Comfort Food Meal Plan

Last weekend was my dad’s birthday, and as we do every year, we cooked him a birthday meal of his choosing.  And it was a GOOD ONE, if I do say so myself 🙂

The only parameters he gave us were that he wanted meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and green beans.  Comfort food to the max, which would be even more perfect on a cold winter day.  But we sure didn’t mind the 65 degree weather!

I’m not a huge meatloaf fan, and had never made one before, but this recipe was the bomb dot com.  Thank you Tyler Florence!  Everyone devoured it, and the leftovers were delish, too.

Try out this menu sometime!

BrowniesBetty Crocker rocks.  These are my family’s go-to brownies, available in any grocery store.  (Unless Mom’s making her Cheesecake Brownies, which I haven’t yet mastered).

Make it a great weekend, everyone!

Cheers,
