Did you know this stuff has HFCS in it? I had no clue until the other day I just decided to make sure they didn't add anything besides the spices in there and sure enough it was the second ingredient! I was shocked! Maybe you don't care, sorry for bringing it up if you don't , but I was clueless so thought I would say that just in case!

1 lb. lean or extra lean ground beef - lean is very important!
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1 can diced tomatoes, drained (I use the basil, oregano, & garlic kind)
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 egg
Ketchup
Brown sugar

Mix first 6 ingredients together well. Pack into loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Meanwhile, mix together ketchup and brown sugar for sauce (to taste). Pour off any grease on top of meatloaf. Top meatloaf with sauce. Bake for another 5-10 minutes. Enjoy!

Thank you thank you thank you!

Rachel, I recently bought canned tomatoes and THEN read the label and saw the HFCS -- I couldn't believe it. So now I am very careful to get the kind with just tomatoes (when we can afford it, I get the Muir Glen Fire-roasted kind). It's unbelievable what they will stick sugar and HFCS into, isn't it?!?!

Wow, I wouldn't have thought that, either! I still drink at least 2 full-HFCS Cokes a day.

Well at least you know what you are getting with those! I have them some, too, but don't want DS having the HFCS.

Our plans for dinner have changed (it's just too hot to stay inside making pizza)
We will have for our little party:
The Jalapeno popper dip (will let you know how it turns out)
Adobo Shortribs (marinated in 1/4c shoyu, 3/4c vinegar, and about a T brown sugar) on the grill
Apple/onion turkey burgers
Brats
Mocha Chocolate Chip cookies
White chocolate macadamia nut cookies
A cold noodle salad (with tuna, mayo, carrots, curry powder, cherry tomatoes, onion)
and whatever my friends make to bring

My DH is also going to make his Tropical Lemonades (he made these up when he was a bartender)--fresh squeezed lemon juice, malibu, ice, and a little sprite--delicious!!!!

We're eating at a nice seafood restaurant tonight. I'm going to have crab legs, boiled shrimp, grilled shrimp, and a baked potato. My whole family will be in town for my DS1's Kindergarten graduation.

OMG, it was awesome!! I got the recipe from here, but I used fresh jalapenos instead of canned. I put panko on top and baked it. Served it with tortilla chips.
