I made this project bag from two vintage placemats. The ribbon was out of the stash. This is so much better than a plastic baggie! This was a very fast project as little to no seaming and the edges were finished -so no lining needed. I hope to make a couple more for Valentines day this year.

Last weeks Crockpot Meatloaf

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

I made a double batch of meatloaf and used the leftovers 2 ways. So we got three meals total.

*Night 1
Meatballs (golf ball size)

* Night 2
A topping for pizza. I sliced them into coin size pieces and froze them. I used them a week later.

*Night 3
Pasta Fagioli - I used a quart size baggie of coin size slices.

Here is my basic meatloaf:
1/2 shredded cheese
2 egg whites
1 lb meat - I use 2/3 97% ground beef and 1/3 ground turkey
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/3 chopped onion
salt and pepper

Drop the meatballs into the crockpot. My crockpot is 6 quarts in size . Meatballs were on top of each other and cooked just fine.

I cook on high for 1 hour then low for 4 hours.

This coat is so last season!

I saw this guy at Rhinebeck and he had just been sheered. They gave him the coat as he has just lost his. The animal barn was amazing! Sheep, alpaca's, goats, and bunnies. I loved that aspect of the day and seeing each ones personality. More to come check back!
