Quick dinner

Today we all went for a long walk to enjoy the beautiful fall.  All of us were beat when we got back plus it was close to dinner-time, so I went to Whole Foods and looked at their prepared food case.

I bought a sweet potato/potato mix and corn fritters there.  I bought an already prepared, raw meatloaf from the butcher, and some frozen, french cut green beans in the frozen foods.

I came home and put the meatloaf in the 450 degree oven.  Remember, my stove is always on, I thought it would cook faster in the hot oven, and with the soft heat of the Aga the increased temperature won't cook it all wacky.  In a regular oven I would cook it as directed.

I put the corn fritters and potatoes in a greased, Pyrex baking dish.  They are warming in the 350 degree oven.  To grease the baking dish, I just poured in a little olive oil, then rubbed it around with a small paper towel.

After about 20 minutes, I will start steaming the green beans in a pot with a steamer under the beans.  I will cook them for about 20 min. because I like green beans a little on the soft side.

I will butter both the potatoes and the beans.
