloaf before and boy is it easy! I am a fan. I doubled the recipe, made the girls their own in a cupcake pan (cooked it slightly too long and burned the edges) and I made ours in a bread pan and of course threw in half a tablespoon of cayenne (next time I will throw in a full tbsp). Gotta have that spice! Adding this to the home cooked meals regularly based on how yummy and fast this is!
Mashed Cauliflower. This accompanied out meatloaf. We had our friend Jun over this night, he comes over once a week for dinner and to share life, and while he was enjoying the mash, we asked him, “Did you know this isn’t potatoes?” Well, there is one in it, but it was mostly cauliflower. He was surprised, but not, since it is our house after all. I loved mashed cauliflower! You just steam a bunch (we used two heads) until it’s soft, along with one potato (or two), and then mash it all together. Throw in some smart balance, garlic, chives, and salt and pepper to taste and oh man… bomb diggity. If you haven’t tried it, you must!
We had only one home cooked meal this week because either we had leftovers or went out to eat to celebrate their first day of school. We still have more left overs of meatloaf, so I know what I am going to be eating for lunch. Can’t wait! I’m hungry just thinking about it.
I’ve never tried cooking with a crock pot, but I want to. Though I need to get a crock pot first. Any of you use a crock pot? I would love to hear some good recipes if you have any!
