what's for dinner tonight?
it all went down hill from there.
rapidly down hill.
in my 12 years as dan's wife
& 18 years as savannah's mom
( & the chronological order goes on)
i've never once made a meatloaf.
so it came as a big surprise, to those two in particular,
that i would "assemble" a meatloaf.
i actually used the verb "assemble".
i shoulda said "create" or "whip up"
but i chose assemble.
i don't really know why i chose to say assemble
because "i have never"
(please use your best southern accent)
said that before.
but assemble combined with meatloaf laid the groundwork for many a
harrassment smile that day.
i was also going to make red potatoes
& serve roasted asparagus
and triple chocolate chunk brownies for a treat for those who ate their meatloaf
he is a meat & potatoes guy who loves chocolate
recently i stumbled across
what looked like a fabulous, healthy no less, meatloaf recipe
which i will not share the location
for fear that the cute blogger that posted it will think i'm slamming her.
you're on your own for that one.
i enjoyed the humorous
& chose to laugh about it because. whatever.
everyone eats meatloaf right?
apparently "beatloaf" as my yankee hubby refers to it
is not eaten by everyone
& is clearly the joke of all food jokes says 18 year old who is heading off to eat the mealplan at UGA.
something like ....oh, we're having meatloaf for dinner...heavy sigh.
at some point during the day
brinkley got out
the guilty party has yet to come forward
my sweet saver -of -all -lost -kittens & puppies -neighbor rings the door bell around 5pm
while i was slaving in the hot kitchen over said meatloaf assembly.
i open the door to find her with brinkley on a "spare" leash.
he was found out beside the busy road behind our house!!!!
oh my word!
i could have cried right then and there.
i chose to snap at my family & say things like
are you kidding me? no one noticed they let brinkley out?
and the ever famous , seriously? instead.
at some point
dan decided to text savannah the following..
" i think brinkley left on his own free will because he heard we were having meatloaf"
oh the level of humor
the meatloaf was fabulous
& everyone cleaned their plates
except for madi who does not ever never ever eat pork
or "pig" as she calls it
& the famous meatloaf included sausage.
& i heard more than once
something along the lines of
"i can't believe you're not photographing this"
"what? no meatloaf assembly collage?"
"shall i hold a plate for you? for the blog post of course?"
next time i am totally sneaking some flax seed in the meatloaf assembly line.
i'll show them!
so in lieu of meatloaf pics
here's some more cherished beach moments...
i love the beach
they loved the meatloaf
dan never ever makes fun of me or my cooking.
but i did ask for it. serving my first meatloaf & all.
he's really a perfect gentlemen. just want to make sure ya'll know that
& don't think he's a meany
