I made meatloaf and mashed potatoes for dinner last night. How 1950s am I? Well, you know, except for the fact I'm a guy and I was doing the cooking. And that I'm blogging about it. But still!

Turns out meatloaf can be super tasty. Got a nice fresh-ground beef-pork-veal blend from the butcher. Cooked it on a bed of bacon and doused it frequently with a sweet glaze. Turned out quite nice. I'm kind of regretting halving the recipe, because we only have enough leftovers for one more meal. Tonight, I'm going to cook up some Brussels sprouts to have with them. Never cooked those before either.

On a side note, I needed some milk for the meatload, and looking at it realized I hadn't had a drink of the stuff for something like two or three years. Just soy milk. (My 1950sness is fading by the second!) So, I got curious and drank some. Wow, milk is crazy good. You can actually taste the fat in it!

No gravy!

One of my favorite breakfasts is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with bacon on toast. Obviously it would go great with some nice cold milk.

That's too bad. It was sounding delicious until the no gravy. What's the point of mashed potatoes with no gravy?

PBJ and bacon, how could that possibly be good? I am of the opinion that meat and fruit should never meet. Now toast and GRAVY and bacon, that might be alright.
