The Blog Tech's Favorite Meal

After highs in the 90's for weeks, we've had slightly cooler weather so I thought I would make The Blog Tech one of his favorite meals. Mini meatloaves, mashed potatoes, creamed spinach and roasted carrots and broccoli.
 After I made the mini meatloaves, I wrapped them in bacon.  Using thin sliced bacon works well when making these.

 I serve them sitting on garlic toasts so I made some with leftover ciabatta.

 The creamed spinach is made with a parmesan bechamel sauce.

 I really like making mini meatloaves because they are perfect one portion servings. 

 I sent them over to he and his fiance topped with chive mashed potatoes and surrounded with garlic roasted broccoli and honey butter roasted carrots.

And topped with dollops of creamed spinach and a hearty beef gravy to pour over everything.  The temps didn't quite cool off and my kitchen was about 120 degrees but my kids thought it was worth it.
