Teter Tot Picnic

Teter Creek Lake was today's picnic spot. . . and the menu did include a red potato salad!

Mini Meatloaf with Pepper Glaze
New Potato Salad and Peas
Fresh Fruit Salad
Seven Grain Menu

was the menu of the day.

The mini meatloaves were inspired by Clean Eating Magazine.   We shared one ramekin loaf and made sandwiches on New Day Bakery Seven Grain Bread.  Yes Bob brought his complimentary mustard.

6 oz. Lean Ground Beef
1/4 cup Bread Crumbs (mine were made with Seven Grain Toasted Bread)
1/4 cup Fresh Corn on the Cob, cooked and cut off the cob
1 Tbsp. Tomato Paste, no added salt
1/2 Egg
1/4 tsp. Chili Powder
Mix and portion into 2 ramekins, sprayed with Pam. Brush with Glaze.

1 mini Sweet Pepper
1/2 Tbsp. Fresh Lime Juice
1 tsp. Honey

Bake at 375 for approximately 30 minutes, or until center of loaves reach 165 degrees. 

Mine is garnished with a mix of garden vegetables:
Cherry Tomatoes, quartered
Mexican Tomato, diced
Sweet Pepper, diced

The New Potato and Pea Salad was marinated in a German Potato Salad Dressing.  I drain it this morning.

German Potato Salad Dressing

2 tsp. Sugar
2 Tbsp. Cider Vinegar
2 Tbsp. Water
1/8 tsp. Dry Mustard
1/4 tsp. Mrs. Dash

Cook until thick in double boiler.

 I always bring fresh flowers from home.

 We had coffee on a rock by the lake.

This makes us very happy!  I'm no longer sad to start a work week!
