Crockpot Meatloaf Stuffed with Mozzarella

Do you love meatloaf, cheese and want to try something different for dinner?  This is a great one to try!  When we do this one again, I may forgo to the ketchup/bbq glaze and use a pasta sauce instead. Ingredients for the Meatloaf: 2 lbs ground beef 1 cup breadcrumbs (I used the Italian flavored)…

Crockpot French Onion Soup

Day 15 – Winter Grind Coffee Stout

On Tuesday, December 15th, 2020 our beer of the night is a coffee stout by Mother’s Brewing Company out of Springfield, Missouri. This coffee stout isn’t too bad… just don’t let it sit too long.  At 6% it is smooth – no bitter flavor at all.  This isn’t one that really made us want to…

Day 12 – Xocoveza

On Saturday, December 12th, 2020 our beer of the day is Xocoveza – an imperial stout inspired by Mexican hot chocolate… yes, our eyes were pretty wide open when we read that one. Our cats, Milo and Oliver, were a bit stand-offish about this one, too… This beer is definitely one of a kind.  With…
