Cheeseburger Meatloaf--A New Fave!

A few months ago, I saw a similar creation at a local meal-preparation business. I wasn't the one preparing this particular meal, so I really didn't know any of the seasonings, etc., just the basic concept. But I thought it sounded great! So a couple of weeks ago, I experimented with making it. It turned out pretty well, but the seasonings needed tweaking. I decided to go with the same seasonings that I use for our favorite grilled burgers. So yesterday I tried it again and it was a HOME RUN! This one is definitely going in our *favorites* file!

Cheeseburger Meatloaf

1-1/2 lbs. ground beef
2 Tbls. flour
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
3/4 cup plain dry bread crumbs
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
Pickle Relish (sweet or dill)
Sliced Cheese
BBQ Sauce
Combine the ground beef in a large bowl with the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, bread crumbs, egg and milk. Mix very well. Then, after covering the countertop with a large piece of wax paper or plastic wrap, pat the ground beef mixture out into a large rectangle. Like this:

Next, using modest amounts, drizzle the meat with ketchup and mustard. Start out with small amounts, you can always add more if it doesn't seem to be enough.

Spread the mixture all over the meat with a knife until you have a nice blend.

Now take your pickle relish and spread it over the layer of ketchup and mustard. I used sweet relish because that's what I had, but I would think dill relish would be wonderful, too.

Now it's time for your cheese. Just place slices all over the meat. You could use shredded, too. I used sliced cheddar. American cheese would probably melt even better, but my kids are cheese snobs, so I can't buy the stuff because they won't eat it...LOL

Now it's time to roll up the meatloaf. Using the end of your plastic wrap or wax paper, lift up the meat and begin to roll it up jelly-roll-style.

Place the loaf, seam side down, in a baking dish.

Then take your BBQ sauce and give the outside of the meatloaf a nice coating.

Bake uncovered at 350F for about 1 hour.

It's ready to slice and serve! This is so good because you get some of that saucy goodness in everybite. The jelly-roll-style roll up technique is one of my favorite things about this recipe! That and the delicious taste! I hope you enjoy this, too.

Making Notebooks

Recently I tried out a new craft idea~and it was SO much fun!! And extremely frugal, too. That's always a bonus, right? So here we go: 1. Take your basic composition notebook (purchased at the back-to-school sales for .99 each). 2. Go to your craft supplies and get your Mod Podge ready, along with a good paintbrush. 3. Look through all those scrapbook papers you've been randomly collecting and choose some. 3. After choosing your paper for the cover of your book and trimming it to fit, start *painting* the cover with the glue. Next, give the back of your paper a good coat of glue, too. (I left the binding uncovered so that I could use a contrasting paper there later on). 4. Glue it on! Remember to smooth out any air bubbles under the paper. 5. Flip the cover open and make a few cuts on the corners so that they will fold over nice and neat, then add a little more glue to the edges of the inside cover and a little more to the paper edges. 6. Fold them over a

The Making of an Egyptian Death Mask

We are learning all about the ancient world this year with Story of the World I and loving it! We've been learning a lot about Egypt, of course, which is completely fascinating. Most recently we have studied the New Kingdom of Egypt, which includes the story of King Tut. So we decided making an Egyptian death mask in the style of King Tut's would be a fun project. First since it was too cold at the time to paper mache in the garage (it probably would have frozen instead of dried-ha) and it was too messy to do it in the house, we decided to pick up a couple of cheap craft masks at Hobby Lobby. Next we cut out cardboard shapes to complete the shape of the death mask, attaching them with hot glue. Vince even put a little detail on the *beard* with the hot glue per The Princess' request. Then the kiddos started to paint them with this metallic gold tempera paint. It worked okay for the cardboard, but would not coat the plastic of the mask. We thought maybe a second c

Door Hanger Chore Charts

My kids have had a chore chart for a while.  It's one of those magnetic boards and they share it.  However, it's not by their rooms and often they (and I) forget to update it.  Plus it's a little bulky.   When I saw the concept of a door hanger chore chart on Pinterest, I loved it!  It was compact, right there were the kiddos could see it coming out and going into their rooms, and it costs almost nothing to make.   I headed over to one of my favorite stores: Hobby Lobby, of course.  They  have these little wooden door hangers for .79.  I also grabbed a couple of packets of decorative buttons for $1.99 each.  I already had the clothes pins and the paint so those cost me nothing.   I began by painting the door hangers (I used tempera paints because that's what I had).  Then I grabbed a fine point Sharpie and the clothes pins and started writing chores on them, making sure to write them correctly so they will clip on the right direction.   The left
