All that rain made me crave comfort food last night. ;)

Real mashed potatoes!! Please don't tell me if you eat those flakes...the Irish spirit in me will die.

*Recipe at the bottom

And this was Wednesday night! You know I'm mostly against frozen foods BUT these turned out be really good and I know a few on my list can actually get PC stuff so I just wanted to mention it. No artificial colours or flavours or any of that crap and the chicken was actually good. We've been chronically disappointed by stuff like this but I would definitely buy these again for when I don't really have time to cook. :)

*Okay so it was rainy Thursday evening and the moon was in the 7th house... Just kidding. Here's the recipe!


Ingredients:

- 1 1/2 pounds medium ground beef
- 1 egg
- 1/2 chopped onion
- 1 cup full-fat milk
- 1 cup homemade breadcrumbs
- 4 cloves of garlic (crushed)
- A few splashes of Worcestershire sauce
- Salt, pepper and parsley to taste

Glaze:

- 3 heaping tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/3 cup BBQ sauce (I recommend hickory. Mmm.)
- 2 tablespoons prepared mustard

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, mix all the first set of ingredients. Form into loaf in one of those grease-release pans.

In small bowl, mix all glaze ingredients and evenly spread over top.

Bake 1 hour, let sit 5 minutes.

Total time: 1 hr 25 mins


So good and so easy. I've also made this many times with only 1 pound of meat but changed nothing else and it obviously comes out super flavourful like that, if you go with the full 1.5 lbs it's a touch plainer.
