Next time you make meatloaf, add some italian sausage, and instead of breadcrumbs, use Stove Top stuffing mix...trust me, it's delicious!

Nah, I use a jar of Nance's Chili Sauce and some chopped jalapenos. I use 90% ground beef and parboil it first. 2 eggs, Italian breadcrumbs, and a little cracked pepper. I paint the top with ketchup for color. Simple, easy, with a nice little kick. It works best with 2 lbs of beef. I use a glass loaf pan (or 2) so I can see how it's doing on the bottom.

I'll have to try the Stove Top. It never occurred to me.

I also have a thing for kielbasa, cut in short lengths, split lengthwise, and grilled with bbq sauce. Makes nice sandwiches on kaiser rolls.

A man after my own heart, one of my favorite items to grill. That caramelized BBQ sauce on there is to die for.

Another easy grill favorite is cilantro lime shrimp...put the peeled/deveined shrimp in a Ziploc bag, add the zest of one lime, juice of said lime, olive oil, fresh minced garlic, fresh chopped cilantro, salt and fresh ground black pepper, marinate for a few hours, skewer up, and grill.

Sounds good, but large shrimp around here are quite expensive. We have a large Polish community here so fresh kielbasa can be found in local delis. Much better than national brands.

My aunt from the French side of the family made a lemon chicken that was to die for, but she added something that she didn't tell anyone about. Basically it was chicken breast fillets grilled in a pan with canola oil and lemon juice, served over noodles. I tried to copy it, but it wasn't the same.

my grandma uses a "secret" family recipe . One of those recipes that she couldn't tell you the measurements if she wanted to cause they've all cooked for a living and never use measuring tools . But I know that the sauce she covers it in has ketchup brown sugar and something else and then she layers it in bacon over the top and it is phenomenal .

Nice! My wife does something like that where she cooks by what she knows and how it tastes rather than actual measurements. Naturally, then, when I ask her about it she cannot give me a direct recipe.

Wonderful! Thank you! To me a perfect meal is colcannon, soda bread, some stew and either a cuppa tea, Guinness, or Baileys. Ahhh, comfort food!


Thanks again!

+1. I will be thinking about this when I have my most likely dinner tonight of fish, salad (no dressing), and fresh fruit. Sigh...
