Tonight’s dinner was even easier to make because I just pulled out the half of meatloaf from the freezer that I had cooked a couple of weeks ago.  If you’re going to cook it doesn’t take that much more effort to make twice as much as you’re going to eat in one sitting, especially when it’s something that is easily frozen.

So tonight we had my Meatloaf in Minutes along with a side dish of sauted onions, mushrooms, green beans and almonds.  Dinner tonight only took me 15 minutes from start to finish.


1 sliced onion
25-35 sliced cremini mushrooms
2 handfuls of fresh green beans
1/3 cup slivered almonds
1 TB Virgin Coconut Oil
2 tsp olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste


Slice up your onions and toss them into your heated pan with oil.  As they cook up clean off the mushrooms with a damp cloth.  If you wash mushrooms they become soggy.  Yuck.  Once onions have started to brown add in the mushrooms.  Do not add salt until mushrooms are brown.  At this point toss in your green beans.

In the mean time you can reheat the meatloaf in the microwave or simply serve from the crockpot.

There you go, dinner in 15 minutes.  Enjoy!
