A couple of weeks ago I picked up a package of ground turkey at the store for dinner, but I had no idea what I wanted to do with it. So when I got home I opened the fridge, looked around and started to take things out and put it on the counter. I sorted out a few items and what was left became a meatloaf. It was delicious. I tried it again, this time using the same ingredients but figuring out how much of what to put in and it was still great. So I present it to you to try and enjoy.
