Food From Friends: Cap City Meatloaf

Cap City Meatloaf

This is the original cap city recipe that was printed in the Dispatch. I have changed it a bit to make it a bit more reasonable and easier, plus I'm not a huge mushroom fan. I do make the bbq sauce exactly as is. That is the best part of this recipe! However, I use 1 lb of ground beef and then I use 1 lb of pork sausage like Jimmy Dean, or just a whole pound of ground pork. I don't bother with the 4 oz of veal.

1 lb ground beef
4 oz ground veal
10 oz ground pork
1 egg
3/4 cup bread crumbs
1 1/2 tsp chopped fresh parsley
1/2 tsp chopped fresh thyme
1/2 tsp chopped fresh sage
2 1/4 tsp minced garlic
2 1/4 tsp heavy cream
3/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 cups shitake mushrooms
2 TBS diced white onion
1 TBS olive oil

BBQ Sauce
1 1/2 cups ketchup
1 TBS Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp garlic powder
2 1/4 tsp molasses
6 TBS brown sugar
3/4 tsp salt
pinch cayenne pepper
1 tsp cider vinegar
6 TBS water
2 TBS honey
1 TBS fresh orange juice
1/4 tsp black pepper

To make bbq sauce, in medium saucepan combine first 12 ingredients. Stir well. Simmer for 20 minutes. Allow to cool.
Heat oven to 325 degrees.
In skillet, saute mushrooms and onion in olive oil until tender. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine meats, egg, bread crumbs, herbs, garlic, and cream. Mix well. Add mushrooms and onions. Add 6 TBS of previously prepared bbq sauce. Add remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Place mixture in a loaf pan, pushing down firmly to pack meat into place. cover with foil. Bake for 50-60 minutes.
Remove foil and cover meatloaf with desired amount of bbq sauce. Cook uncovered for an additional 10-15 minutes. Serve with bbq sauce.

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
