*Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes*

We had meatloaf and mashed potatoes one day last week

With lots of gravy

With homemade mashed potatoes, lumps and all....tee hee!!!

A little bit of green.....yummy green beans!!!

I love my white dishes...I think home cooked meals look so pretty against the whiteness of the plate.

What color plates do you have?  Prefer?

Everything is better with lots, and lots of gravy!!
I even found vegan gravy at the store :)

Green beans are one of my favorite veggies!!!
SOOOOO yummy and low carb too!

Meatloaf, homemade by me with lots of love.  Love is my main ingredient in all my dishes...

Fred has come out :)
Fred has been guarding my home for about twelve years now...he is very much loved here.
He is the first to come out to get Fall started.
I have a lot of Fall decor to share with you, but I must first share Fred, my darling sweet Fred.
My daughter who is now grown will say, I thought he was so much bigger...well, my darling daughter, when you were ten, he was rather big to you, but now, you have grown up and he is now much smaller.  To me, he has always been the same.  He is a little sun worn...but is in rather good shape.
He has seen a lot go on in this household and he has traveled across the country a few times...LOL.
He is loyal and kind and he is my Fred :)
