A meatloaf in a cast iron skillet is very good I have dont it before.
One of those deep ones would be nice for a hungry family.

I cooked mine in the loaf pan sitting in a 12 inch skillet.'
This was to avoid overflows into the oven.

I third Nan and imp, rajun. Thanks! If I offended you yesterday asking about cooking fails I'm sorry. I didn't realize how it looked until I logged back in.
Worth, I use either lean or extra lean ground beef and bread crumbs when I occasionally make meatloaf. My mom always used the fatty stuff when she made meatloaf. It would be soaking in grease when it was done and usually made me sick. Thanks for the reminder about overflow. Cleaning the oven is high on my lease favorite chores in the kitchen. I ate a salad and broiled fish for supper.

No offense taken, I thought it was a compliment. We're all human and we make mistakes so don't worry about it.

I hope your salad and fish was great!!!

Really nice looking tasso Rajun!


A few day's ago, Golden Corral had an ad on television inviting all veterans to come in for a free meal on veterans day. I've always felt uncomfortable doing that, but decided this year; I would take them up on the offer. I checked the web page last night to see what time they open their buffet and couldn't find my local Golden Corral. I did some digging and found a notice that my local Golden Corral is "Closed Permanently". I know they were still serving a couple of days ago when I drove by. I hope I didn't put them out of business by deciding to take them up on their free meal offer.


I decided today to try rutabaga for the first time. I wanted to try a maple syrup coated rutabaga chunk recipe in the air fryer. I needed to do some shopping at Walmart and checked to see if they had some rutabaga in the vegetable area. They had about six or seven large ones and I picked one up to put in the bag. It was softer than an over ripe peach. I checked the others and they were also super soft. I'm not an expert on rutabaga, but really soft rutabaga didn't seem right to me so my recipe will have to wait for when I find some fresh rutabaga. I almost bought a package of parsnip but decided to wait until I know how I want to cook them. I should have bought the parsnip because my wife is planing on slow cooking a pot roast all day tomorrow. As I was cutting the veggies up for the pot, I kept thinking I should have bought the parsnip, I should have bought the parsnip.

giblet soup.

this is something i will make while i am waiting for a chicken or better yet a turkey to roast. i simmer the liver, gizzard, neck, heart, and feet in a pot until they are cooked.
take them out to cool before dicing up giblets. chicken feet make a great addition to the stock pot if you have access to them. we process our own meat birds, so always have them unless we run out of chicken. next, into the pot go carrots, celery, onions, and garlic, salt, pepper, basil and oregano. i went out to the garden and got a few leaves of
kale, and some parsley from under the snow, and added them to the pot. when the veggies were about half cooked, i added some dry white rice to the pot. next, goes in some frozen corn. we like corn in soup. wait a few minutes. add the diced up giblets to the pot, and done.
this soup has a different flavor than my chicken soup using the carcass. it eats up
just fine and gets you warmed up for the main event, roast chicken.

Back to food!!


I packed up the tasso for the freezer. One pork butt yielded 9 packs for future use and I could've took more meat off the bone but I made pork roast with it.

I am making soup from all Vegetables and Tomatoes pulled from Angel Field Farms today to celebrate the end of our farming season as cold weather comes in today.
