It’s a working Sunday!

Sunday is a day to relax…or is it? We just finished reading the local newspapers and had our usual discussion about each others paper. I read the really local one and Drew reads the big city, Lexington one. Mine didn’t have me doing the usual “why would you name your child that” comments. I still can’t believe that parents can come up with some of those names…remember that your child has to live with it for the rest of their lives!!! But, there was a really different one today that I kinda liked, I’m sure it was a combination of dad’s name, Christopher, and maybe a grandfather, Russ…Rustopher. Unusual to say the least but I still think it’s a great middle name. Drew couldn’t help but make the comment that “his” paper didn’t even mention our Herb’n Renewal seasonings and gift baskets in an article about local gift giving. He’s still scratching his head trying to figure out how come we didn’t get mentioned. Lord knows we do all that we can to support the local community with gift basket donations to a gazillion charities and folks seem to really like our herb blends. Heck, we’ve been in business for 10 years! Guess we’ll just have to work harder on getting some local publicity.

Oh well, the newspaper reading hour is over and it’s time to unload Bernie. We left a full display of our gift baskets and other goodies at Victorian Square yesterday, so the old boy is only half full. Once that chore is finished we’re going to sit down to a good old fashioned biscuit and gravy breakfast and probably a short nap afterwards. It has to be short cause I have a bunch of orders to get ready for shipping on Monday. Good news for the dust bunnies in our home…they get to live another day! Drew will be busy blending in the kitchen so he doesn’t have time to do inside work either. The poor guy walked into a dustweb the other day and commented that he felt like he was living in the Munster’s home! Geez, I really need to get better at housekeeping.

I promise that I will take the time to fix us a nice dinner this evening and I always make sure that the dust guys stay out of our home kitchen so not to worry about catching anything or any added garnishes!   Drew is a fanatic about his commercial kitchen…he’s knows better than to let me in there!  HaHa!

 So, what I am I creating tonight?  We bought more of those wonderful Yukon Gold taters at the market yesterday so they will be cooked and smashed with plenty of butter. Add that to some wonderful homegrown green beans that I froze during the summer months and a meatloaf seasoned with our Rub’n Season Beef and you’ve got a great Sunday dinner.

Here’s the recipe for a good old fashioned meatloaf…

Herb’n Meatloaf

2 lbs. Ground beef

2 tbsp. Olive oil

1 cup onion, diced

½ cup green pepper, diced

2 heaping tbsp Rub’n Season Beef

2 eggs

½ cup ketchup

½ cup milk

1 ½ cup plain bread crumbs

additional ketchup*

Saute’ peppers and onions in olive oil for 5-6 minutes. Mix with remaining ingredients, except the additional ketchup. Shape into a loaf and bake in a pre-heated 375 degree oven for 1 hour or until the juices run clear. Drain excess grease from the pan. * See note below! Allow loaf to sit for 5 minutes before slicing.

* If desired, you can coat the loaf with additional ketchup and bake for 10 more minutes. We mix ketchup with a bit of our Cajun Wing’n Season or Hot’n Sassy for some extra zing!

It’s a gloomy, rainy day in our neck of the woods so a comfort dinner will surely hit the spot! Hope you all have a great Sunday. 🙂
