Onion Mushroom Meatloaf/Sweet Potato Fries/Salad and Raw Baby Carrots

Yes, it was as good as it looks!

Tahini Garlic Salad Dressing
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons flavored vinegar ( I used basil vinegar I made with basil from my garden)
1 teaspoon Honey Dijon Mustard
1/2 teaspoon garlic paste or more to taste
2 teaspoons tahini

Pumpkin seeds (Optional...to sprinkle on top of salad)

Add all ingredients to a bottle and shake well. Toss with your favorite salad ingredients ( I used lettuce, red peppers, tomato, chopped avocado and chopped apple) Spoon onto a plate and sprinkle some pumpkin seeds on top.

Onion Mushroom Meatloaf
1 pound lean hamburger
1 to 1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms (reserve a few to garnish the top)
1 large onion chopped fine
1/2 pepper (I used red)
2 eggs
3/4 cups seasoned bread crumbs
1 package onion soup mix
pepper to taste
3/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix all the ingredients (except cheese and reserved mushrooms) together in a large bowl. After you've mixed it well, spoon into a large loaf pan or an 8x8 inch baking pan. Top with reserved mushrooms. Bake for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle on cheese. Bake another 15 minutes.

Bon App├ętit!



  1. Looks so delicious! Would love to participate in Mr. Linky but I still haven't gotten used to photographing my food before I eat it and we've been eating a good bit of take out lately. :(

  2. Mom, I was going to make lamb stew tonight to post for this but when I went to make it I discovered I had forgotten to take the meat out of the freezer! Now I'm not inspired to make anything (home alone anyway) and not really hungry. Next time.
