Just a picture today

I didn't have time to transcribe this recipe last night. This is a turkey meat loaf from The Best Light Recipes. I really wanted some new diabetic cookbooks but I hit Ollie's first last weekend and I stocked up on some great healthy cookbooks instead. Most healthy cookbooks look at the big picture these days (instead of just being low-fat or just being low-carb). I bought so many cookbooks at Ollie's that I couldn't justify a trip to the bookstore for some actual diabetic cookbooks.

It doesn't look like diet is helping my gestational diabetes much anyhow. My fasting number is still a trouble spot even though I've been beyond compliant. It's frustrating.

For the bake sale, I ended up making red velvet cupcakes with whipped cream cheese frosting (from a box and a can!) and then I made pineapple gooey butter cakes. I was planning on making a King Arthur whole grain recipe for a peach-oatmeal bread but I just wasn't up to making a new recipe, especially since I couldn't eat it. I was surprised that my local grocery store did have the Duncan Hines Red Velvet Cake Mix. It's good stuff! When I saw that I was going to make those and the peach-oatmeal bread but I forgot to buy and thaw out the peaches. So I went back and got the ingredients for the Gooey Butter Cakes.

And that's why I didn't get around to transcribing this meat loaf recipe last night. It was good. I made it the night before and then I sliced it and grilled it on the Griddler the night we ate it. My son asked for more so I guess he liked it. He asked for barbecue sauce though. Guess who he learned that from?

Hopefully I'll get that recipe posted tonight.

When I saw the pic, I was wondering how you got grill marks on meatloaf!! I take it your griddler is working again?

Looks good. I don't think I've ever had turkey meatloaf.

I never tried turkey meatloaf, either but this sure is tempting me!
