Southwest Turkey Meatloaf is a great family dinner! It has a variety of ingredients and is full of protein! We love meatloaf and I enjoy using turkey to make it a little healthier. You can add additional toppings of your choice for extra flavor!
I have Mondays off of work and enjoy spending part of my day preparing a yummy dinner for my family! We were in San Diego, California for my cousin’s wedding over the weekend and ate a couple drive-through meals on the six-hour ride home. I was sick of cheeseburgers and french fries and wanted a good meal to satisfy my healthy cravings! Southwest Turkey Meatloaf was a perfect choice and my family loved it!
My kids were in the wedding as a flower girl and the ring bearer and they were so beautiful! They did a great job and I was so proud of them! The wedding was absolutely gorgeous and every detail was amazing! It was wonderful to see a lot of my family and celebrate a special day!
