Wednesday Musings

Baby it's cold outside and that winter mix is headed our way. But doesn't the white stuff make the holidays a bit more festive?  And we could all use a little more festive right? Here are a few things on the radar today....

Marbilized Tapers - I've been on the hunt for reasonably priced tapered candles that are marbilized. Voila - Etsy delivers as usual.  Love these and they come in many color combinations for year-round use.  Will make great stocking stuffers and they offer free shipping but you'd better hurry!

Recipe/Muffin Tin Meatloaf - Want a very easy and very good quick dinner your family will love?  Try this Muffin Tin Meatloaf dish.  I used a muffin tin and a few small lidded dished (the ones I make onion soup in).  Serves 6 generously.

1 lb ground beef and 1 lb ground pork

2 eggs

1 c breadcrumbs

2 oz grated Parmesan cheese

2 medium shallots finely chopped

1/4 c tomato paste

1 1/2 Tb garlic

salt and pepper to taste

2 T olive oil

1 1/2 c ketchup

1 tsp paprika

1 T chopped rosemary

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Mix together beef and pork in a large bowl along with eggs, breadcrumbs, cheese, tomato paste, garlic, salt and pepper.  Brush the muffin cups with oil (I used Pam) and place meat mixture in muffin cups.  Bake 12-13 minutes.  Stir together ketchup, paprika and 1 1/2 t rosemary in small bowl.  Spoon this mixture over the meat in the muffin trays.  Put back in oven and cook another 6-10 minutes.   Sprinkle remaining rosemary on the meatloaf before serving.

Ortigia Candles - On my updated "to give" and "to get" list.  Love the look, the smell, the packaging. It's so exotic.

Truffle Shuffle - one of the most unique gifts you'll ever get or give. I am the recipient of a great treat, a Truffle Shuffle class that I will experience in early 2021.   From the French Laundry (the SFO famed restaurant) comes this small unique company that offers Zoom cooking sessions with celebrity appearances. They ship you everything you need.  Pick a date and time and Zoom in. Stay tuned.

Sabre Flatware - I'd love to add a set of this flatware to my home dining collection. It's so French.
