Talking Wonderful Wednesday

GOOD NOVEMBER AFTERNOON MAGNOLIAS☺♫

It is currently 55°s with SW wind at 9 mph and 53% humidity. It is the humidity that I don’t like at all and never did get used to it when living in TN. Not much going on this day. I did receive my two new crocks to store my cooking utensils in and they have a divided crock thing that has 3 compartments that do come out if you desire. I got a red one and a blue one and have them both filled now. Wooden type things in one and metal in the other. I have pulled out a few things that I will put in the motor-home in a drawer. Will got his new coffee pot and we will see how it performs.

JEAN Every time I make a meatloaf I make it different for I don’t follow a recipe but here is what I put in the one I made yesterday and it was excellent we both thought.

MEATLOAF a la MAGGIE
Chop up into small pieces and mix together in a large bowl:
½ of a yellow onion
Several celery stalks
Several little carrots
Mushrooms
Add and mix together thoroughly:
Catsup
One whole egg, beaten
A cup of bread crumbs
1 packet dry onion soup
Freshly ground black pepper
Worchester Sauce
Onion powder
Italian seasonings
2# lean sirloin burger
3 hot Italian sausage lengths (casings removed)
Place all in a meatloaf pan making the top flat
Bake for 1 hour & 15 minutes in a 375° oven
Paint the top of the meatloaf with a mixture of catsup and Splenda Brown™
Continue to bake for an additional 15 minutes.

SUSAN I have a dry rub mix which I have named:
Will’s Rub since he does the smoking in the Barbie.
Rub it on @ 2 hours before smoking or cooking it in the oven.
¼ cup paprika
⅔ cup chili powder
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground nutmeg
2 tsp ground dry mustard
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp dry mesquite flavored seasoning mix
2 Tbsp garlic salt
1 Tbsp black pepper
1 cup packed brown sugar (I use Splenda®Brown)
I pull back the skin on the turkey breast and cover it with the mix then put the skin back on and cook it either in the house or on the Barbie. There is enough mix to use at a later time and it stores well.

DONNA FAYE Hopefully your repairs aren't too spendy and not a major problem. Your knitting projects are good as usual. Sounds like the Holiday Inn there puts on a go to event that is worth going to. Enjoy!

Have a great afternoon/evening my Magnolia friends.
Always remember ~ A setback is only a setup for a comeback.
