Comfort to Can

trash can.
I knew I had some ground beef thawing for dinner and have been thinking all day what I was going to do with it.  Out of nowhere I started thinking about Mom's meatloaf and homemade mac and cheese... so decision was made.  I even went to Earth Fare for some real sharp cheddar cheese and smoked mozzarella.
  making the roue: flour (white and wheat), mustard, s&p, light butter
  Trying to make it grown up I threw in a piece of bacon
with a side of grossness

I was so disappointed with the meatloaf.  I added ketchup, oats, panko crumbs, evaporated milk, and an egg
Make me gag! this was after I already took our pieces off.  Justin thought it was fine but mine went down the drain.. just like ALL of the leftovers.  What a bummer.
I even splurged on quality cheese!

Well, I obviously needed a comeback after that flop so I made a weight watcher friendly, honey bun cake!
Make half the cake then put 1/2 cup brown sugar and 2 tsp of cinnamon in the middle
After baking drizzle with glaze (powdered sugar, vanilla and skim milk)
Then, if you are like me, have a slice or two for dinner!
with a big ol' glass of milk!

I actually made this cake to take to school tomorrow.  Wednesday is the last day for our peer helpers.  They have been great... a little wild, but very entertaining!!

  1. This is definitely a comfort meal!! Looks so good- I can't remember the last time I had homemade mac and cheese, and that honey bun cake sounds to die for!!
