Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatloaf (And A Side Of Supernatural)!

It's

FUNTASTIC FRIDAY
at THE REALM!


It's been a
crazy-chaotic-awesome
week for me.


How was your week?


Are you TGIF'ing tonight?







I've been in overdrive all week as I wrap up my final assignments in my Humanities class (which I have absolutely loved) and polish up my final essay (a comparison of Dante's Divine Comedy and Michelangelo's Last Judgment). I've also been working towards completing the leadership training for The National Society of Leadership and Success. On top of that, it was a huge "writer" week for me. I had two anthologies featuring my work to release, was officially listed as an Amazon and Goodreads Author, and finally hit over 500 Likes on my Facebook Fan Page. My website now features a book store where you can shop for In Creeps The Night and Through The Portal. #BusyWriter


Today is my firstborn's 23rd birthday!
Where did all those years disappear to so fast?

Happy 23rd Birthday Austin!

He now has his own place, his own family, and his own son. I just can't believe he's all grown up. I'm so proud of him, but at times I miss that little freckled nose crinkled up in laughter. They really do grow up so fast. Too fast.

Happy Birthday to "Thing 1"- who will always be my baby, no matter how old or tall he gets. He's working a long shift tonight so any celebrating will have to wait.That's what happens when you grow up! #FeelingOld

Last Funtastic Friday we had a movie, game, and Pizanga night. FYI- the new remake of Stephen King's Carrie. I loved it. Of course, the homeschool mom in me cringed at every stereotypical jab, but the rest was good. I liked Julianne Moore as the crazy-religious mother from hell. I also really enjoyed the young actress playing Carrie- Chloe Grace Moretz. She has this amazing innocence about her that really worked well for the role. Long story short, I gave it 5 stars on Netflix and would recommend it. It stuck to the story pretty well, following along with the preceding film adaptation, and adding a few things that gave it new flare. #TwoThumbsUp




So, after this exhausting week, what are our plans for this
Funtastic Friday?


Tonight in Tennessee, it's cloudy with a chance of meatloaf! Due to the nasty weather making it unfit for man or beast to be out and about, we will be having a family game/movie night again.

But first, let's talk about dinner.  Hubby won the Lego-Build-Off last week so he gets to pick tonight. He's asked me to fix his fave- my Seasoned Meatloaf. #Yummy

2.5-3 lbs fresh lean ground beef (can use ground turkey)

2 eggs

1/2 cup of water

1/2 cup of ketchup

15 crushed saltine crackers

1/4 cup diced onions (optional)

1/4 cup diced red and green peppers (I do 1/8th cup of each- this is also optional)


 

 

Seasoning Blend:

1 teaspoon McCormick Montreal Seasoning

1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash Onion and Herb Seasoning

1/2 teaspoon Morton's Nature's Seasoning

1/2 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned salt

1/2 teaspoon of Parsley (flakes)

1/4 teaspoon Crushed Black Pepper

1/4 teaspoon Paprika





*Set aside:
1/4 cup of ketchup (for later)



How to:


Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Mix all the above ingredients (except for the 1/4th cup of ketchup you set aside for later)

hint: You'll want to use your hands and get in there and really mush it all together (yuck!)

Shape the mix into a loaf and place on an ungreased baking sheet

Kilgore, Meatloaf
Cheat: Line with foil for easy clean up!


Bake at 375 for 55 minutes

Remove from oven (I take a spoon and scoop all the grease off the pan now) and pour the 1/4th cup of ketchup you set aside over the top of the loaf- use the back of a spoon to spread it evenly across the top of the meatloaf so it has a nice even coating of ketchup over the top.

Put back in oven for 10 minutes

Slice and serve!

Party On Garth, It's Raining Meatloaf!

Is there any other kind?


Hubby likes me to serve mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, dinner rolls, and sweet tea with this meatloaf- yum!








Game Time: It's my turn to pick and I'm going to give them a break this time and choose something other than Scrabble. We'll be playing Tribond. Winner will get to pick next Funtastic Friday's meal. #Iwant2win

After Little Man's all tucked in for the night, Hubby and I plan to watch the premiere episode of Supernatural, season 10. #Pie

I miss Paul! =(
After that, I think we will try to watch Hours.


 Have you seen it? 

Thoughts?


It will be the first Paul Walker movie I've watched since his fatal car crash. It still makes me so sad that he's gone. #SadPanda


Is it movie night at your house? 
What are you watching?





Not really into a movie night? Or maybe you've seen both of these?



Well, how about a FUNTASTIC read? (Or two!) *Shameless Plug* No, not really. I'm not going to tell you to get these because my stories, or poems, or pictures are in them. *Yes I Am!* You'll want to read these for all the stories in them. It is such an honor to have my work featured with such incredible talent! Some of my very favorite authors are featured in these anthologies. #Books

Scary good fun!
Avalable in e-book and trade paperback
If you are looking for a great seasonal read, In Creeps TheNight is to die for this Halloween. 

You'll absolutely love "Ink" by Joni Lynn, "Golden Years" by S. R. Karfelt, and "Silenced" by LaDonna Cole. Hopefully you'll enjoy my "Nightfall's Wraith" as well. #Spooky

There are also 46 other authors to scare the pants off you!

Everything from ghosts, goblins, monsters, and all things "bump in the night" can be found in this creeptastic anthology. 

All royalties go to the fantastic charity Mothers Without Borders


 *Cool fact: We actually held the number 2 spot on Amazon's top 100 in horror- with Stephen King in third. That's right- we toppled the King with our anthology! If that's not a testament to the talent within, I don't know what is!

  

Not into the creepy? No problem!

Portals Are Everywhere!
Available in e-book and trade paperback
Through The Portal from the authors of Read Write Muse has something for everyone! 

From pizza and talking dogs to puddle jumping and chocolate! Fight evil villains, hitch a ride with innocent souls, root for the good guys (or the bad), and peer into the final portal awaiting us all. #PortalsAreEverywhere

There's everything from laughter to tears, quips and quotes, poetry and photography, fiction and non-fiction, and more!

Beyond the fabulous portal stories is a great cause- this book is dedicated to those we love who have battled cancer. It's in memory of those who have passed through that final portal, and in honor of those still fighting on this side.


Read Write Muse will donate $1 per book sold to a cancer related charity for one year.


If a movie night isn't your cup of tea, check out one (or both) of these great anthologies and find your new favorite author(s) inside! I'll actually be curling up with both of these before heading to dreamland tonight. I love that these stories are short, so I can stop reading when I get too sleepy.

That's my Funtastic Friday

Ian and I are having pizza and the two with the stomach issues are having pancake muffins. We're watching God's Not Dead. It's rainy and cold here in Indiana too. Your meatloaf looks yummy!
