On a good day. . . I love to have dinner in the crock pot by noon.
Today at lunchtime, I knew I was runnin’ out of steam and it would be best to get dinner going soon. Thankfully, I had thawed ground beef & ground venison in the refrigerator and I decided to look on line for a meat loaf recipe to make in the crock pot. Sure enough. . . I found one.
Here it is:
1 1/2 pds lean ground beef
1C finely chopped onion
1 C softly torn bread crumbs
*(I used dried bread crumbs and would use the soft bread next time)
2 tsp. prepared mustard
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp dried parsley flakes
1 C ketchup, divided
Spray crockpot with cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, onion, egg, mustard, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, and 1/2C ketchup.
Serves 6. . . I doubled it for our family.
Deeelicious!. . . served with potatoes and carrots from the garden. We love this time of year and the many fresh veges to choose from.
Even this 8 year old liked it! But hey, it didn’t contain tomatoes or mushrooms so I was off to a good start.
And there’s our blue eyed Bengal, Lucy.
We’ve been enjoying our new pet. . .yes, even me :)
I snapped these photos today with the front door open. . . natural light. . .no flash needed. Edited with Picnik.
(I actually got a shot of Little A smiling. . .not so easy to do. Too bad it’s out of focus.)
P.S. I had my yearly mammogram today. Have you had yours? If not, just do it. It’s painless, simple &fast.
