Comfort Food & Testing the Oven

Having run all errands and pondering what to prep for supper tonight, I thought I would go for comfort food - a meatloaf, roasted red potatoes in olive oil with rosemary and thyme, and a beet salad.

Of course, this meant giving the old industrial quality oven it's first trial run and I can say that it's spot on temperature-wise and the meatloaf smells like heaven. I experimented with the ingredients (making it a bit more Italian than I usually do)  and will post the results if they are positive and the meal is yummy. Otherwise, I'll chuck it, make a turkey sandwich, and call it a day. I'll post a picture of the monster when I have the time.

The grocery shopping yielded a whole Turkey Breast, 3 pounds of Italian sausage, and 4 pounds of chicken wings. Baby spinach, cabbage, and 2 baguettes.  All on sale, btw.  The breast will be another comfort food evening, sausage for sausage and peppers, and the wings for a quick meal with a salad when I'm too tired to cook otherwise. All, except for the turkey breast, are wrapped in small packages for individual menus.

It's almost time for dinner, which means it's time for olives...so Cheers!

And so it goes.
