Happy Monday night friends!
Well I made it through most the workday, and I can’t even explain to you how great it felt 🙂
Something to be said about accomplishing productive tasks throughout one’s day that really soothes the soul, at least for me!
When I got home I whipped up my long lost friend….
Strawberries, bananas, almond milk, coconut kefir & coconut oil make for one deelish spoonin’ adventure!
After some rest I got the items together for dinner tonight, takin’ it back to the old school (“cause I’m an old fool who’s so cool”… anyone? haha)
Yes friends, my first meat eating experience in 11 days….
And as usual, all measurements were just a bit of this plus a bit of that… so I’ll approximate for ya 🙂 And ignore the dried basil, I didn’t end up adding it (I’m so all over the place aren’t I?!?!)
- 1lb ground beef
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 onion, chopped finely
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 2 tblsp dijon
- 1 egg
- 1 tblsp Worcestershire
- 1 tblsp dried oregano
Mix using the squish and smoosh method – and yes, this is a messy adventure with the hands 😉
Then place into a small loaf pan, sprayed with cooking spray.
And now for the secret ingredient… Jessica would be so proud!
After 20 minutes in the oven at 425F and another 30 minutes at 375F, here you have it!
To go alongside this meaty adventure we kept things light with a salad
I ended up topping mine with hummus since me & vinegar based salad dressing are at war right now (throat hates anything acidic!) plus I just really don’t “do” creamy most of the time, something about it I don’t love. The hummus was great though! I had to pick off the tomatoes too haha, little buggers hurt 😛
Served up with some corn for good measure…
This stuff rocked! I haven’t had meatloaf since I don’t know when, it was sooo gooood 🙂
Alright, time to run! Our fave shows are on tonight competing with The Bachelor for attention… somehow I must manage to squeeze them both in (channel flippin’ like whoa? 😉 )
See you tomorrow and have a great night!
