What's for Dinner Week!!! And The WINNERS!

This week I ask the question What's for Dinner!?
I am also providing answers! I have touted Menu Planning Mondays, but now I will put my money where my mouth is and let you in on what I like to cook.

Now, you must know I am mainly a one disher. I mean everything in a bowl, mix, mix, mix and bake. then eat. Done. I like 'em easy and yummy. When I want Coq Au Vin I let Hubby step up because he is the true chef of our family. I'm just a mom who know her limitations. I need a recipe, I cannot ad lib and throw things together, OH NO! I almost burnt the house down making fried chicken. Are you with me?

Now I know everyones stocks are in the pooper so I thought I would help out by encouraging you to stay home and cook dammit! LOL! Some of these recipes I will be giving are family recipes. I mean old southern stuff, so they need a lot of love! On to the menu.

Tonight darlings, we are making Turkey Meatloaf. This was Granmommies recipe, and originally was beef, but I think the turkey is even MORE YUMMY!

Here you go:


1 lb ground turkey (or beef)
1/2 cup tomato soup
1 cup corn flakes (crushed)
1 egg (beaten)
2 or 3 stalks of celery (de string)
1/2 or 3/4 small white onion chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 slices of bacon (for top)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mix ingredients (except bacon) in a bowl. Form into a loaf and place into a pan lined with tin foil and sprayed with cooking spray. Pour 1/2 cup of boiling water over the top(this is Key!) Microwave bacon so it's partially done and then place across the top. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.

I serve it with broccoli and potatoes!


Okay, You've waited long enough. The two lucky winners who will be receiving Stori Telling (.... Life On the Other Coast is graciously is passing on hers too!) are:

Great minds think alike! I just started a (hopefully) weekly post of what we eat at our house. I'm hoping to give myself inspiration for later when I can't think of anything to make.

Meatloaf and mashed potatoes is one of my daughter's favorite dinners! She'll be finishing her first report for school tonight, so I might make this for her. Thanks for the inspiration!

Question about the meatloaf: If I am not using the bacon on top, do I still need the boiling water? I assume so but wanted to make sure they aren't related in some way.

Congrats on the pregnancy!


Belle in Bloom said...

THANK-YOU!!!!! I really needed this! I've been on a school bus ALL day with the fifth graders on a field trip and now I'm off to teach tap for 5 hrs. Heaven help me... This makes it much better. :)
Love you!

The recipe looks delicious!

By the way, I finally gave in and bought Tori's book today, and decided to do a giveaway too (and credited you for the idea in my post)! Tori is apparently a prepster trend - who knew?

Hope you're having a great week . .

We love meatloaf at our home, too. On days I am really tired, I use the McCormick season packet for meatloaf, it's yummy!
