#ad Mini Ground Chicken Meatloaf | Recipe

Meatloaf, to me is the #1 comfort food. I decided to put a twist on it and make it with ground chicken this time. Oooh Meatloaf. Every time I make meatloaf I always think of the very first time I made it. I know I have shared that story before, but it has been a long time.

I had just moved into a larger apartment, Hubby (who was Boyfriend at the time) was coming over and I wanted to make him one of my childhood favorites. Meatloaf. I was SO excited to be sharing this meal and the memories associated with it, with him. I got everything gathered together to get started on the meal. I prepped the peppers and onions, browned the meat, mixed up the sauce......wait something wasn't right. I was confused at what step I missed and asked Hubby to come in the kitchen to see if he knew where I went wrong. I just didn't understand how everything was supposed to stay together. "I keep trying to form it into a loaf and it keeps falling apart. What in the world?" I asked. 

You guys! He BUSTED up laughing. I mean seriously could not contain himself laughing! I had no idea what in the world he could be laughing at!

Then he said it. The words I will NEVER EVER forget. "Brandi, when you make meatloaf you aren't supposed to brown the meat first." WHAT!  Oh I was so mad at myself! We ended up having spaghetti that night instead of meatloaf. Looking back I laugh so hard when I tell this story, at the time it was NOT funny, but it sure is now!
This is a pretty simple meatloaf recipe. All you need is 2 pounds of ground chicken, 2 eggs, Worcestershire Sauce, oats and salt and pepper to taste. That's it.
 Place all of your ingredients into a large bowl, remember to not brown the meat first.  ;-)
 Thoroughly mix all of your ingredients together and form into balls.
Place each ball into a muffin cup, be sure to spray with cooking spray first.
Next, you will want to make the sauce. All you need is some ketchup and brown sugar.
Pour into a measuring cup, or bowl, and mix well.
Pour a spoonful of sauce over each mini meatloaf before placing in the oven.

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f

Granny's Flitters

I love my family!  There are so many things I love about each person and also about all of us as a whole.  One of the things I love about my family is we love traditions. Today I am going to share just one of the many traditions we have.....FLITTERS! To me when I think of comfort food, I think of Flitters.  It was a special morning to wake up to the delicious smell of flitters frying in the morning.  It is one smell that every time I smell I am brought right back to childhood and great memories. I am not really sure where the name "flitters" came from or if someone just made it up.  I can tell you how it got started though! My Great, Great Uncle Orville's mom (Grandma Cook) baked bread.  On the days she would make extra bread dough she would invite all of her grandkids over for a flitter night.  She would make her bread and then the extra dough she would roll out, cut into strips and fry up for the kids to enjoy.  That tradition was then passed to my
