Yesterday I tried my hand at a new recipe. I had almost a half of a meatloaf left from the other night so I searched for a recipe.
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 cup frozen sliced carrots
- 2-3 cups leftover crumbled meat loaf
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup beef broth
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons mustard
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon dried marjoram leaves
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- 1 (20-ounce) package refrigerated mashed potatoes
PreparationPreheat oven to 375 degrees F. In large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir 4-5 minutes until crisp-tender. Add carrots; cook and stir 4 minutes. Then add crumbled meatloaf; cook and stir 4-5 minutes until hot. Add flour; cook and stir for 3 minutes. Add broth, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, marjoram, and salt and pepper to taste; simmer 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat potatoes as directed on package. Add peas and sour cream to beef mixture and pour into 2-1/2 quart casserole dish. Top with mashed potatoes and spread to cover, then run a fork over the potatoes to make shallow furrows. Bake for 25-35 minutes until filling is bubbly and potatoes are golden brown. Let cool 10 minutes, then serve.
I didn't have onions or carrots. I did have onion in the meat loaf and mixed vegetables. I didn't have beef broth, but had French onion soup mix. It also called for ketchup and mustard. I don't know if I liked that addition. It was kind of too sweet for me. I like more of a gravy mix. Oh well...next time! The family liked it!
Tonight I want to go the show. A while back I had donated to a local theater who had to go digital. In appreciation, I got a certificate for free admission to the show and a 12" pizza. (It is a cinema/cafe).
I want to see this. I liked the movie with Charlton Heston way back when so I thought this would be good on the big screen. I know, I'm weird. My son will go with me, cause no one else will.
My husband has been working so hard and is so tired, but he will probably meet with the buddies for golf and cards this weekend. Many are coming up from out of town.
Tomorrow is church and after I want to stop in on one our members who recently turned 94. She is my church Mom. She is not doing so well but will receive visitors in her home for a brief time. It will probably be the last time I see her and will be difficult for me. Such a beautiful, sweet lady!
