Its so gorgeous these days!
I have never noticed the effects of weather on my mood up until recently… I feel wonderful on beautiful days. Maybe I am just getting older. But for whatever its worth- I am in a great mood.
My allergies on the other hand are a mess. I am a sneezy sniffly puffy-eyed mess. And not even the expensive prescription allergy meds are providing much relief. I was the sneezy sniffly girl on the train today. I was the woman that people were tweeting about
“I swear if this chick blows her nose one more time…”
But it will all be over soon.
I went to visit momma the other day, and as always, when i leave moms house, i leave with groceries. Its going on 3 years that I have been living on my own and mom still shops like shes feeding an army. But why should i complain? She throws bags of kale, broccoli, and other random things that ROT in her fridge whenever i go there. Recently, she gave me some ground turkey and mushrooms.
I was thinking of using them separately but after much consideration I felt like meatloaf was in order. Meatloaf because i havent had meatloaf in a LONG time and the thought of chili in this weather is just not comforting (maybe in the winter). And the mushrooms? A mushroom sauce of course!
I preheated the oven to 350*. In the only mixing bowl in my house (its also my popcorn bowl), I combined the meat with an egg, a handful of italian breadcrumbs, 1 small chopped onion, onion powder, salt, pepper, and a little bit of garlic powder. I then folded all the ingredients together to get all the ingredients acquainted with one another.
Stealing this idea from heather, i decided to use my muffin tin to bake the meatloaf. Normally i would make it the traditional way but now that im trying to get swim suit ready (HA!) i thought i would go for portion control.
