What a weekend.
It was cold and rainy, like I mean REALLY rainy. So I wanted comfort food this weekend. Looking through the freezer to see what I had on hand, I discovered some ground meat. Though I was sore tempted to make some delicious meatballs or, even better, burgers, I went with something down home and super comfort. Meatloaf. But you can’t have meatloaf without mashed potatoes and gravy, oh and I guess you can throw some veggies in there too…
If you’re not serving many people with this recipe and want to have a make-ahead meal, you can always divide the meatloaf into greased muffin tins instead of using the skillet or a loaf pan before grill-baking.
Try hiding something in the middle of each mini-loaf, like cheese or vegetables.
Comfort food is never a miss in my house. Especially on cold and wet days. As an added bonus the gravy just tied everything together. No more ketchup or BBQ sauce for us.

Barbecue Style Tacos
Beef Carne Asada is Mexican barbecue style shredded beef marinated in chili spices. It’s particularly good on tacos and in burritos, but can be used in just about anything you would normally use ground beef for.View Details

So good it's spooky!
Fresh vegetables and grilled beef make up the bones of this dish, but watch out, it bites back! I really suggest that you serve your Ghost Pepper Chili with a dollop of sour cream, some cheese or a tall and cold glass of milk.View Details
