It's been a rough few weeks. My husband had to work 3rd shift again last night, and he was told Tuesday would be the last night. We, at this point, have no idea when he'll be back to 1st again. I've added a can of WD-40 to my shopping list. One thing I've realized, while trying to be quiet during the day, is that all my doors squeak.
I couldn't even remember what day it was this morning. Literally. With no days off, and the backwards routine, no wonder Hubby's stomach is bothering him. He loved dinner last night - chicken with hot pepper mustard sauce, wild rice and "Full Throttle" sweet potatoes.
New recipe tried - Gochujang glazed meatloaf with green beans, and steamed broccoli. The meatloaf and green part was new, I just added the broccoli. I used ground organic oats in place of "saltines" and it worked beautifully. The sauce can be bought organic with non-gmo soybeans, and you can make it yourself (which I plan to do the next time). We loved this. However, the recipe stated to cook it all the same cooking time, and the green beans do not need 55 minutes, so there was adjusting. It was our first time tasting a Korean sauce. We all loved it.
I located the recipe in a library book, but there is a recipe online with Good Housekeeping for the meatloaf.. I mixed about 2 Tbsp. Gochujang with homemade ketchup and coriander (ground) and tossed the green beans (pulled frozen garden green beans from my freezer for this), and just baked on rimmed pan until done. The green beans were a bit spicier, but my family still loved it.
Well, I have chattered on already this morning, so I'll be off to do my yoga and exercise now. If there is one good thing out of all this routine switch-a-roo, it's that I've been up earlier and to bed earlier, even though 4am or 5am beats me to my alarm.
