  1. That's me. I have this odd reaction to eating. After eating almost anything, I grow incredibly sleepy. To the point that if I eat out when alone, I sometimes feel unsafe driving home and have to either eat close to our house or wait out the sleepys in the restaurant. None of my doctors has any clue what this could be. So, if I need to get something done, I tend not to eat anything but a small snack until dinner time.

    Peeps: Marshmallowly Goodness

    I should have said toasted. Skewered and flamed over a candle.

    Dinner 2019

    Salad: Spaghetti Bolognese: Buttered and toasted potato rolls: I have to have some kind of bread to eat with anything saucy - gotta drag the bread through the leftover sauce. I couldn't face stopping at the store today, so leftover hamburger buns it was.
  4. Just asked Mr. Kim to order that one and also Instant Pot Obsession.

    Peeps: Marshmallowly Goodness

    I didn't grow up liking Peeps and neither did our daughter. But Mr. Kim did. So they were around after Easter. What we discovered was if you roasted them and then dipped in chocolate fondue (or hot fudge), they can be quite yummy.

    There was an egg. @Toliver suggested adding another to help bind things.

    @lindag, @ElsieD, and @Toliver – thanks so much for the questions and comments. I used both beef and pork. The beef was 80/20. But, I just realized looking over the recipe that it calls for 1 1/2 lb. of meat and I used 2 lbs. Could that be the issue? I don’t have the meatloaf recipe you talked about, but I do have a Cook’s Country cookbook with a meatloaf recipe that looks simple enough. I think I’ll try that on the rest of the meat I’ve got in the freezer.

    This almost ended up in the “I will never again…” thread because I’m not sure I’m ever making meatloaf again. For most of my early adult life, I couldn’t make meatloaf to save my life. It tasted fine, but fell apart – no matter what recipe I used. Mr. Kim and I used to joke that my meatloaf made great spaghetti sauce. Then, about ten years ago, it suddenly started working for me. They held together and served great both hot and cold. I haven’t made one in a long time and got a craving. So, I used one of my usual recipes - Barbeque Meat Loaf. I didn’t put it in a loaf pan – just patted it into shape on a sheet pan and put it in the oven. When I went in to brush it with sauce 20 minutes later, it had begun to spread out over the pan. Luckily, I’d put it on top of foil, so I just gathered it up with the foil and fitted it into a loaf pan and finished baking it. It was obviously much too loose to take out of the pan, so I chilled it completely. When I took it out and sliced it, it was still very crumbly: I ended up heating it in the microwave and piling it on toasted buns, topping with the sauce and an onion ring and serving it that way: So frustrating. I have no idea what I’m doing wrong considering this is a recipe I’ve used before. Sigh. I also served leftover pintos and collards:

    Dinner 2019

    @JoNorvelleWalker – Lovely dinner on Saturday! Do you make your slaw with Napa? And those potatoes – Jeez Louise!!!!! @Shelby – Your bread is GORGEOUS!!!! How do you make such lovely bread? @Ann_T– Hoping things go well with Moe! I’ve been thinking about you two! Some recent meals – took dinner to some friends last week. My MIL’s Mandarin Tossed Salad: (I forgot to put the oranges on until halfway through dinner). Shrimp burgers: (one on GF bread). Frozen sweet potato fries: We finally celebrated Jessica’s 35th BD (the actual date was 1/27) at our favorite restaurant in Charlottesville VA - Al Carbon: Sides: Street corn, pinto beans and plantains. The incredible chicken: Chicken cemita: Breaded beef cemita: Churros: A simple one – salad: And kielbasa, fixed up Kraft and green beans and potatoes: Mr. Kim ordered some Father’s bacon: I had some Armenian sweet bread in the freezer: French toast, bacon and fruit: We really liked the bacon and thought it was as good as Benton’s. But the next morning I had some that was leftover and found it a little too smoky and salty. I finally used my Instant Pot for the first time. I did collards and pintos: Also Shake ‘N Bake pork chops and fixed up Kraft. And cornbread, of course – got the skillet good and hot – look at the sizzle: I was thrilled with the flavor of the greens and the beans. Both needed a little bit more cooking time than the recipes called for, but that is an easy adjustment.

    @chord - thank you so much. I think I have some leftover cornbread in the freezer and it would be perfect for this! Father’s bacon and egg on a potato roll:

    I would never have thought of cornbread for strata! What a great idea. It looks and sounds marvelous! Care to share the recipe?

    It's Fat Tuesday!

    The youth group at our church hosted a fund raiser pancake supper last night. Pancakes, sausage and applesauce. Does that count?

    Digging through the freezer for shrimp, I found some sausage balls…LUNCH!
