Meatloaf and (not) mashed potatoes
Let’s start with the fact that any cooking project I embark upon is neverÂ a solo venture. There is always at least one furry friend about. If not all of them! Loki plopped himself in the midst of the action. Inconveniently.
But I had a bit of time to be in there, so he wasn’t in the way for all of it.
The potato recipe is not a new one. When the light is right in my kitchen, though, I’m inspired to photograph everything. I probably would haveÂ snappedÂ a grilled cheese sandwich if I’d been so inclined to go that route.
Meatloaf really doesn’t lend itself to photos the way colorful potatoes do. Turkey, eggs, breadcrumbs, dijon mustard. This is my go-to meatloaf recipe. Always moist and flavorful. But I never use parsley. Spinach all the way, baby!
See? Not all that attractive. And I didn’t take after photos of either of these because I was scrambling a bit to get the table set and such, so the denouement of this postÂ is raw meatloaf.
Or maybe it’s the critters?
