A recipe (sort of)

So, the P31 wife 'gets up while it is still dark...and provides food for her family.' Since I am destined to never be JUST like her, I choose only the second part as a model to follow. The food I make for us to eat is adequate. That's probably the best word you can use to describe it. It takes very little thought, and even littler time. So, I thought other people might want to hear about some of our favorite dishes. I like to think of my recipes as "perfect for people who could cook, but don't want to." Here's my quick and easy meatloaf:

1 package ground turkey
3/4 cup bread crumbs
1 cup shredded fat-free mozzarella cheese (or not fat-free, whatever)
1/2 small can tomato sauce with garlic and oregano (or more if you like sauce, doesn't matter)
(I'm making up measurements because I don't actually ever measure anything)

Mix first three ingredients in a bowl with your hands. Form into a loaf. (Or whatever shape you want. I've been known to make a heart-shaped dish- I call it a meatlove. Not really.) Put it in a greased pan and cook it at 350 for about 25 minutes. Then pour the sauce on the top. Cook it for about 5 more minutes, or until you get the table set, whatever. Voila! Enjoy!

I made this last night for dinner, and it was pretty good. It was very easy,too which is always a plus for me in recipes.
