The CLEANEST meatloaf ever

Ha I know It's not on a plate! Mainly because it usually doesn't make it off the baking sheet lol! We pick at it all night long, its hilarious how Jon and I act like 6 year old's with food. SOOOOO how can meatloaf NOT be messy you ask? I can feel your disbelief radiating off my laptop screen right now.
Go into your kitchen and grab that handy dandy gallon sized zip lock bag and dump all the ingredients into it. 
Beef was on sale this week so I went nuts and bought 8 lbs of it and froze most of it.

On a side note just to share the strange happening. On my way home from work tonight (it had been dark for almost 2 hours) something pooped on my windshield. I say something because I am pretty positive that once the sun goes down, birds sleep. I think for the first and probably last time in my life a bat pooped on my car.

Curried Breaded Chicken

Trying to take a healthy approach for the next month we sort of depended on take out for awhile with this internship going on. Chicken has been our go to ingredient for dinners lately and this one came out amazing for looking so plain Jane! Its so fragrant too! We just got about 6 inches of snow which caused schools to be closed yesterday :[ So I had a day of fun meal planning and came up with an absurd  recipe using my rice cooker for... meat. >> Not so sure how it will come out but I think it will be somewhat like a pressure cooker only slower and fill the apartment with wonderful smells.

Super easy stromboli

This is the most delicious stromboli and its so easy to make. Don't pass this up when you have some kind of event coming up. This is the kind that you slice and walk away with it, not the "lets make it look pretty on a plate" meal. BIG THANKS to Almost Bourdain's Ellie for putting me on her awesome site for shout outs!
Got to get a new camera I just realized one of the cats chewed the wire a bit so now I have to strategically wiggle the wire around until it connects on the computer : / got a bunch of recipes done and lined up to post so check back a few time this week :D

Roasted Spaghetti Squash

So I have been absent lately and also have been strapped for cash and the things I have been making are literally chicken breast with salt and pepper cooked in butter. Not much use for this blog which is for experimenting :/ I also started my Internship (third time grrr...) and have been busy and very tired so yea, instant mashed potatoes have been my buddy lately lol.
