I am revising an old feature called ‘Burning Question’, a category under which I ask a variety of curious question, some urgent and some not so much. This question lies somewhere in the middle
Around my very modest circles I am known for my cookies. No, that is not a euphemism, it is true. I have nice cookies. Sumptuous and delectable. I also make a mean lasagne and I am known for my homemade soup.
During a recent conversation with my husband of 27 years, he said that there was only one meal he could remember that he didn’t like. Holy crap, did he say my meatloaf? But that is so basic in the U.S. Everyone can make meatloaf. Though I have had a few at pot luck dinners that were kind of dry and sad. But I digress.
So the gauntlet has been tossed, the challenge thrown down, and I do feel this urgency to make a really delicious meatloaf. One thing I know is that he does not like the old spread-ketchup-on-the-top type of meatloaf, or even braising in marinara like my mother used to make. He likes brown gravies and doesn’t like mushrooms.
If you have a recipe you’d like to share, or a good tip for making this a meal to remember, please leave it in the comments or mail it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in advance. Your two cents is requested-
