Monday's meal

I stole an entire meal idea from Courtney over at the South Austin Dinner Co-op.

And I have to say, this turned out to be one of my favorites. Courtney mentioned that she mistakenly added the ketchup into the "meet"loaf instead of just using it as a garnish and I thought the mix seemed a little dry so I added it in too. Still, I didn't add much (about a 1/2 cup?) and I was really pleasantly surprised at how moist the muffins turned out (yes, I made my meetloaves into muffins too). I will definitely make this meal again, though I might use mini-loaf pans instead and serve it with gravy on the side (to be added to the loaf or the potatoes).

But, oh, the beet and carrot slaw. That was divine! I'm reposting the recipe here just b/c it was so good it deserves to be seen prior to the jump!

Beet and Carrot Slaw
1/4 cup orange juice
2 teaspoons red-wine vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
coarse salt and ground pepper
1 medium bunch of beets with greens
2 medium carrots, grated

In a large bowl whisk together the juice, oil, vinegar and mustard; season with salt and pepper. Cut the greens off the beets; discard stems and cut leaves into 1/4 inch wide strips. Peel and grate beets. Add to bowl along with beet leaves and carrots. Toss.

This recipe comes from Everyday Food, I'm pretty sure.

Big props to Courtney for putting this meal idea together!

Last, on a slightly sad note, I'm going to miss the co-op for the next few weeks while I take a break. Thankfully, we've got a sub stepping in (and hopefully she'll be blogging here soon). I'm going to miss these dinners and we'll really be looking forward to getting back in the rotation soon!
