so, sometimes when i make something, i kinda get on a kick and want to try variations. since my first meat loaf was of the 'gourmet' variety, i wanted to make one more 'traditional'.
i went online searching recipes, and found paula dean's old-fashioned meat loaf via the food network website.
making two was an accident. apparently, when i was chopping the onion and green pepper, i thought i was measuring with the 1/2 cup, but was actually measuring with the 1 cup. oops.
that required another quick visit to the grocery store to buy another pound of meat.
but, a happy accident it was ... nothing wrong with leftovers!
jackie also made some delicious butter beans she'd bought at the farmer's market. i didn't take notes on her recipe, but she did cook the beans in bacon fat, and used this lonesome slice to add in later (lucky it didn't get eaten before then).
and mashed yukon golds with parmesan and garlic! wow! now that's a solid southern dinner .....
i think my meat loaf phase is over ... for now. though, i haven't tried it yet with ground turkey.
