Tip Tuesday – Getting Rid of Leftovers

 

Does your family hate leftovers? Sometimes it’s hard to get them eager to eat something they ate the night before, but it’s even harder to throw away all that food.  Next time you want to clean out the fridge try making it fun.  Create a quick restaurant style menu that has all your leftovers on it.  We had great success and our families thought it was fun.  Sure we wouldn’t encourage anyone to “cook to order” on any other night, but this is actually pretty easy.  Just have them circle what they want off the menu about 10-15 mins before dinner.  Most everything on your menu will be a quick reheat in the microwave! If you wanted to make it really fun you could even take turns being the waiter and actually go around the table and take everyone’s order.  Even dad and the kids can prepare a microwaved meal every once in a while!

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

 

Today represents a time in history that reminds us to stand up for our rights, and what is right. It reminds us that our voices do make a difference.  Although it may sometimes feel like our efforts are small and unrecognized, it is important to continue working towards the “right” thing.  Equality is still lacking out there.

This cartoon depicts how sometimes we site of what we are complaining about.

Food Friday – Mini Meat loaf with Spinach and Blue Cheese

 

If your family likes meatloaf, you’ll love these. These individual sized loafs are great for serving and what a great way to sneak in additional veggies. The spinach doesn’t alter the flavor at all. The blue cheese is subtle yet gives a little added flavor. If you like your meatloaf with ketchup or BBQ just add a little to tops of each muffin!

 

 

 

Ingredients

1 ½ pounds lean ground beef

¾ cup crumbled blue cheese

½ cup diced onion

½ cup Italian breadcrumbs

½ cup chopped fresh spinach

2 eggs

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Directions

1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a large muffin pan with cooking spray.

2. Combine ground beef, blue cheese, onion, bread crumbs, spinach, eggs, and Worcestershire sauce in a large bowl until well blended. Divide meat mixture evenly into the prepared muffin pan.

3. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Tip Tuesday

The Flu is sweeping the nation early this year and it seems to be a bad one. With that in mind out tip is a little off the cuff but might help with your Flu symptoms or may even prevent you from getting it all together. Going back hundreds of years, the onion has been said to be the secret weapon of farmers, grandmas and even ancient Chinese medicine. Simply cut the ends off an onion and place in a bowl in the rooms around the house. The onions absorb bacteria floating in the air and speed up recover time. Having these onions around regularly can even prevent you from getting colds and Flu’s. To read more about onions, their benefit and stories from others, visit these links below:
