Meatloaf Recipe

My horribly written recipe haha
Everything you'll need:
1 lb hamburger (or turkey burger)
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
Salt& pepper
Garlic salt-to taste
Cheese- I used shredded Colby Jack
1/2 cup? Italian bread crumbs 
1/2-1 cup quick oats

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup ketchup 
(I usually double because I like lots of sauce!)
Whisk together and set aside:)

Mix hamburger and all other ingredients together (except sauce--although you can add some ketchup to mix if it seems too dry. Or more milk or eggs). 

Put into casserole dish--average size is best but you can use a smaller one and half the recipe like i did (or leave the same for thicker) or put in 13x9 pan. Just keep an eye on it. You'll know it's done when it shrinks up and is boiling and "browned". 

Cook time 1 hr @ 375 degrees fahrenheit  
Cook 30 mins then add sauce mixture and cook for 30 more mins! Enjoy!

Peach Lemonade

•1 can peaches-drained and blended
(You can also use fresh or frozen to make it extra yummy! I used a regular magic bullet cup to blend. The more peaches the better in my opinion!):)

•2qts of lemonade prepared according to directions

Stir the blended peaches with the lemonade and enjoy!:) 

Clearly I was craving it so much I drank half of it before I took pictures!:)

Extra Cheesy, Extra Yummy Mac&Cheese!

I made some super yummy Mac-n-cheese today! I just eyeballed it amd threw stuff in so I just guessed on the amounts! Here's what I used:

4-5oz Velveta Cheese Cubed
2-3oz Cream Cheese Cubed
1/2-1cup Shredded Colby Jack Cheese
1/2-2cups Milk (I used 2%-do 1/2 cup then see if you need more!)
Leftover Ham-bite size-optional
Could use chicken, bacon or no meat (so much better with it though! Cook it of course!)
2-3 cups (About half a box?) of cooked pasta of choice 
(I used mini rigatoni-aka mini bow tie pasta)

Melt all the "cheeses" and milk together in saucepan stirring constantly until its all melted. Add meat and pasta, stir& serve! 


Serving Size is about 4? It fed me, my husband and 2 toddlers.

HOW TO TRACE AND IMAGE/FILE and SAVE IT as an SVG or whatever you want! I haven't tried putting the file onto the Silhouette software yet, but I'm assuming it would work! I LOVE this software! It's my new best friend! 
Just go to:
This is the easiest, best program I've found for doing this and to make your own Subway art, flyers, business cards, fb banners, blog headers, etc! It's simply amazing and super simple! It's exactly how I wish all my other programs worked! You can go to the learn tab on their site and see how to do everything. Here's a video as well:)

Homemade Italian Bread Crumbs


So good& so easy!
• 1 cup bread crumbs 
• 1 TBSP Butter
• 1 TBSP Italian Seasoning

(I did a whole loaf of bread which was about 9 cups so I did 3 cups at a time)

I used frozen bread and put in food processor then in blender to make sure all chunks were broken down fine.

Then just melt butter in pan, put in bread crumbs and Italian seasoning and fry/stir until bread is dry and crumbly. 

Then put on cookie sheet lined with foil and let cool/dry. (I used foil so I could just pick it up and dump it in bags) 

When cool, put crumbs into a freezer bag,label and put in freezer until you need to use them! 

Note: You can also use a recycled container, the bread bag you took the bread outof or Tupperware container to store them in freezer.
Can store for 6+ months in freezer!
