So Simple

Sometimes it is just so simple, I miss it. A few weeks ago I was making a meatloaf and thought, Why not make two and freeze one for later? Better yet, when I make something that can be frozen, I should do that every timeI put two meals “up” in the freezer that week.

IMG_9598It is just a simple meatloaf made with a pound of ground beef, an egg, two slices of bread crumbled up, chopped onion and green pepper with a package of beefy onion soup mix all mixed together and baked. I then boiled some red potatoes and mashed those and put on top of the cooked meat loaf and covered it with cheese. I put it back into the oven to melt for about 10 minutes. When I doubled the recipe, one went into the freezer (already cooked) and one we had for dinner.

Tonight I added green beans for a side dish, and we sat down and watched the Seahawks loose, and had a wonderful dinner. Sometimes I forget having a prepared pantry is also having dinner waiting for you in the freezer.

  1. This almost missed my sights, and I am so glad I came back to see any missing blogs. I am retired, so you can guess my age. The very first meal that I ever prepared as a young teenager was homemade meatloaf, topped with mashed potatoes and browned slightly before serving it. I also made creamed peas as a side, and that meal became one of my very favorites over the many years since. Thank you~
