Rain, Shine or Tornado's, the Game Must Go On!

We were hit with terrible tornadoes Wednesday. The town of Moody was hit hard & has a lot of damage! I thought there was no way David would have a t-ball game but I was wrong. Baseball must go on!

There was some damage to the ball field. The t-ball field lost a dug out!

After the game, we went home. Our church is having a dessert auction tomorrow so I baked while the kids took a nap. I will post more about that tomorrow. :)

For dinner, I experimented. My family is so sweet & make wonderful guinea pigs! We all agreed that it turned out pretty good. I made a cheese stuffed meatloaf & mac & cheese cups. I think the next time, I will not bake it as long & probably not put as much cheese.

Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf
1 lb ground beef
1 cup ketsup
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups Italian bread crumbs
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1. Combine everything but the cheese.
2. Divide meat mixture into thirds; spread one-third in bottom of an ungreased 9x5 loaf pan. Cover with half the cheese. Repeat layers, ending with meat.
3. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
