what's the difference, right? Okay okay!! So there's a big difference, but
whatever. I'm talking about my meal for tonight. I'm going to be making good
use of the crock pot again, this time with a .
MAGIC CROCK POT MEATLOAF
- 2 lb. ground chuck
- 1/2 c. green pepper, chopped
- 1/2 c. onion, chopped
- 1 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 c. cracker crumbs
- 1 egg
- 1 (7/8 oz.) pkg. brown gravy mix
- 1 c. milk
- 6-8 sm. potatoes, cut up
Mix all ingredients except potatoes in large bowl. Shape into a loaf and
place in the crock pot. Place potatoes at the sides of loaf. (If potatoes
wrap in foil to keep from darkening.) Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours
or high 4-6 hours.
Then, I'm going to be even more domestic and stuff and make a .
Chocolate cake and icing
- 1 chocolate cake mix
- 2 beaten eggs
- 1 capful almond extract, optional
- 1 can cherry pie filling
Beat eggs and add cherries and cake mix and then mix. Bake in 9 by 13 pan
at 350 for 30 minutes or so or until cake is done in the middle. The
toothpick method doesn't really work because of the moistness of the
cherries, so I just use the tip of my finger and when the cake feels kind of
springy, it is done.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup milk
- 5 tablespoons butter
Cook for one minute after it comes to a boil. Add one cup chocolate chips
and beat and add nuts if you wish. I use walnuts or pecans, but the
frosting is just as good without them.
I can't wait to try both of these recipes because they both sound so
good!!!!. Normally I wait until after I've tried a recipe to post it, but
not this time. The meatloaf I got from a list, and the cake I got from
someone in a chat room. Now, if only the dishwasher would stop so that I can
take the crock out of it and get things started ...
