Meatloaf  
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, and there's a pretty good reason for that. A while back my wife and I ordered pizza from a place and I asked for hamburger on mine and they thought I said "ham", so I ended up with Canadian bacon. That used to be my favorite pizza topping, but I nearly got sick eating it that time.

Might just be a mental thing, or my body getting used to not eating the stuff, or maybe it's because I was just never a huge fan of pork. Or at least, not of ham.

I often have trouble digesting foods I haven't eaten for a while. I'm convinced that you need certain bacteria to digest certain things and they die off when you don't eat that thing often enough.
