After trying two different recipes with two different kinds of ground meat (beef and turkey) I am giving up on meatloaf. The recipe I tried with ground beef came away greasy and not so much appetizing. The ground turkey recipe came away bland and pastie looking. I am not even sure I WANT to like meatloaf, it just seems unnatural not to like something that is considered a "comfort food". I suppose I make up for it with my love of macaroni and cheese whiz. Has anyone out there made/had a meatloaf they weren't gagging over the grease or grabbing for the salt to season it? I may be interested in trying this again ... the majority reason - it's a cheap dish to make. Well, it's SUPPOSED to be - when you're making that and then a "replacement" meal as well; it turns out to be kind of costly.Pat's dog, Buddi Ann, passed away late last night. When I talked to her this morning she was a little hysterical, so I am heading over there this evening to play Scrabble with some icing (no cake, just the icing - it's her favorite part)to hopefully cheer her up a little.
