A Man's Loaf

I don't know how the conversation got started, but it did.

"My mom's had mozzarella cheese in it."

"We used to put ketchup on ours, but I'm not sure I'm for that any more."

"Ketchup is ok if it's on cold sandwiches the next day."

Not a catloaf

No, it's not a surrealist discussion of the placenta. It's meatloaf! That grand, hearty loaf that's perfect for when it gets all nonsense cold like it's been lately. I'm not sure who was the first to come up with the idea of loafing some meat, but man, is it good when it's done right. The problem, of course, is that it's also the kind of dish that's pretty easy to do wrong, leading to a bland, boring hunk of grey burger. I'm pretty sure mine isn't that.

Dog gets no loaf
No loaf for you, either

Liv and I had some meatloaf and mashed potatoes the other night, and since it'd been a while since I posted about what I was eating, I figured I'd take some pictures and share with you all.

Nothing out of the ordinary with this loaf, it's the same recipe I've been using for a while and have posted about here a couple of times.

Same with the mashed potatoes. Peeled, cubed russet potatoes boiled until soft and then mashed in a stand miser with salt, pepper, butter and sour cream. Simple, people.

Add peas.
