Five Things {Tag, You're It!}

I've been tagged y'all. 
My lady love Meagan thought it would be a good idea to share 5 random things about her and then tag 5 random people to do the same. It reminds me of when we would play tag as kids except I would just hide in little playhouses with my second grade boyfriend in hopes that he would kiss me. I can't remember if it worked. And if it did, homeboy apparently wasn't a good kisser. 
Well because I don't see any men standing around waiting to kiss me, I suppose I'll jump right in. 

 Jumping in quick to share with you the easiest and best meatloaf recipe kids.

1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheese
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pound ground beef

Mix all of the above together and form into six to eight mini loaves.
Place in a greased 9x13 baking dish 
Pour the topping over each loaf. 
Oh hey you probably need those ingredients now. 

--2/3 cup ketchup
--1/2 cup packed brown sugar
--1 1/2 teaspoon mustard

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. 
Serve with homemade mashed potatoes and asparagus. And wine. Don't forget the wine.

There we have it. 
5 random tid bits of information that you really didn't need to know about me.
Except the meatloaf thing. You needed to know that only because you need to make it.
Men will kiss you. Trust me. 
I tag Whitney, Shanna, Katie, Bonnie, and Brie

Don't forget to come back tomorrow for our massive blogger crush link-up partaaaaay in this hizzzzouse.
I suppose this means I should probably figure out which women I am madly in love with. 
Never thought I'd have that item on my to do list.. 
Oh one last thing. The promo code YELLOW5 over at miss chic ends Friday so if you are planning on making yourself sexy, you better get on it. 

Today's featured superstar is Kimmie from Sugar and Dots
Also known as my speaking partner in crime at the Elevate Conference. Holler. Kimmie's blog is growing faster than wild fire and I think I have a good idea why. She is hilarious. And pretty as a peach. And genuine. And sends funny emails. And because all of her greatest life lessons she learned at Target. She is a straight up California girl who has a massive heart for her family and really just people in general. 
Make sure to also check out her weekly link-up party What I Whipped Up Wednesday where all you creative people can go show off how awesome your skills are. If you haven't met Kimmie you haven't started truly living. It's that big of a deal people.

    New follower!



  38. OMG!!! After reading this post last night, I decided I had to try your recipe. And holy bejeezus, it's the best meatloaf I've ever had. I did use ground turkey instead and only 1/2 cup of cheese to make it a little healthier, but of course kept the topping! Delish! Thank you for sharing!!!!

  39. I made your meatloaf tonight and it was hecka good! And soooo easy! Since they do kilos here in China, I got a little confused with the conversion and bought two pounds of ground beef instead! So, I doubled the recipe and now we're set for dinner for the next week or so! haha. It was delicious! Thank you for sharing! We ate ours with a side of mashed cauliflower (it was pretty good! That was my first time to try it!). You know what would go good with that meat loaf.. mac and cheese baby. ;) What does mac and cheese not go good with???!

  40. I've never been a fan of meatloaf but I'm going to have to try it now. Thanks for the recipe!

  41. I am your newest follower and absolutely adore your blog! And it feels so good to see someone else who is obsessed with meatloaf and mashed potatoes!


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
