Swedish Meatballs

I can remember eating these from the time I was little.  I honestly can’t remember who it was that passed on the recipe, but I do know these Swedish Meatballs were always part of a Christmas Eve gathering we attended every year when I was a kid.

Making your own meatballs is easy, doesn’t take that long and they taste so much better than frozen meatballs. Even if you don’t make the meatballs yourself, you should at least try them with this sauce!

Brown Sugar Glazed Meatloaf

What a weekend!!!  Saturday I decided to clean and sort the storage under our basement stairs.  While it was a nice trip down memory lane, it was also a big crazy mess.  Thankfully Dillon was at home (part of the reason I decided to do it on a Saturday lol), so I could use his muscles to deal with the heavy stuff for me! It took all day Saturday and by that night and most of Sunday I could barely move lol.  Guess it’s all part of the growing old thing.  While I did accomplish what I set out to do, dinners on both days were more rush jobs than actual planning!

Saturday we settled for jarred pasta sauce with meatballs and pasta.  On Sunday I at least had the foresight to take some ground beef out of the freezer and was able to make this delicious Brown Sugar Glazed Meatloaf that I served with garlic mashed potatoes and green beans!

French Onion Meatballs

When we did groceries on Saturday (we put it off a day because of a flipping snowstorm!), I found extra lean ground beef on sale and ended up buying about 10 lbs. of it lol.  There are so many different ways to prepare meals using ground beef I just couldn’t help myself! I separated it all and left about a pound and a half out to make dinner on Sunday.  Sunday’s dinner ended up being some very flavourful French Onion Meatballs that I served with Microwave mashed potatoes and veggies and everyone’s plates were cleaned!

Because I was only feeding the meatballs to Chris and Dillon, I was able to freeze a pan of it to freeze for another meal! I was just saying to Chris last night that I am getting far enough ahead with my Freezer Meals that I could probably go a full two weeks without cooking if I wanted now!  How awesome is that lol?

Taco Meatloaf

Yes, another taco meat recipe…. and another meatloaf recipe…. can’t help myself…. we all love almost any kind of “Mexican” based foods.  This recipe combines the taste of taco meat into a cheesy topped meatloaf! And to make things even better, this recipe makes 2 medium sized meatloaves, so you can have one for dinner the night you make it and freeze the other one for a quick meal another day!

Cheese Stuffed Spicy Meatballs

I have to admit…. these are spicy.  Chris told me his nose was starting to run when he was eating them lol… but it didn’t stop him, or Dillon for that matter, from eating them!

Stuffed meatballs are quick and easy to make, freeze well (without the sauce) and make a great dinner.

We actually had a few left… believe it or not with “the boys” appetites… and when I made Chili for dinner a few nights later, Dillon suggested I chop the leftovers up and throw them in with the chili to use them up.  They added a little more beef to the chili and a little bit more bite to the chili.  It was a very good suggestion on his part!

Instapot Goulash

When trying to decide what to make for dinner the other night, I realized I had yet to try anything in the Instapot with ground beef.  I decided to go full on with this recipe by starting with frozen ground beef because I remember reading somewhere that the Instapot could do ground beef quickly as well as it’s other benefits!

Chris took a look at his plate last night and asked if I made hamburger helper lol, I told him no, it’s Goulash…. Dillon damn near licked his plate and then told me it was “Goulashicous” lol!

French Onion Beef Casserole

I completely forgot about dinner the other night. It was about 2 hours before and I still had no clue what I was going to make.  I had a look in the freezer and on the pantry shelf and came out with ground beef, macaroni noodles and French onion soup mix and decided to combine them with some green onion, minced garlic, broth and grated parmesan for a casserole that had both Chris and Dillon cleaning their plates!
