I made meatloaf yesterday. We grabbed some from the hot deli counter at the grocery store a few weeks ago and my husband has been asking why I don’t make one myself ever since. For some reason, I thought he hadn’t liked the last meatloaf I made so I never bothered to make one again. He is a picky eater after all. Yet I can’t recall when I made this rejected meatloaf so I might have imagined the whole incident.

The meal was a success. I found an easy recipe online and didn’t over or undercook the thing. Peter was turning up his nose as I made the topping by combining a bit of brown sugar with the catsup. But he ate it. And now there are leftovers, so I hope he is prepared to eat it again tonight.

My confidence has increased enough that I might attempt stuffed cabbage in the future.

Have you had a recent kitchen success?

  1. I’ve never had meatloaf before! You know, when I was married my ex used to cook better than I could. I could cook..but it wasn’t that “great”. And he would comment on that. So, after some time, I gave up him to do it..haha! I’m glad you are gaining your confidence back 🙂


  2. I love meatloaf! One of my specialties and I now have it consistent from one loaf to the next. My daughter likes when I make it too. I recently tried several recipes with pumpkin squash (the kind you use to make pumpkin pie) and some were good, some were throw away. The Ginger Pumpkin Pancakes were a huge hit though. I used fresh pureed ginger instead of powder, which gave them a sweet and slightly spicy taste.


  3. Lately I’ve realised I’m really in a rut in the kitchen, cooking the same things all the time. I need to branch out. Well done on trying something different and having it turn out a success!

  4. I’ve never tried making my own meatloaf, I will have to give it a try, it is not something that crops up regularly in the UK. I enjoy doing a lot of Chinese cookery with pastes and spices. I’m definitely finding that practice makes perfect and I’m doing things that I used to have trouble with but they are getting easier and I’m making them to a level that pleases me and my tastebuds 🙂 I need to bake more cakes, that to me is the fun stuff that always goes down well with both me and everyone else.


What do you have to say about that?
