New Housewife and Mini Meatloafs

Ok...It's official. I have become a housewife. Ok, I still work and go to school, but on my days off, I am a housewife. I LOVE IT. Uh-oh I think I'm in trouble. I never wanted to be a housewife, but I love my husband and LOVE making a home for him.

Today, I baked a cake. A HONEYBUN Cake and it is delicious. I washed 3 loads of laundry, dried them, and folded them. I dusted my whole house. I washed dishes and picked up the junk...ok alright, my room is still messy, but hey that's why its our bedroom, no one is supposed to see it ;-) LOL On top of this, I am marinating chicken breasts to make teriyaki chicken with rice and just took mini-meatloafs out of the oven. Oh and did I mention I even slept in til about 10 am.

Here is the recipe for the meatloafs:

1lb ground beef/turkey (I use turkey)
1/2 cup Dale's seasoning
1/2 box stuffing mix
1 tablespoon Heinz 57 sauce
1/2 package (more or less by your own taste) shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 12 cup muffin pan with cooking spray. Mix the first 3 ingredients together. Fill each up on the pan 1/2 to 2/3 full of meat mixture. Once filled, brush Heinz 57 over tops of meat mixture. Bake for 40-45 minutes. Remove and top with shredded cheese. Replace in oven and cook for additional 5 minutes. Let cool and then remove from muffin pan.

I am so enjoying being a housewife (on my days off). I used to couldn't understand for the life of me why any woman would want to stay at home day in and day out and cook and clean. It was a mystery beyond my comprehension, but I had the epiphany today that gave me insight. Its fun and extremely rewarding. I have always had great respect for women who were stay at home moms and wives, and now they have my envy as well because it can be a truly fulfilling way of life, this I learned today. So I say again, my hat is off to all of those women.
