Hope your Spring is going good so far. The pollen has been a bear here but it still has been nice. I love this time of year. How about you?
I have to show you this picture I made of this little sweetie pie. Her name is Hoot.
No, I didn’t get a cat. As much as I would love one, it would be cruel to bring a cat into a house with 4 dogs.
I got to visit a friend in Richmond for a few days last week. She has 3 gorgeous, very sweet Himalayan cats and 3 tiny 1 week old kittens that Hoot’s mother had.
I have decided that the year 2012 is my year of travel. I love travelling but in the past I couldn’t do much of it.
This year, I went to Atlanta for a week in February. Blacksburg VA in March. Richmind VA last week. Next month, I will be taking the family to Disney World in Orlando for 6 days. In June, I’m going to New York City and I may be going back there in August too for a convention. Also sometime this year, I plan on visiting a good friend who recently moved to the Washington DC area.
Okay I’m sure you are probably bored with my ranting about travel so here is my weekly dinner menu:
Chicken Salad Sandwiches
Corn on the Cob
Fast Food Friday
Shish-ka-bob made with beef, mushrooms, onions, red, yellow, orange peppers
I’m going to tell you how I make my meat loaf. There is no real measurements involved as I just developed this recipe over the years of making meat loaf and never actually measured anything.
I mix a pound of very lean ground beef with a chopped onion, 2-3 stalks fo chopped celery, a few large chopped mushrooms, a few handfuls of oats (either quick cooking or old fashioned, it doesn’t matter), 2 eggs, a large squirt of mustard and catsup, and some spices (I usually use garlic salt, pepper, parsley, and a pinch of oregano). Sometimes I will add a can of drained, chopped tomatoes and if I do, I don’t add catsup.
Just mix it all together really well and put in your loaf pans. I usually have enough for 2 loaf pans so one I will wrap up and freeze for later. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour 20 minutes or until done.
Okay, hope everyone has a great week.
Do any of you have any plans to travel this year? If so, where are you going to go?
