That extra half of a pound that I've been carrying around since Washington,DC is still here folks. Actually, at this point, I'm growing rather fond of the little guy. NOT!!! I've clearly been making poor choices lately and have been eating like a glutton. I'm hoping for a better week ahead.
Today's recipe is for meatloaf.
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 cup chopped onion
2 large cloves of garlic, minced
1 lb. ground turkey
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
3/4 cup ketchup
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Saute onion in butter until translucent, add garlic and saute for a few minutes more. Set mixture aside to cool for 5 minutes.
Combine turkey, bread crumbs, egg, 1/4 cup ketchup, Worcestershire, salt, and pepper to the onion mixture. Mix well. Pack mixture into an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan. Top with the remaining ketchup. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until no longer pink in the center and internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.
We celebrated my mother's birthday this weekend at a Chinese restaurant. I decided to make Asian-themed Candy Bar Slider's for the occasion. All you paper crafter's out there have probably made these before.
They're very easy to put together and make great party favors.
Just pull up on the bow and the candy bar slides up to the top. Fun!
Have a simply marvelous day, everyone!
