    I'm so proud that I got around early enough to get the crockpot going. I'm making a meat loaf and I have never made one in a crockpot before. I hope it turns out okay.

    Oh, and did I mention I really HATE meatloaf!! It disgusts me. Hopefully somebody else around here will eat it :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Now, I'm free to go sew. I'm sew excited!! :D

    I used to hate meatloaf. It always seemed too soft to suit me. Now I cook it and let it cool. Then I slice it and pop the slices under the broiler for a few minutes to reheat it and put some crispy edges on it. I like it much better that way.

    What time is dinner? I love meatloaf! So much that I make it with 2 big Sam's Club packages (around 12 lbs) at a time. Bake them all, wrap in foil and freeze.

    I hate making it so I get the most goody out of the icky hands that I can LOL

    I have pizza dough rising and need to make more pesto before the basil is done for the year. So, Pesto Shrimp Pizza and salad here tonight.

    Love meatloaf! Wish I could make it like my Lithuanian grandmother did, though. Haven't had it in 45 years, but can still smell and taste it!

    Tonight is leftover roasted chicken mixed and heated through with some Newman's light honey mustard salad dressing, torn pieces of cooked turkey bacon thrown in,
    and with some cooked whole wheat linguine mixed in. Salad.
    Trying a new invention!

    Please let us know how it comes out in the crockpot. I've never made it that way.

    I'd never eat it when my Mom made it. She cooked it in a pyrex mixing bowl. I eventually tried to make it after I got married, cooking it the same way. Wasn't working for me so I switched to a pyrex cake pan size. World of difference.

    Hubby isn't crazy for meatloaf but I am. I make it with steamed rice, green beans, yams, salad and cornbread. Yum!

    My new Electric pressure is due to arrive tomorrow. So first meal in it is Cabbage rolls.

    I use my crock pot to make my spaghetti sauce, it can simmer all day and I don't have to worry about it scorching.

    I make my meatloaf in the microwave and it tastes like it came out of the oven.Honest,it really works.It takes about 20 minutes and it will even brown on the top.No more oven meatloaf for me unless it is at someone elses house.I cover it lightly with waxed paper and add water about half way in the baking dish.

    I love GOOD meatloaf. My hubby would eat it every night! I also am curious about how well it will do in the crockpot! Be sure to let us know.
    I am still having a fibromyalgia flare up and feel like I have been beaten. We are having hamburgers for supper...another thing my DH loves....lucky me!! :thumbup:

    My recipe is simple......

    A head of cabbage
    1 lb ground pork
    1 lb ground turkey meat
    1 cup rice
    favorite seasonings (I use Mrs. Dash (garlic and herb), creole seasoning and garlic powder.
    4 or 5 8 oz. cans of Contidina tomato sauce.
    mix the pork, turkey and rice along with the seasonings in a bowl.

    Take the core out of the cabbage and place in a bowl with a little water in the microwave for about 10 minutes or so. This softens the cabbage leaves up a bit to work with.

    Arrange the rolls in a pan, I normally use a lasagna pan. Pour the tomato sauce over the rolls, sprinkle on some seasonings, place in a 350 degree oven for about 2 hours. Check about every half hour and add sauce as needed.

    For me it is mostly the texture. And then is the flavor. And the appearance...and ....and....

    We ate it and I was right. It was disgusting. My DD and DH loved it tho so I guess it wasn't a total failure. I just filled up on mashed potatoes :D
