Dinner Tonight

We have all been under the weather with colds and are in the need of some comfort food, so this is the dinner menu tonight and we have had it all before and it is ALL very yummy.
Mini Meatloaves:
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1 tsp. salt
1lb ground beef
2/3 cup ketchup
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 12/ tsp. mustard
Preheat oven to 350. In a bowl, combine egg, milk, cheese, oats, and salt. Add the beef, mixing well and form into 8 mini meatloaves. Place them in a lightly greased 9x13 baking dish.
In a separate bowl, combine the ketchup, brown sugar and mustard. Stir and spread over each meatloaf.
Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 45 minutes.

Paula Deens Mac-n-Cheese
4 cups cooked macaroni (2cups dried)
2 cups grated cheese
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup sour cream
4 T. butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
Cook macaroni and drain. Mix all ingredients together bake at 350 for 30-45minutes

Sweet corn

Dessert: Strawberry Shortcake
Homemade Biscuits (grandma's recipe)
Mix together:
3 cups flour
4T baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup sugar
Cut in 2/3 cup shortening until fine. Mix 1 cup buttermilk in and make into a ball.
Put onto floured board and press down. Cut out biscuits with a glass. Bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes. The key to this recipe are to cut them out thick (1-2inches). You will only get about 6 biscuits with this recipe but they are sooooo good.

We are using them as our shortcake and will add strawberries and whip cream or ice cream. Yummy!!!!!!!!!

Ok......so, I won't be able to eat for the next 3 days but I will be happy tonight!!!!
