Yesterday was $2.99/lb. ground chuck/boneless chicken breast day at Fresh Market. So, today was freezer meatloaf day. If I'm gonna mess around with making meatloaf I want to do a bunch so I have them at the ready when I get hungry for a comfort meal. I have 3 - 2# meatloafs shaped and wrapped in plastic in the freezer. Tomorrow, when I'm sure they are frozen solid I'll wrap in foil and then bag to keep them organized. I love using my kitchen scale to make them all the same size. I find a 2# cooked meatloaf is usually enough for a meal and then one sandwich each for a lunch a day or so later.

The chicken breasts just got individually wrapped and bagged and tossed on a quarter sheet pan in the freezer. No sense in paying more than I have to when I want to make a meal.

The first flavored butter I made was Irish whiskey butter for St. Pat's Day.

1 tbsp sugar
9 tbsp butter, softened
3 tbsp whiskey

So, how did you use the butter?

Bugster, we put it on the soda bread. Afterward, Cassie cooked breakfast with it and put it on muffins.

Once while making povitica bread, I accidentally made pecan butter by over grinding the nuts.  That would probably be good added to butter too.

Tonight I had the 'tasting test' meatloaf meal. It held together well enough and had good flavor so I guess the other 3 in the freezer will be good to go at a later date. (I did do a fried patty test to check for seasoning...that's when I discovered I forgot to add the tomato sauce.)

As long as the oven was on I decided baked potatoes and roasted broccoli would be good sides.

The meatloaf looks great Beth!...
That butter melting on the potatoes surely looks good too!

We are gonna finish off the meatloaf tomorrow, that Tina had picked up the other day from Boston Market.

Tonight, it will be chili cheese burgers.

Tonight was enchiladas with a white green chile sauce. I dosed myself with Pepto and Pepcid beforehand but I am SOL. The gut is starting to burn. I guess I will be dosing all night long. I know better than to eat it but it tastes so good.

Thats exactly how I feel now!
Took a gas-x and a Zantac before I ate. No spice, but it was greasy. Diner burgers with onions and a splash of mustard, then heaped with chili sauce.
Then I had ring dings, and coffee with cinnamon and sugar bagel chips.

Looks like bed time will be at 3 or 4. Need time to digest the garbage.

I was trying to organize my freezer(s), knowing there was stuff there I had forgotten about or just could not locate. Lo & behold ~ the marinated London Broil I was sure was there somewhere. This (spare) 'side-by-side' refrigerator/freezer is SO much more difficult to organize than my full upright freezer was. But, it does have a working ice maker so I have that as a spare. I guess I'll stop complaining and just try to do better at keeping stuff straight.

BETH #1 .... the LB looks great.

On the freezer issue, we have problems with the side by side in the kitchen.
All the crap is squeezed in and stuck so that the drawers wont slide out to get the stuff.
The downstairs unit is a Gibson Commercial huge freezer that is 7 feet high, and with three people stucking and moving stuff ( me ...tina ....and DD ), it's impossible to keep it organized.
I try and keep the pork chicken, and beef separate.

I was just down there separating and vacuum sealing sausage and ground beef.
I had no room because GD's 3 kinds of frozen waffles, and fruity pops in huge boxes were all over the place.

Now the freezer is due for a defrost. And the turkey buzzards WILL have a feast when I get through cleaning it out. Mad

Tonights supper was finally finish the meatloaf. Had a double decker hot meatloaf with gravy. Beans and mashed potatoes. I didn't eat the potatoes. Enough carbs with the bread.

Then we all had rice pudding that Tina made from scratch.... Goooood!

Right now, my tummy is way too full, and that recliner is calling me. hahahahahah

Jimmy, I had the same problem with my freezer, and there was the occasional frozen something that would slide out and land on my foot. OUCH! I solved the problem by buying plastic bins. I put all the chicken in one bin etc.. It helped a lot.

I will say, even though this side-by-side refrigerator is a PITA to organize and there's not a whole lot of room, it is nice to have the second ice maker hooked up and have the refrigerator space for all the drinks, water, etc. that we seem to have. My kitchen French door refrigerator just has to have the stuff I use regularly. Extra condiments, Asian stuff, extra pickles...whatever, gets stored in the spare.
