Oh, my day was full for all good reasons...I loved what I got to do today and wouldn't trade any of that precious time with people.
But it's days like this when I need something fast to prepare, yet want it to be nutritious, healthy and filling. What to do?
Meatloaf, baked potatoes and green beans!
Found this new recipe for the meatloaf HERE on All Recipes. I subsituted the bread with our gluten free bread, but otherwise did just what the recipe said.
It got rave reviews tonight! And seriously, the prep time really was only ten minutes.
If you plan ahead just a little bit, you can get all sorts of things done in a day, and still have a good meal for your family!
