So, I may have mentioned (haven't I?) that Crock Pot Meatloaf is made just like regular meatloaf. Then it's put into the slow cooker on Low and cooked all day.

I used (this time) ~2lbs ground turkey, ~1lb ground beef, 3 bread heels soaked in 2 eggs and ~1/3 cup of milk, the other container of diced tomatoes, 1 package dried onion soup, some BBQ sauce, some A-1 sauce, parsley, salt & pepper and I think that's all. Sometimes I toss in oatmeal, or seasoned bread crumbs, or the last of the pasta sauce. Depends what I have that I think belongs in meatloaf. If the family compliments me on it, I tell them, "Enjoy it. It will probably never be just like this again."

(inspired by the TV show Psyche)

CornBean Baconsen (1 can, 2 cans, 1/2lb)
Timothy Onionslice (1, sliced thin)
Kristen NelCelery (4 stalks, chopped)
Dijon Hill (3 tablespoons)
James Sweet Baby Ray (5 tablespoons)
Marjoram Lawson
Special Psyche Ingredient (1 can)

In a baking dish (not the lasagna dish, the smaller one), cook the bacon until it's done but still soft. Drain most of the fat and remove the bacon. DON'T WASH THE DISH. Lay onion slices on the bottom of the dish (just one layer), celery on top of that. Tear the bacon into bite sized pieces and put atop the celery. Drain the Special Ingredient, reserving the liquid. Drain beans and corn. Combine beans with Special Ingredient juice, Dijon, bbq sauce and marjoram. Spread the Special Ingredient on top of the bacon, then spoon the bean mixture on top of this. Top with a layer of corn. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 25-40 minutes. Serve with biscuits or bread & butter.

Anyone who watches Psyche regularly will know the Special Ingredient. If you don't, but want to, ask me in Comments.

I've made a Meal Plan for next week, but don't want to post it yet, because my Gomez is home and I want to run it past him first, in case he has requests. Once I've done that, I'll be back with the Meal Plan and the Shopping List. I've done Inventory already.

Tomorrow, Premise #2: Know What You Have, Use What You've Bought.
