Scrumptious Salisbury Steak in Mushroom Gravy
I'd never thought of adding poultry seasoning to ground beef before but it definitely made the meat delicious. I'll probably start using it in my meatloaf too. I used seasoned bread crumbs instead of the cracker crumbs, fresh mushrooms instead of canned and half milk and half beef broth for the gravy. I found that this resulted in very bland gravy, so I quickly dissolved a couple tablespoons of bouillon in some hot water and added that to the gravy, plus a ton of pepper. I did end up adding a bit of corn starch water too because I like a thick gravy. It was wonderful. Hearty and comforting. Will make again!

Eggnog Gingerbread Trifle
This was pretty good. I did use creamy Cool Whip instead of home made and also doubled the recipe so I'd have a full trifle bowl. (I gave it 5 stars because I changed the recipe and don't believe in giving anything less than 5 stars if I don't follow the recipe exactly.) I was able to find the gingerbread mix (look for it near the brownie mixes instead of the cake mixes) but actually think the spice cake mix suggested by many might taste even better. (I'm a big fan of spice cake.) It definitely makes an impressive dessert as a trifle should!

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
