I just started THM last week, and the first dinner I decided to make was Meatloaf--one of my husband's childhood favorites. I was not raised eating meat so it was my first time cooking it, and I went back and forth between making Serene's recipe or Pearl's. In the end I decided to make a hybrid! I used 1 lb ground turkey meat, because that's what we usually use for tacos or burgers, and I added 2 eggs, salt, pepper, garlic powder, celery, Braggs, and a bit of sour cream. So after mixing a few ingredients from both recipes I decided to up the veggie content and added some steamed and blended broccoli, a handful of blended spinach, and a few finely chopped mushrooms. To finish it off I iced it with tomato paste and added a little bit of water around the loaf as it baked.
The result? VERY tasty! I loved the addition of the tomato paste because we would usually add ketchup but the paste made that unnecessary. The veggies blended very well--only note is that the spinach gave it a SLIGHT green tint, which didn't both us one bit All in all, it was a very yummy dinner and we had left overs for two days to munch on!

missyhi: Looking for pumpkin spice fuel pull cookies, made them last week and now I can't find the recipe thanks!

steffanie3: Hmm, I haven't seen it missyhi, I will look a bit though because that sounds great Can you type it in your address bar on your computer? Sometimes when I start typing it will remember titles on sites I have been on and be enough to pull it up.
