Finally back from the annual Mexican migration, I had to make the Birthday Girl her favorite dinner...meatloaf. For most of our 35 years together, I never made meatloaf but a few years back I surprised her and have been making it the last few years. Mashed turnips and green beans for my carb conscious wife are also the order of the day.
This year, as always, I used a pound of ground pork with a few pounds of ground beef. Sauteed onions and garlic with Italian bread crumbs, herbs and then liberally stuffed with cheese before baking and then slathering the traditional ketchup and brown sugar glaze over all.
Its always delicious comfort food and welcome after being gone for so long.
So much to do this weekend. Putting the pond up for the winter, prepping the garden beds and the last of the lawn care. I will have to mow at least one last time this weekend and cover the outdoor furniture. The last of summer is fleeting by and the trees are putting on their fall display. We had our first frost this morning so winter is knocking at the door.
