***UPDATE 4/1/10 - I'm in the kitchen browning ground beef when I realized I browned ALL 7 lbs of ground beef...I was supposed to keep some aside for the Mini Meatloaves mentioned above.   Since ground beef is not on sale right now, I'm going to dig out a couple of frozen Starkist Seasations I have leftover in the bottom of the freezer.  We sort of got burned out on these last year and I tucked them away for another day...well, that day has come.  Improvising is always fun, right?


Enjoy!

Looks like a great plan to me! We never get tired of Mexian or Italian (pizza or spaghetti) dishes in our house. My husband asks for pizza once a week but I try to vary it to every other week and substitute it with a pasta that is similar to pizza. In fact, if you add some cut up hormel turkey pepperoni slices to your normal spaghetti meal, it gives it a great "pizza flavor."

Oooh a strawberry festival sounds fun! I haven't been to one in ages! Have a great time! If you bake anything with strawberries, please share the recipes!
