Regarding Meatloaf…Husband approved post

I always ask my dear husband if I can post something about him, and to this he said yes.

His son is visiting us from Pennsylvania, and the two of them were going to go bowling this afternoon, while I stayed behind to make them a manly man sized meal fit for a man, and catch up on laundry. waste afternoon blogging.

I had been slaving over a hot stove when husband came in the room after just showering.

“Someone looks and smells nice, not like some other people I know.” She said

“Like who?” He replied.

“Your wife.” She answered.

“You’re Skankylicious.” He said. “You could take a shower too, you know.”

“Not yet.  Pretty soon I’ll be up to my knee caps in meatloaf.”

“Knee caps?!”  He said

“Oh, yeah, that’s the secret to my meatloaf.  I mix it up with my feet.”


“Shall I just say I will be up to my elbows in meatloaf then?”

“Please do,”

So what’s the moral of this story?  Perception is everything?  What you don’t know won’t hurt you?  Or the old worn out “Some things are better left unsaid.”?

So, we do the grapes first, then the meatloaf?

  1. I shall never think of meat loaf the same way again! Oh, I like your theme! Simple but effective, cleanly laid out, very easy on the eye and not cluttered. I feel mine is a little too cluttered. Yours looks quite minimalistic but in a good way. I think I’ll be an art critic. Wrote this on my own page, just dawned on me its supposed to be on your. Still getting the hang of this 🙂

    • No problem, thanks for the input. I got me a fancy new meatloaf pan today at The Walgreens too. It was on sale! No more using mom’s old roaster and having a football shaped meatloaf. It came with a bunch of recipes, confirming my husband’s suspicion that I’m the only person in the world who uses sausage as well as ground beef. But I’m the third generation in my family to do it that way, so that’s what I’ll keep doing. I’m new at this too, but learning more every day.

    • I just checked out your blog to see the “too cluttered”.. I know, nothing better to do with my life than check up on random peoples comments…
      I don’t think it is too cluttered at all. I think it is the color. The blue in the background seems to overload the eyes when the eyes should be focusing on your writing. Does that even make sense? I’m no pro, believe me, but that is what first popped into my head when your blog loaded. There isn’t a whole lot going on, not too many widgets, not too many pictures… So being cluttered doesn’t really fit the bill. Yours is also nice and simple. I would try toning down the background color to something very soft, black or grey font, and engaging supreme color into your post titles? The title picture is amazing and really caught me off guard, in a good way. Imagine how the blue eye would pop against a grey background or even white? That one mega splash of blue! WOW! Then maybe try the same color blue in your titles to tie it all together?

      • Ha ha, you had me all confused, my blog isn’t blue–then I realized you were talking about Somewhere Amazings– I really like his page. I think it’s very eye catching.

  2. Haha too funny. I get asked for my potato meat loaf all the time. It takes 3 hours. I should say I grape stomp it so people will ask less.

    I wrote a blog post about my elbows being sexy the Tuesday, so I shouldn’t say elbows.

  3. Sometimes I feel guilty shoving my hands in the meatloaf goo, but I’ll take your advice and try my feet next time. … You are right, some things are best left unsaid. A few m&ms on my desk. Gave one to the dog; he spit it out. Picked m&m up off of floor and set it back on my desk apart from non-dog-licked ones. Hubby came by, looked at m&ms, and I smiled. He took “the one.” The new smile on my face when he swallowed was all he needed to know. I’m pretty sure there were a few affectionate curse words as he walked away shaking his head.

      • With a dog in the house, I’m a fanatic about washing hands before cooking. But then I think I’m adding soap flavor to the meat, or did I double-check under my nails to be sure they are squeaky clean; otherwise, I’m cleaning them out in the meatloaf. I’ll try the half mix of sausage next time. Anything else creative you do with meatloaf? Do you use torn bread or bread cubes or crumbs? Where’s your meatloaf recipe and pictures?!!

  4. I love meatloaf. I am guilty of pulverizing tons of veggies to add to mine. I use sausage and beef for my lasagna but never thought to do the same for meatloaf…. DUH!!! How amazing would that be?!

    • I don’t add veggies to mine anymore because there aren’t any kids around to fool. Just my husband and I and we can eat unhidden veggies. Except for brussel sprouts. Blecch. He loves them, but you couldn’t pay me to eat those. I can’t wait to try your recipe for hash. OMG that looks so good.

Well.....let's hear it!
