Meaningful? I Doubt It

Da Goddess @ 15:17

I truly intended to have something deep and thoughtful posted here today. I just fell way short. WAAAAAAY short. But I decided I’m okay with my failure to blog contenty-rich content. Instead, I’ve used my two cups of jasmine green tea buzz to do laundry and clean and make croutons and bread crumbs. In 80 degree weather.

The house smells yummy.

Last night, I made meatloaf. The house smelled yummy then, too.

As for Valentine’s Day, I got a hand delivered card and two kisses from one of my dearest friends. And a double handful of Valentine texts. Sent a lot of those myself. The texts, that is.

Oh yeah, after my doctor appointment the other day I had an interview. I think it went well. FINGERS CROSSED! And then I went to the mall to exchange some Christmas gifts. (Hey, this is quick for me, considering it took me until JUNE last year!) Best find: adorable blouse for $22 — it was basically a tank with a poncho. Totally not something I’d ever thought of trying on or getting in the past, however, it fit me well and looked super cute. I didn’t get it though because the BETTER find was a bra for $5 (yes! It was an awesome bra that fit me perfectly) and three pairs of panties for $2 each. Also, I managed to find a pair of earrings for $4. Plus, I used a bit of my credit to get my dad the right sized pan he needed. It was a bit more expensive than the one I returned but now he has the right one and he’s happy. Wish I could have done all that AND the blouse. Oh well. I’m hoping the Good Fairy drops it my path again at some point.

And now we return you to your regularly scheduled programming.


  1. Meatloaf? Mmmmmm. The best meatloaf I ever made I put honey mustard in it. Too bad no one else in the house will eat mustard…

  2. I considered mustard briefly but decided against it because I already used Worcestershire, garlic, onions, green peppers, and pepper, with a splash of ketchup. I didn’t want to overdo it. Plus, mustard isn’t my favorite. So I’m with your family on this one!

  5. I use mild Picante Sauce in my meatloaf. It has all the spices and veggies already cut up with tomato sauce. though.

  6. Okay, here’s what I do:

    1 lb ground beef (no less than 15% fat…you need that fat for flavoring but most of it bakes out)

    1 lb mild Italian sausage (if you have slightly more sausage than beef, that’s perfectly fine)

    2 eggs (large)

    2 slices bread (I use wheat, with crusts)

    1/2 cup milk (I use 1% or non-fat but any is fine)

    1/4 c finely chopped green pepper

    1/4 c finely chopped onion

    1/2 tsp ground pepper

    1/2 tsp garlic salt (or a bit more if you prefer)

    1 good squeeze of ketchup (approx 1 tbsp)

    2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

    2 small plastic baggies (for your hands because they’ll get really goopy and cold otherwise. And while I don’t mind the goopy part, I hate the frozen hand part)

    Mix everything well. It helps to soak the bread in the milk before adding it to the mixture because the milk softens the crust and the makes the bread wonderfully squishy.

    Once all ingredients are mixed thoroughly, glop the whole thing into a loaf pan and bake at 350 for about an hour. Before I put the pan in the oven, I sprinkle the top with more pepper and garlic salt. If I can get everything seasoned well enough during the making process, I don’t have to worry about seasoning once it’s on the plate.

    Let me know if you try the recipe and how you liked it!
