I can neither sew, nor cook, nor read or write my name

This was one of the most productive Sundays I've had in a long time. It helped that I had multitasked by folding laundry and tidying the living room during the football game on Saturday, so that meant I could spend Sunday doing whatever I wanted. I decided that I wanted to make meatloaf, and ended up making meatloaf, mashed potatoes and muffins. If someone would come and do the dishes for me, that would be great. I may be feeling productive, but I'm not that productive.

The meatloaf was an interesting adventure. I found the recipe online but there was an excessive amount of improvisation and mistake-making involved so I can't tell you what that recipe would taste like. First, I decided that I was going to make a half-batch rather than what was written in the recipe. Unfortunately I forgot two ingredients in that I was doing this. So I used 1 lb of ground beef instead of 2 and 1 egg instead of 2, but then I added the full amounts of bread crumbs (I did half bread crumbs, half leftover french fried onions), ketchup (I don't even like ketchup!), horseradish and Worcestershire sauce. Then I went back to read the recipe again and caught on that I had messed things up. So I went back to half-doses for the pepper, mustard powder, garlic and parsley. Once I got it all mixed together, it seemed too wet, so I just threw in a bunch of bread crumbs. I don't know how much. I just dumped some in until it seemed like a good consistency.

Then it was time to cook the darn thing and I suddenly decided that I wanted to make meatloaf muffins instead of a meatloaf, so I had to guess at an appropriate cooking temperature and time.

Well, they tasted good and I'm not dead so far, so yippee! Srah can cook!

I really feel like I should know this quote, so you can go ahead and just give me the point. I'm sure I'll think of it later.

Also, meatloaf muffins sound good. I wonder how they would taste with Venezualan Beaver Cheese?

Your cooking process sounds a lot like mine...messy and fun. Glad to hear you're still alive :)

Meatloaf muffins, regular muffins, and wine? Sounds like a night!
