Family Traditions

Remember the days when you sat in Grandma's kitchen while she cooked?With all those wonderful smells you could hardly control yourself untilit was time to eat. Carry on those same traditions with your family. They will be treasured forever.

Tummy Warming Family Traditions (with recipes)

Meat loaf, mashed potatoes and string beans are my kids' favorite meal. Sunday dinner at Grandma's house was always this delicious pairing and my family continued the tradition.

You can prepare this meat loaf using ground turkey rather than ground round if you prefer. But this combination of items makes husbands as well as children smile.

You can mix all the ingredients for the meatloaf and refrigerate in a glass loaf pan. The meatloaf will be ready to put in the oven. This is a special meal for the whole family. The orange potatoes are a special vegetable enriched dish with carrots.
