1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 cup tomato juice (I use one of the little 5.5 fl oz cans that comes in a 6 pak)
3/4 cup Quaker Oats (quick or old fashioned)
1 egg beaten
1/4 cup chopped onion
pinch of salt and pepper and a little garlic powder
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Press into a loaf pan. Drizzle catsup over the top of the meatloaf before baking 1 hour at 350* letting stand at least 5 minutes after that hour. Drain any grease and serve.

It was good to see their sweet little faces, all scrubbed clean and dressed in fine clothes, on the podium tonight as this wonderful movie won the award for 'Best Movie.'
If you get a chance to... go...see it...you'll be glad you did. And when you leave the theater you'll have a new appreciation for all that we have.
A word of warning...this movie is not for children, especially under the age of 15 or so.

I got this video in an email the other day (I think it was Robin that sent it to me) so decided to share it since I don't have pictures to share. Have a good weekend. Linda

We crossed thru the border in a manner of minutes...with our Passports. There's a highway that by-passes downtown Vancouver and we took that to save time. So we didn't actually ever get into Vancouver proper. (I wanted to go to Stanley Park so bad~but as Bob pointed out it's winter it wouldn't be that fun right now.)
We actually arrived in Whistler at the Trendwest/Worldmark resort (Cascade Lodge) about 4:30pm. Check in time is not until 4pm so we timed it just right.
Below are some pictures that I took during our 3 days up there in that beautiful northern part of British Columbia.
This is the road we want to get to Whistler
I loved the name of this shop~ Knicknacks Paddywacks (give a dog a bone)
There's at least two Starbucks in the Village~maybe more
Our home away from home for 3 nights. See header picture for the view of the lodge.
We tried to use our debit or credit cards for purchases there because I quickly discovered that if you handed over U.S. money they gave you change in Canadian money. I cashed in some Canadian bills but brought home the coins and I gave each of my grand kids a "Toonie" (a two dollar coin). The exchange rate flucuated even in the few days we were there. It's really strange how that works.
