What's for Dinner Tuesday the 11th?

I'm making a meatloaf from an Armenian recipe using a beef lamb mixture, tomato and seasonings. This mixture is primarily made into kebabs and grilled. I usually make it into burgers. I decided to make a meatloaf out of it this time. We''l see how well it translates.

Baked potato and a salad will complete the meal.

When I make enchiladas I split it in 2. We can only eat 1 enchilada at a time because they are so filling. LOL So it is always a replay. Tonight family will have replay enchiladas and I may have chicken broth with carrots, celery, onions and rice.

Still have some Mexican shredded pork in the freezer from a big cook awhile ago, will heat it up with some Penzey's Rojo seasoning, green chilis, other spices, and have pork tacos and Spanish rice.

It must be meatloaf night. Not feeling well and the only thing that sounds good is meatloaf. Mine is made with beef and venison and a hint of nutmeg along with the other usual suspects. Probably will have mashed potatoes and broccoli. Wheat rolls are already made.

It is just Dad and I tonight and both of us are not eating much lately so I was thinking about putting on a pot of soup. It will be chicken or beef, not quite sure yet.

That sounds good Andy! Over the holidays I wanted to make tourtiere but DH can't have the pastry and I have experimented with gluten free pastries but they get too soggy from the meat. So, I experimented with turning it into a meatloaf. It was a little dry, but I think I know what to do for next time. The taste was really authentic though, we all loved it.

Let me know how yours turns out.

Hi LP, it'll be interesting. Moisture isn't an issue with this mix. I have to add bread crumbs for the burgers.

I'll let you know how it turns out.

UPDATE - I think I will make family the enchilada replay and I will make a small trial run meatloaf. I want to try out a new recipe idea.

This serves 2 purposes:
1 - family can try it and still have something to eat if they don't like it and I don't have to deal with the crap!(they don't take to changes easily!! You shoulda heard the reaction to the new chili you'da thought I killed someone!! BUT they loved it the next day YIKES). I like to try new things and don't feel like having a vote or backlash..

2 - I really don't want enchiladas 2 days in a row.

All the talk of meatloaf makes me want to make one but alas, all my ground beef is frozen. I have some hamburger patties in the freezer so I think I may broil those, fry up some bacon and have bacon cheese burgers. Possibly do some kind of veggies.

Hmm, that sounds good jabbur, I may do the same.

BTW I freeze my 1 lb portions of hamburger in a baggie, and smash it flat to make a big pattie. Defrosts in no time that way to use for meatloaf, or whatever.

We are using up the leftover meatballs and sauce. Spaghetti and meatballs for SO, meatball sub with melted cheese for me. Green salad for us both.
