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!

Well I hope you enjoy and will forgive me for not being around in such a long time, later………Don’t forget to like us on Facebook  and Twitter and join our Saturday news letter..up there..at the top.. to keep up with the latest recipes!

Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits

sun and biscuts 005

Good Morning!

First of all let me share with you a few events in our day out here in the woods which is on the whole very uneventful. First of all the beautiful sunrise we woke up to yesterday. I was checking my e/mail, etc. when I looked out the window to gaze upon a sky that looked like it was on fire. Now I know what they say, red in the morning, sailors take warning however, our weather ignored the omen and it was a warm but nice day overall.

WTF?

What kind of rat does this?

Next thing, Kenny went out to his workshop/barn/man-cave and came back to the house telling me he had something to show me. He had put out a tray of rat poisoning as they were getting in there and chewing the wires on the phone line, his fan and other things. On top of the box of poison, the rats or something had drug a fairly good size piece of molding over the top of the box along with pieces of glass and torn up paper covering the entire thing as if to warn fellow critters not to touch the stuff. We have some very smart vermin running around here!

And last but not least, as I was coming back from getting the mail something caught my eye that wasn’t there when I moseyed on down to the mailbox, an oak SNAKE! I was never one to hurt a snake but I knew this fellow would eventually get much larger and eventually find it slithery self messing with my chicken coop and stealing our chicken eggs, oh HELL no!!! Husband was unavailable at the time so I came up to the house, grabbed a shovel and took matters into my own hands. Boy that little son-of-a-gun gave me a hard time as I was trying to kill him on a not so solid of a surface but I won out in the long run and he will never bother our eggs, no no no!

All you need is a cup of coffee to start you're day!

All you need is a cup of coffee to start you’re day!

Now on with the real reason I’m here, but it is fun to share some of our little happenings! I made these yesterday and we had them with our coffee this morning, husband is hooked for sure not that I’m going to make them very often as he is constantly harping about his weight gain since he quit smoking, ha ha! But here it goes:
