Riley Loves Cars

28.1.11

"Riley is looking so much older lately :( slowly losing his baby look. He's always got a dinky car in hand. For some reason his hair is looking red in this photo, but it is more blond."

This post is a bit of a mishmash. I have been searching for some new healthy recipes and came across this one. It is SO GOOD! We all enjoy meatloaf, and this really spices it up into a one casserole dish meal.We substituted the ground beef and used ground turkey instead. Riley only ate the zucchini off of the top. He picked the most healthy part! haha
