Low carb meatloaf


I’ve been trying to get back into eating healthier. I thought I’d try this recipe. I didn’t follow the original to the exact because I didn’t…. It was good, but I’m glad I cut the salt down. It was still a little much for my liking, so when you read my recipe here, you’ll know I’ve changed it from what it was. It will reflect that the change.

I have mentioned before how hard I’ve been working to get my house cleaned and organized. It’s been difficult to reduce the amount of clutter. I’ve gotten rid of about 8 trash bags of give away and about 4 bags of trash. How does one collect so much junk?? I’m trying to tell myself this will never happen again, but we all know it will. Here’s hoping…

2 lbs ground beef

1 small onion, chopped, sautéed

1/2 cup parmesan cheese

2 eggs

1/2 cup cheddar cheese

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon salt

Mix everything together but the cheddar cheese. Once mixed add cheddar. I suggest putting half in a loaf pan, then the cheese, then more meat on top. I think it’d turn out better. Cook 350 degrees for one hour.

Garlic Beef and Bean Stir Fry


Did you know that Cooking Light no longer publishes magazine’s that are printed?? I didn’t. On one of our visits to Winston Salem for burn clinic, I found this recipe. When we go, we stay at this house for people who have a loved one in the hospital or following up with surgeries or appointments and such. They have TONS of old magazines. I grabbed all the cooking one’s I could find and I sat and went through it like a crazy, mad woman. I almost didn’t take a pic of this one, but I’m so happy I did. This is literally my new favorite recipe for Chinese style food.

I was really excited about  the appointment. I told ya’ll he had been told we’d be doing a skin graft, well we aren’t. He’s healed enough that it isn’t necessary. I’m just worried about some of his fingers. I know it takes time, but I do think we’re going to end up with another surgery. I wish I could just stay patient. Patience is so hard.

Mexican Cheesey Ground Beef and Rice Casserole


Tonight I was feeling a little off my game. I don’t know what my deal is. I wanted easy, I wanted fast, I wanted to do little. I ended up finding this recipe. I’m glad I did. My guys loved it. I also made my own tortillas.

I think I’m worried about my hubby’s appointment. I’m afraid of what will happen. He still has a spot, that I’ve talked about on his wrist. It’s getting better without intervention, but a month ago he wanted to do another skin graft over it. All I can think is O.M.G another surgery…please no. I guess we’ll see what happens.

I’ve worked really hard today to get everything finished for our visitor. I’m so excited about it. I have decided my house isn’t clean enough. I’m going to get this place spic and span. I’m going to get me connected to flylady. Have ya’ll used flylady? I’ve used her in the past for things, but not lately. I’ll keep ya’ll updated about that.

Meatball Sliders


I adapted this from a post that I seen on Facebook. The issue is I changed it to fit out tastes. If I make this recipe again, I’ll be cutting the rolls in half and not cutting a chunk out of the top. That just made it complicated and messy to eat. It’s important that you tear the rolls apart, because if you don’t then they pull apart and make a huge mess.

I actually mad this for a Christmas Eve party. I premade the meatballs with my own recipe that I use for my soy cilantro meatballs. You can also use premade frozen ones if you choose. I baked them instead of froze them. After I did that All I had to do is throw it in the frying pan I have with a lid and put some water in the bottom and cooked until the water was gone. It really made the meatballs extra moist. I realized just now, I’ve never posted my soy cilantro meatball recipe, so I’ll have to do that for ya’ll. Everyone loves that recipe.

1 pack meatballs heated

1 or 2 (12 count) package of rolls, center cut out

marinara sauce

16 oz mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup butter

1/2 tablespoon garlic

Melt butter and mix with garlic. with a brush, brush insides of rolls. Layer with cheese, then put a meatball on it. Top each roll with a tablespoon of marinara sauce. Add another layer of cheese and bake at 350 degrees until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Beef Fajitas


I can’t promise you that I’ll write everyday or wont miss a week here and there…but I’m trying. Thank you all for the patience and kindness you’ve given me. I’m super behind in reading your messages, but I’m working on it! I made this recipe out of desperation and searching 100 different fajita recipes, because my been fajitas always taste like crap.

I’ve been trying to make meals at home as much as possible. Some of the meals I’ve been making are things I’ve already posted here. I have had no time to make meal plans, because things are always so chaotic. We’re actually going to burn clinic once a week right now. We’re also scheduled for surgery again this week on Thursday. I’m going to try my very best to get back into a good routine. I guess we will see what happens. I can’t wait until this is all over!

2 lbs of sirloin

2 bell pepper, sliced, various colors

1 onion, sliced

2 cloves garlic

1 tablespoon honey

1/2 juice from a lime

1 tablespoon chili powder

2 teaspoons cumin

1 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Mix all together in a pan. Put in the oven at 400 degrees. Cook until done. 15-20 minutes.

Tater Tot Casserole


I love the idea of tater tot casserole. The problem is I HATE mushrooms. Most recipes call for cream of mushroom soup. I decided to trade it out for cheddar cheese soup. It turned out pretty good. Coop was really pleased.

The other day our freezer went out.  I had to literally stuff all the contents of this huge freezer into our tiny side by side fridge. Well only half of it fit. In a state of panic I tell hubby to call his mom, let’s stuff the rest in hers and what wont fit we’ll just cook. He got everything but one ham into her freezer. He asked our neighbor to store it. Thank GOD for them!

My hubby had met this one guy who works on appliances. He decided to call him. The guy ended up coming out on a Saturday night, which we didn’t expect. I was so grateful! Now it’s fixed and all our stuff in it and ready to go!

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 can cheddar cheese soup

1 8oz bag cheddar cheese soup

1 bag tater tots

ground beef

Brown ground beef and drain. Mix with soups. Layer in a casserole dish. Top with cheddar cheese. Top with tater tots.  Bake 350 degrees until tater tots are browned.
