Foodie Friday - Fathers Day Edition

Hosted by

Sunday is Fathers Day here in the USA, I'm not sure how world wide this holiday is, but I like to make a big deal out of it. I'm a Daddy's girl through and through, and I'm married to a man that is a pretty awesome Daddy to our kids.  I've also been privileged to have a wonderful Father in Law.
I'd show you what I'm getting Mark, but I want it to be a surprise for him (and I have no idea if he'll read this post).

On to our recipe for the week. When I married Mark I quickly learned one of his favorite meals was Meatloaf, and his favorite veggie is carrots. So what do I have for you today?

Stuffing Meat Loaf with Steamed Carrots
2 lbs ground beef
1 16oz Stove Top Stuffing Mix (any flavor)
1 cup water
2 eggs
1/2 cup barbeque sauce, divided

Preheat oven to 400 F.
Mix all the ingredients together, leaving 1/4 cup bbq sauce aside.
Shape the meat into 4 small loaves. Place them side by side on a baking sheet.  Top with the remaining bbq sauce.
Bake 30 minutes or until cooked through. Cut each loaf in half to serve. We enjoy ours with steamed carrots mixed with a little melted butter and salt and pepper to taste.

Since we've got this Fathers Day Theme, I asked Mark to pick out this weeks features. He felt a little overwhelmed with all the recipes to go through, but he narrowed his choices down to the following.

Sausage Cheese Balls from Momma of 4 Cutiez

Creamy Cauliflower Penne from Everyday Vegan Girl
