Can you believe we have officially entered Fall? This is my favorite season and I have been working hard around the house to get it fall ready (decorations and such). In honor of the begining of a new, hopefully cooler season, I decided to make comfort food with a twist. Tonight's dinner was South of the Border Meatloaf from (you guessed it) Pampered Chef Seasons Best for this Fall/Winter. Here's the review:
Wonderful flavor! Love the idea of mixing the rub in with the ketchup to make (say it with me)... flavored ketchup. I modified this a little bit to add more spice by putting half a serrano pepper into the mix. Awards go to the PC covered baker for making this dish something easy for a weeknight. A little story to let you know how my day went: I fell asleep while sitting down watching tv at 4:30 PM and Drew woke me up at 7:00 PM, yes 7:00. I felt like I had been drugged (we think I had an allergic reaction to something I was working with today). So I slowly extracted myself from the couch (with much effort) and got to the kitchen to make dinner. It took around 35 minutes from the time I got in the kitchen until dinner was on the table. I paired this meatloaf with seasoned steamed zucchini. One note for this recipe, I don't know what I did to make it not stick together enough, but the meatloaf was definitely missing its LOAFNESS (new word for the day). It ended up being really crumbly - still tasty, but crumbly. HELP! Do my readers have any tips for the perfect meatloaf? Post a comment, I am always looking for new tips!
