now the husband doesn't eat mac and cheese, so i needed to do something for his dinner. at the store today i was able to score some cheap meat. god i love cheap meat. i found some ground beef, 500g for £1.25. i think that works out to about a pound of ground beef for $2.35. i took about an inch off the end of the block and cooked that up plain so i could mix it into some veg dishes for my son. i divided the rest of the block in half. one half i set aside for dinner, the other half i divided in half again and froze those two lumps for future use.
dinner would be a quick meatloaf.

slacker loaf
1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 small onion finely diced
1/4 bell pepper, any color finely diced
onion powder, garlic powder, s/p, bbq seasoning

so i mixed up the meat with my chopped veggies. i sprinkled in various seasoning i happen to have in my collection, a bit of onion powder, garlic powder, some mexican flavored salt- it smells smokey, black pepper, and powdered bbq seasoning. once everything was mixed up i put it in a small baking tin and banged it in the oven at 350 for like 30min. basically it's like an oven baked burger. husband ate half with another serving for eating later.
i used half of the ground beef i cooked for my son in some veggie lasagna, i chopped up the lasagna really fine and stirred in the meat. the kid ate it up.
