Mini Barbeque Turkey Meatloaves with Sweet Potato Fries and Green Beans
(see recipe below)

Zucchini Soup 
(recipe to follow later in the week)


3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons smoked or reg. paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
salt and pepper
1/4 cup barbeque sauce, plus extra for tops of meatloaves
1/4 cup rolled oats
1 egg
1 - 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Mix brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, cayenne pepper, cumin, salt and pepper, egg and rolled oats in a bowl.  Add ground turkey and mix well.  Scoop meatloaf mixture onto a greased muffin tin, filling each muffin pocket 3/4 full.  Bake for 20 minutes, add desired amount of extra barbeque sauce on top of each meatloaf and bake 5-10 minutes more.  Should yield 10 or 11 mini meatloaves.
Serve with frozen sweet potato fries (Trader Joe's are the best!) and steamed frozen green beans. 

Meatloaf is my favorite last minute, easy dinner.  You can take any hamburger recipe and turn it into meatloaf just by adding an egg, rolled oats or breadcrumbs, and whatever kind of sauce matches the recipes flavors.  Assemble the meatloaf mixture in the morning while the kids are at school.  Later, pop them in the oven with your favorite frozen potato or side dish and dinner is ready in 25 minutes!  There is no standing over the stove while kids are pulling on your leg, screaming for attention.  The oven does all of the work while we play.  (Kitchen dance parties are my favorite way to get through the bewitching hour.  Raffi, Justin Roberts and Dan Zane are a few favorites!)
