Mmmm Meatloaf

I have been craving meatloaf lately. No, don’t even go there, I just happen to be a big fan of beef baked in a loaf pan. I love the texture, the smell, how it is baked in a bath of gristle, and owww the next day when the gristle has congealed you slice it up and put it between bread slathered with mayo. Are your taste buds watering yet, I know mine are.

My Dad makes the best meatloaf, it is absolutely delicious. I often ask him for the recipe but he insists he doesn't have one, he just uses a little of that, a pinch of this, and slides it in the oven until it 'looks' done. Why are the best family recipes, not recipes at all? How much exactly is a 'little', a 'pinch', and about how long does it take to 'look' done??

I also love the singer Meatloaf. I don't have a whole play list dedicated to him on my iTunes or anything, but I do gasp and crank it up when I hear him on the radio. Some of my favorite Loaf tunes are listed below in no particular order:

Two Out of Three Ain't Bad (my favorite)

I Would do Anything for Love
Paradise by the Dashboard Light
It's All Coming Back to Me Now
Took the Words Right Out of my Mouth
I gotta ask:
How do you prefer your Meatloaf?
