Modifications: Used a bit more sweet potato than called for, added a grated carrot to the meatloaf mixture.
Time to table: 20 mins prep, an hour bake time
Servings: 4 adults
Ben: Like, but far prefers this meatloaf
Luke: Loved chewing on a green bean, had a few bites of meatloaf
Notes: The green beans didn’t seem to get very roasted – they were still pretty crisp despite leaving them in for longer than the recipe said. I think you could put them on the sheet far earlier. I really liked the maple flavor, and Luke LOVED chewing on them a few days in a row. I also cut up a few red potatoes and tossed in olive oil, salt and pepper and roasted those as well. Ben is still iffy on green beans ever since this little incident.

Chicken marinade recipe: http://www.food.com/recipe/lemon-garlic-marinade-for-chicken-331278
Modifications: I didn’t use the sumac in the marinade.
Time to table: 45 minutes (grilled the chicken while the casserole was baking)
Servings: 3 adults, 1 toddler
Notes: I’m not a fan of green beans, so I was glad to find something that would use up all of them at once My sister came over with her two kids so we nearly ate all of the casserole, no help from Annie, who didn’t seem to like anything tonight.
I forgot to take ANY pictures so Erin hurriedly snapped one of the nearly gone casserole and of Annie “eating” so that will have to do this time.
