Dinner tonight!

Looking forward to dinner this evening---got the oven on and the food baking.
Turkey meatloaf, sliced sweet and regular potatoes "chips", and halved brussel sprouts and broccoli...all baking.
Potatoes were sliced 1/4" thick, put in bowl with a splash of olive oil, a clove of minced garlic and a touch of salt and spread on a cookie sheet
Broccoli and sprouts got a tiny touch of oil, spread on cookie sheet
and the turkey recipe follows...I had less turkey (and not extra lean), 1 egg + some whites, 1/2 onion, 1 big stalk celery, 1 small zucchini grated, 1/2 cup oats, 1 can diced tomatoes-no salt, marinara sauce, less salt, pepper.  Took longer to cook at a higher heat.  more like 1 hour at 400F.  Very son had thirds!
