Messy Fun: Meat Loaf Minis


It’s Memorial Weekend! That one extra day really feels like an extra week to me! I suddenly find myself wanting to do ALL these things I haven’t done in awhile: sorting closets, rearranging furniture, hanging up some art I bought from Bali, hiking new trails, making waffles… In the spirit of this fun and productive weekend, I decided to have some fun with our dinner plates too. For dinner, I made meat loaf minis, lemony broccoli, and homemade waffles.
