Remember that old Eddie Rabbitt song?
Well it's a very rainy, damp, cold night here in Indy, and I am cozy inside!
We have had dinner and now I am enjoying a cup of de-caf coffee.
This is what we had for dinner, one of Jim's favs...
I make Ina Garten's (The Barefoot Contessa) meatloaf recipe from The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook. Her recipe actually calls for ground turkey, but my dear hubby is a meat and taters guy, so it's made w/ ground beef. While looking through my current Taste of Home Magazine I found a meatloaf recipe that called for a mashed potato crust. Well, as soon as I mentioned the crust to Jim... it was a must make dish! So here is a pic... and I do have to say it's delish. Just make your favorite meatloaf recipe and bake for 30 minutes @ 350*. Remove from the oven and pipe the mashed potatoes you prepare on top. I used a large star tip. Bake for 45 more minutes or until the meatloaf registers 160*. We had petite peas and pineapple slices too! Fortunately there is some leftover for his lunch tomorrow! I made my mashed potatoes w/ butter, a splash of chicken broth, salt and some cream cheese. Whipped them up and yummo!
Tonight is one of those nights that you hunker down and are thankful for the roof over your head, a warm meal in your tummy, cozy blanket and a good book!
But godliness with contentment is great gain.
