Meal Time Monday

Really, it's that time again. Sometimes it just sneaks up on me. Kinda like when I'm blogging about dinner instead of making dinner....where does time go?

Here's a list of What's For Dinner this Week at the Larsen Cafe and Bakery

Fish tacos

Shrimp Alfredo

Stuffing Meatloaf
2 lb. hamburger
1 box Stove Top Stuffing
1 egg, beaten
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 c. cranberry sauce
1/4 c. bbq sauce

Mix all ingredients together and form loaf. Place in greased 9 x 9 Pyrex pan (or regular bread loaf pan) and bake 350 deg. for 45-60 min.
If desired make a sauce to go over the cooked loaf from the following:

Leftover cranberry sauce
1 Tbsp. Worcester
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer on low for 5 min, stirring frequently. Pour over individual slices of meatloaf or on top of whole loaf, as desired.

Chili Dogs and Oven Fries
Oven Fries
6-8 large potatoes cut into strips or wedges
1 Tbsp. olive oil
chili pepper, black pepper, cumin, salt, garlic, onion powder
Mix the amount of spices you like together. Cut the potatoes, coat with olive oil, add spices and stir. Bake at 425 degrees for 45 minutes.


1 package extra wide egg noodle pasta
1/2 lb. ground Beef (add salt, pepper, onion salt to taste)
1/2 onion chopped
1 small can mushrooms
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup sour cream (I use fat free) 
splash of Worcestershire sauce 
splash of milk or water (optional)

Boil water and start cooking pasta.  Brown ground beef with chopped onion and mushrooms in a deep fry pan.  Add mushroom soup, sour cream, and Worcestershire sauce until warm.  You can add water or milk if you want to thin out the sauce.

Since it's summer I figured a few desserts won't likely kill anyone, and plus since the kids are home Thursdays are our cooking and baking days, so we need to keep them busy. This week's dessert is....

Reese's Bars

2 cubes     butter
1 c.          peanut butter


1 ¾ c      graham cracker crumbs
2 c           powdered sugar

MIX EVERYTHING TOGETHER and push into Pyrex dish (9x9 for thicker cookies or 9 x 13 for thinner ones); Chill 20 minutes

Melt 2 cups chocolate chips and spread over mixture. Freeze 1 hr, until firm.
This recipe is from my friend Brittany Macleod and it's awesome! Thank you for sharing it Britt.
