I had some leftover smashed potatoes in the fridge and a couple of pounds of ground beef.  Meatloaf with mushroom gravy, potato pancakes, and peas.

Real basic and really good.  I do enjoy meatloaf.  I should have let this one sit for a few minutes before slicing into it, but we were ready for dinner.  It crumbled a bit but that’s what gravy is for.

The potato pancakes were crispy-crunchy on the outside, and feathery-light on the inside.  Just like mama used to make.

While the meatloaf was baking, Victor decided we needed dessert, so he made a pineapple upside-down cake.


It was realy good, too.  And we have leftovers of everything.
