Not the singer Meatloaf. I never met him. Though I did like that one song.
I made meatloaf for dinner a few nights ago. I ate with the kids who had soccer that night, while Hubby ate with the rest of them.
The next day, Turken and I had this conversation:
Me: Would you like some leftover meatloaf for lunch?
Turken: No. I didn't like it.
Me: I'm guessing you didn't even try it.
Turken: Yes, I did. I liked the meat but not the loaf.
I couldn't breathe, let alone talk, with all of the uncontrollable laughter I was doing.
Once calm, I called Hubby.
He had some 'splainin' to do.
The rest of the story:
At dinner, Turken continued to pepper Hubby with the typical questions a preschooler asks when he is presented something new, or not new but not offered all that often. Things like, "Is that cheese on top?" and "What is that white stuff?"
Hubby became exasperated with the last "What is in meatloaf?" (mostly because he himself has no idea what is in a meatloaf) and answered, "There's meat and there's loaf. Just eat it."
Aaaaaaand we have our answer.
While on the subject of meatloaf, if you ever make it, I have a tip for you. While I love a good meatloaf, I rarely made it, seeing as how I didn't have an hour and a half to let it cook. This time, I had the brilliant idea of cooking it in a different pan.
Introducing, the mini-loaf pan. Delicious meatloaf takes only 35 minutes or so to cook.
For Considerer, the recipe.
2 pounds ground meat (This time I used a pound pork from our pigs and one pound of beef from my brother's cattle.)
bread crumbs- maybe a cup-I don't measure
1 pkg of dried onion/mushroom (I think) Lipton soup mix
ketchup - once again, I don't measure-maybe a cup
Use your hands to mix it all together and put it in the pan.
And that is why I don't have a food blog.
Have a lovely day!
