Meat and Potatoes...Hmmmm...

Well I was totally inspired to cook this meal after watching food network this morning being they are doing comfort food weekend so I made one of my favorite comfort foods..Meatloaf and Potatoes with of course my twist not like everyone elses moms meatloaf its mine all mine!  LOL lots of local fresh ingredients and well love and time from my lets see what you think of what I made...send me COMMENTS!  Now on with I did  here we go...

Meatloaf yummy...I took ground beef and left over chorizo I finely chopped 2 slices of onion 4 garlic cloves yellow pepper and orange pepper salt pepper egg ketchup and i didnt use bread crumbs i used mashed potato yes that is correct...i said it instant potatoes lol I was out of bread crumbs so had to find something to bind it...well i mixed allt hat together well and then into the pan in the oven and baked for about 45 minutes on 350 degrees and it came out perfect juicy and delicious...try it next time no bread crumbs use the potato flakes lol its a great trick and holds moisture better then the bread crumbs i glazed the out side with a little worcestershire sauce and ketchup and let it caramelize DELICIOUS!!!!!

On to the potatoes which I have to give credit to my mother-in-law she made something similar I can never duplicate them and she said she doesn't do recipes so I tried to break it down...I took mini red potatos cut them in half then boiled them....till soft...I added garlic and red onion diced small and finely and cilantro I added olive oil and a little apple cider vinegar   salt and pepper...I mixed it well and then let them sit and cool to room temp together to allow the potatoes to soak up all the flavor and I must say "HELLO WHY AREN'T COOKING THIS NOW?"  They are so good makes you want to know why you were missing these and want to hit They are truly that great...Well another day has gone by and less stress for once and I am glad for that and to end it with a great meal...I did cheat for dessert though I had Little Debbies Zebra Cakes LOL I know a cheat but I had to they are so good...

Well until tomorrow enjoy your food and take the time to invest in making it great...

Peace Love and Chicken Grease!
