Sunday Dinner April 12th

It's the nicest day of the year here in MA. The sun is shining and the temperature is around 60F for the first time since Thanksgiving week.

I'm planning a meatloaf and Caesar salad for dinner tonight. This meatoaf recipe is a conversion of an Armenian recipe for seasoned ground lamb cooked on a skewer (luleh kebab). It's the meatloaf recipe SO likes best of the ones I make.

What's planned for your table?

My son and I are making fresh ground hamburger today.
That is if I ever get off my tush and get things set up.

So it's going to be Grilled burgers. Garlic fries.Salad.Deviled eggs if I have the time.

If your with me that's great. If not. Get out of my way.

I'm playing with a roasted leek, smoked sweet red pepper, chicken lasagna. Not sure how it's going to turn out. In my mind, it tastes great. And a green salad as the side.

I made a monster and a half meatloaf. They came out wonderful. I'll probably have a vegetable later, maybe asparagus in garlic butter

The reason for the monsterous meatloaves (a double batch) is that I take the leftovers and slice for the freezer (easy dinner, no dishes to wash), but a single batch just didn't make enough of those freezer dinners.

Sometimes I cook, sometimes I don't feel like doing all the cleanup, so a tried and true microwave dinner that always tastes good is the ticket.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

Looks good, Wyshie!

I picked up some eggplant hummus, whole wheat pita bread, and smoked gouda at TJ's yesterday. I think I'll just nibble on that, cut up a mango, and call it good.

Andy, it sure is nice to hear that you're having such good weather.

I realized after reading through this thread, that I haven't had meatloaf in quite a while. Sounds good.
