Oh my gosh.....I think spring is on the horizon!
We celebrated with a trip to the sanctuary on Sunday. Kellen thought it was amazing and it was so fun to watch him smile ear to ear. Here are a few pictures of our outing:
Following our busy afternoon a comforting meal was needed. Ron and I love meatloaf and love putting together new recipes. I had heard of using Stove Top in meatloaf before, but wanted to create my own spin. We do not normally use Stove Top, but the flavors worked fantastic for a quick meatloaf recipe. In addition to the stuffing mix, we used eggs and ketchup. The meatloaf was delicious and the glaze was perfect sweetness. Kellen also enjoyed the meal, but I think the peas were his favorite! Ron declared that this was his favorite meatloaf we had made so far. This is a pretty big deal since it beat his favorite blue cheese and bacon meatloaf!
Happy April everyone!
