Meatloaf and Rosemary Potatoes Pin It

What a fun week doing the CrockPotPalooza!! WOOHOO!

Day 5 in underway at Chez Quick and I’m busy in the kitchen!

Today’s menu is….


Who knew? Meatloaf in the CROCK POT!

I’m not actually making this for tonight because it’s FRIDAY!

And Friday is PIZZA night at my house! Gotta love that!

But I am making a double batch of this for the first time and I really can’t wait to taste it!

I’m going to serve the first one tomorrow (Saturday) so that means a lazy relaxing day all day.

No time to worry about what’s for dinner!

Just take it out of the fridge in the morning… plop it in the crock pot and enjoy the day!

The other one will go in the freezer for another no-brainer dinner!

How cool is that?

Plus….Everyone in my house Loooooovess meatloaf so there will be no arm twisting going on.

Just silence… and chewing! Ahhhhh music to my ears!

Yeah! That’s what I’m talking about.

Are you ready?

I’m ready…. let’s GO!
