  • french fries, cabbage & noodles (or plain buttered noodles), rice cooked in beef broth, hash browns, baked potatoes (you may as well since the oven is already on).

  • What vegetables do you have in the house? What whole grains do you have in the house?

  • I like to take whole potatoes (russet, or bakers, are best) wash them and cut them into circles about 1/2 inch thick, take a baking sheet, spray it with Pam, and put the potato slices face down on it, brush them with olive oil and sprinkle with black pepper and salt, then flip them over and repeat the olive oil and spices, then bake for 30 minutes, flip and bake another 30 minutes. Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, they are always a big hit in my family.

  • while the meatloaf is cooking you could put a pasta or rice casserole on with it, that way you wouldn't have to do much attending to the food. Also a great trick for meatloaf is to put a couple of slices of bread on the bottom of the pan for grease absorbing. Just spray the bottom of the pan first so the bread doesn't stick in the end.
