Meat and Potatoes Menu Idea – Comfort Food

meatloaf, mashed potatoes and brussels sprouts

Just a couple of days ago, it was supposed to be Spring already but the weather was just not cooperating. On yet another too cold and too wet day here in Atlanta, I needed something comforting. Meat and potatoes go together like Tweedledee and Tweedledum and they make me happy.

So, dinner consisted of me deciding to eat a couple of Denise’s recipes because we don’t get to try each others food very often and serve it with some deliciously creamy mashed potatoes.

If you are still somewhere cold, this may be just the meal for you tonight because it just doesn’t taste the same when it is 83 and sunny (the weather today in Atlanta).

Meatloaf  (without the bacon since I was adding prosciutto to the sprouts)

Brussels Sprouts with Prosciutto – because if I’m going to have a green veggie with my meat and potatoes menu then it needs to have some pork!

Mashed Potatoes (I wanted something more comforting so I made them with cream and butter and milk instead of Greek yogurt and chicken stock like I usually do…sometimes you just need the fat to warm you up!)

Ahhh. This was just what the doctor ordered. I’ll hit the gym extra hard tomorrow!!
