Looky, Looky; look who I found! After taking way too much time off, due to a mental breakdown in the kitchen, ha ha, I figured I better get back to work. But seriously, I really have not felt like being in the kitchen that much let alone coming up with new things to try. It’s also due to the fact that Husband and I have shaved back on how much we eat as the weight has piled on a little much! During my absence I did manage to do a couple of things and this meatloaf was one; I also have a couple of others simple recipes to get out in the near future and a few more ideas in mind. The holidays also had a big factor in posting as we have slowed down in getting all the decorations up, down and the house back to normal until next year (OLD AGE stinks!)…. This recipe was not originally meant to be a breakfast food but after making it for supper, all Kenny and I could think of was how it would taste as a compliment to our eggs in the morning and that’s how we finished the rest of it off. We sliced it and then tried to brown it, only problem we had was it kind of fell apart in the frying pan but it sure didn’t take away from the flavor, no sireeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Breakfast Meatloaf
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 medium size baking potatoes or enough to make one pound
  • ½ cup shopped onion
  • 1 egg
  • ⅔ cup dried bread crumbs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Shred potatoes on a medium size grater, blot with paper towels to remove excess moisture.
  2. Mix together with the remaining ingredients.
  3. Shape mixture into loaf and place in a loaf pan sprayed with cooking spray.
  4. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour or until nicely browned.
  5. Let sit for 10 minutes before slicing.

Simplicity at one of its best for sure, especially for breakfast! I mean you got your meat and potatoes all in one dish, just add eggs and toast!!

I’d also like to share that our daughter just graduated form WHU (Waffle House University) and is now a manager who will be running her own store starting this week! So proud of her!

Fried Zucchini Spirals

This is something I saw on the internet and just had to try them my way of course!

But first let me share a cute story about our blueberries. The other day my granddaughter came to visit with her hubby and daughter and I was excited to show her all the berries that were available to us this year. While we were walking around the yard looking at them, Jingles our dog was right beside us. Sammi and I were picking berries off of the bushes and popping them in our mouths when I noticed Jingles biting off the lower berries and chomping them up! She had never done that before when I was picking them and we just got such a kick out of it; guess she figured if they were good enough for us, they were good enough for her too!! Oh and she only took the ones that were ripe; who says dogs aren’t super smart?

 
Well, I’ve made these zucchini treats twice now and the only problems that I encountered were that the first time, most of them got eaten before we even sat down to eat dinner; not really a problem I guess. The other problem is that you really have to watch them little devils as one second they’re not quite done and the next second they’re almost burnt! So when cooking, do NOT take your eyes off them for a sec unless you like them a little bit on the dark side as did Husband and daughter both; SCARRRRRY…………..

Fried Zucchini Spirals
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • Desired amount of zucchini, cut in large spirals ( I have one of those as seen on TV ones, ha ha! )
  • Flour
  • Bread crumbs seasoned with Italian seasonings ( I used basil,oregano and parsley )
  • Oil for frying
Instructions
  1. Dredge zucchini with flour in large baking pan in a single layer and let sit for about 5 minutes or until zucchini's moisture makes the flour damp; shake off excess flour.
  2. Now repeat with the bread crumbs to which the desired amount of seasonings are added; let stand again for a few minutes.
  3. Fry in a cast iron skillet over medium heat in about one inch of oil, flipping them as they fry and cook until nicely browned or burnt a little as I did the second time around what was I thinking!
  4. Drain on paper towels being careful not to eat them all while standing there in the kitchen finishing up your cooking............
