Meatloaf

Meatloaf - an all time favorite.

1 lb. ground grassfed beef
1/2 zucchini cuts into chunks
1 cup shredded carrots
2 cloves garlic
1/2 white onion cut into chunks
3 oz. tomato paste
1 egg
2 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl put the ground beef. In a food processor, combine the zucchini, carrots, onions and garlic and pulse a couple of times until everything becomes finely chopped but NOT pureed! Put the veggie mixture into the bowl with the ground beef and add the egg, tomato paste, dried parsley and salt and mix well with your hands.
After everything is mixed, shape the meat into a log or loaf and put in a 8 x 8 pyrex. Bake at 350 degrees for 1hr 15mins.
I will be serving mine with some roasted sweet potatoes and salad!

"Kitchen Sink" Frittata

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals. I must say I do get bored of eating the same ol hard boiled or poached eggs. So today I thought I should change it up a bit. I made a frittata with whatever I had in the refrigerator.
1/2 jalapeno chopped
1/2 white onion chopped
1 small sweet potato chopped
6 slices canadian bacon chopped
4 mushrooms chopped
2 slices roasted bellpeppers (from Trader Joe's) chopped
6 eggs
2 slices cooked bacon crumbled

Saute the onion and sweet potato in butter until the onions become translucent and potatoes a little soft. Add in the mushrooms, jalapenos, bellpeppers and canadian bacon and cook for about 3 mins mixing frequently.
Crack the eggs into the pan spacing them out. Add the bacon and put the lid on the pan and lower the heat. Let it cook on low for about 10 mins., take the lid off and make sure the eggs are not runny. Sprinkle with chesse if you wish and enjoy!
