Improvising

Here is a funny little thing, Anna's new phrase is "Oh My Goodness" It's pretty cute in a 3 year old. Not so cute is her refusal to wear shirts when we are home. At least she isn't trying to go shirtless to school...

Today I got an email from the Food Network promising meatloaf recipes, so I thought I have a bunch of ground turkey in the freezer, hey I'll make meatloaf. But when I went to make it, I found I was missing a few ingredients so I improvised...

Let me know what you think, I'll report back tomorrow and let you know if it worked...

2 lbs ground turkey
3/4 cup brown rice (was supposed to be quick oats)
1/2 cup chopped green pepper (was supposed to be red bell pepper)
1 med. onion (check on that)
2 eggs (check on that)
2 tbsp Merlot Sauce (was supposed to be 1 tsp worcheshire sauce
1/4 cup ketchup (check on that)
fresh ground peper (check on that)
1 tsp of Garlic Garlic (was supposed to be salt)
and it called for 1/2 cup of milk which I didn't have and just left out.
and 8oz of tomato sauce...I didn't have that so I poured the rest of a jar of Mild Red Pepper Sauce on top.

We'll see how it goes. I am make the Perfectly Parm. Biscuits and a Rice Pilaf to go w/.

My rice pilaf will have 1 1/2 cups brown rice
water w/chix bullion
chopped zucchini
chopped sugar snap peas
chopped onion.
and some Seasoned Salt if needed.

About a week ago I started making my way through a book called The Energy of Money by Maria Nemeth...It's a great place to start if you want to have a better relationship w/money...any who doesn't.

The leaves are starting to change, I don't mind Fall but I am already coaching myself through the dead of winter! Okay right after the holidays I'll be in Austin TX, it will probably be warmer there...then a few weeks and it will be Valentines Day...usually there isn't too much snow after that...usually there is a weird heat wave in March...LOL
