Thank you for visiting my blog!

For those of you new to my blog, I thought I should let you know what my mission is. I am working my way through Rachael Ray's 365: No Repeats cookbook. It is my goal over time to prepare all of the recipes in this book. At the pace I am going, it may take me 5 years, but I am practical enough to realize that there is no way that I can cook every single night of the week, as well as purchase all the ingredients for every recipe every night and still keep up the mortgage payments! I hope you are inspired to get into the kitchen and try some new recipes yourself. Your comments are always welcome and I appreciate you stopping by. May the Lord bless you all!

Night 2

Recipe 332
Bacon-Wrapped Meatloaf Patties with Pan Gravy and Sour Cream-Tomato Smashed Potatoes
Matt rating ***

Ingredients used:
Red-skinned potatoes
Ground beef
Plain bread crumbs
Grill seasoning
Ground allspice
Tomato paste
Unsalted butter
Sour cream
Chicken stock
Spicy brown mustard
Worcestershire sauce
Flat-leaf parsley

Although this recipe called for what seems like a lot of ingredients, I happened to have all of them on hand. It was a pretty easy meal to make but took longer than 30 minutes, but that was due in part to going back and forth from a fussy baby to the kitchen.

Matt gave the meal three stars saying it was "average". He said the tomatoes in the smashed potatoes took away from the meal (but that is because he hates tomatoes), but that the bacon made up for it. I will give him credit though because he didn't pick out one tomato! He said the meat loaf patties alone wouldn't have been as good without the bacon. All in all, we would consider this recipe a keeper! I would rate this meal with three and a half stars...just a little better than average. But hey, it's still better than fast food, and we have leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
