wonderful weather here today too. e-mail from my hubby says he
is taking care of dinner.

not sure what he will make but i would guess it is meat meat and more
meat. anything he makes will be fine it is the thought that counts.

excellent weather here also, partly sunny, cool breezes, low humidity. Been in the kitchen most of the morning baking stuff for a genealogical escape I am planning for the end of the week. I like to take my own food when on road trips. Have made whole wheat raspberry muffins, herb rolls, walnut and date whole wheat cookies so far. Have some ground beef thawing in the frig and have not decided how to turn that into tonights dinner. Have a butternut squash baking right now, so that will be on the menu.

I use cubed steak, fry it in the morning & then put it in the crock pot with really thin gravy. By supper time, the gravy is thickened & the meat is really tender. I have made it with hicken & boneless porkchops also, I just don't put those in the crock pot.

I changed my mind on the mashed potaotes, we're having rice instead.

Hi Nonni, welcome to DC! I've never heard of making a meatloaf in a crockpot.

We're having buritos tonight, stuffed with chicken, refried beans, rice, onions, and bell peppers, and a bit of red pepper flakes, and some salsa on the inside and outside and topped with cheese. Think I'll eliminate the rice from my burito because it's just too heavy for me with all the other fillings.
