        I tried this recipe over the weekend. It was really good. I already have a jar of seasoning made for the next meatloaf. We did make one change and that was to double the garlic powder.

        I tried the recipe tonight and it was better than the store bought seasoning mix. My mother kind of didn't like it, no sage in the mix. I just wished there was sage in it. I love sage. Can sage be added to the mix. Please let me know.

        In response to the comment above, yes you can whatever you like to the mix. I'd start with about 1/2 a teaspoon or so, depending on how strong you like it. That's the beauty of making your own, you can put whatever you want in it!

      Our "new" Pet Bed

      Well, I'm not sure if this counts because it's more repurposing than making something... but what the heck!

      We used to live in an apartment building. One night while walking the dog I saw a broken chair laying (in several pieces) on the ground next to the dumpster. I don't know what came over me, but I...
