So… Our stay here in Texas has been great and I’ve been the cook, for the most part. The house currently sits with four adults, two teenage boys (16 & 15), three pre-teen boys, and one little two year old.
This guy… Lol.
All I can say is that we eat a bunch…
This recipe was just enough to feed this group. Here we go…
Take 2 lbs of ground meat (80/20) and 1 pound of ground pork and place it in a bowl.
Add to it…
1 Tbs Tastefully Simple’s Onion Onion
1 Tbs Tastefully Simple’s Garlic Garlic
1.5 cups of ritz crackers
1 cup of water
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Then take 1.5 cups of ketchup, 1 Tbs mustard, 1/2 cup of brown sugar
Pour onto meatloaf and bake in a preheated oven at 350° for 1 hour. This is what you will come away with…
This is so yummy. You will absolutely LOVE it!!!
And onto the Mac n Cheese…
Boil a pot of water and cook your pasta according to the directions on the box. I used medium shells and boiled them about 10 minutes.
In a small saucepan, add 2 Tbs butter and flour. Cook for two minutes. This will cook the four taste out.
Add your milk, 2 cups. Continue to wisk.
Next, add your cheese. 2 cups mild cheddar.
Wisk until smooth.
Add 1 Tbs of Tabasco, 3/4 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp pepper.
Mix then toss with the cooked pasta.
Yummy! Seriously! This was a knockout dish. Everyone loved it. 🙂
I hope you give it a try.
Till next time…
The Tastefully Simple guy
