Foodie Sunday


Tonight's dinner was an experiment making gourmet out of leftovers.  On Friday night, I made a large amount of rather spicy meatloaf with turkey and bison.

Plenty of leftovers.

Which lead to tonight with Meatloaf au Duvet" or simpler still "Gourmet Stromboli".  This came to me while jogging with Oliver and Dave in the park this afternoon.

I was craving swiss chard for some reason.  And mushrooms.

One of my favorite simple white bread recipes was used to make the crust. Browned some mushroom slices and leeks with butter, and chopped a bunch of raw swiss chard.

This was layered over the thinly sliced cold meat loaf on the rolled dough, topping with parmesan cheese shavings and mozzarella cheese.  Sealed shut and pierced with a fork so that it could vent whilst cooking.

Served this with a simple cucumber, onion, and fresh dill salad and an easy bean/corn salsa.

I guess I was also craving apple cider vinegar.  Go figure.

Very Good.

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
