Mmmmmm dinner

I don't often attempt such an involved meal during the week, but this is what we had for dinner tonight.

Mini Pork Meatloaves

1 lb ground pork (serves three, make a pound and a half to serve four, upping the other ingredients)

3 plum tomatoes, peeled and diced (about a cup's worth)

1 onion diced and sauted in a little olive oil

2 slices of whole wheat bread, toasted and broken into little bits

Parlsey, a handful chopped

Salt and pepper

Method: mix the above together in a bowl. Lightly grease a muffin tin. Pack the meat mixture into the cups. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes, or until a meat thermometer registers 170 degrees.

Rice with Pureed Pumpkin

Half an onion, chopped fine

Sage and thyme

Salt and pepper

1-2 cups pureed pumpkin (or butternut squash)

2 cups leftover rice

Method: saute the onion in a little olive oil. Add the other ingredients and cook until hot.

Green Vegetable

My mother believed that a meal should include two vegetables and that the vegetables should be two different colors. Tonight I made wax beans to compliment the pumpkin.
