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 46

Recipe 100
Gravy-Smothered Cajun-Style Meatloaf Patties with Maple Pecan-Glazed String Beans
Matt rating ****1/2

Ingredients used:

Ground beef
Ground pork
Plain bread crumbs
Worcestershire sauce
Freshly grated nutmeg
Tomato paste
Green bell pepper
Garlic clove
Vegetable oil
Pecan halves
Chicken stock
Green beans
Unsalted butter
Maple syrup
Red pepper flakes
Heavy cream
Flat-leaf parsley

Okay so I know this seems like a lot of ingredients for one recipe, but the majority of them we all have on hand. Matt LOVED the green beans - and as you know by now if you've been reading this blog, he is not big on green anything! My favorite part of the meal was the gravy. The meatloaf patties would have been a little too plain without it, which surprised me considering how much "stuff" went into them.

I will soon be headed back into my kitchen to make tonight's meal - Southwestern Pasta Bake. If I have enough time tonight I will post then, if not, come back tomorrow.
