“Feeling good about ourselves is essential in our being able to love others.” Fred Rogers
Lunch time on a recent weekend. My goal was to feed husband, George, and use up some of what we have in our small chest freezer. I found a sirloin steak. My husband doesn’t care for most steaks because of the status of his teeth. They’re not good for chewing substantial foods. I can make a steak substantial!
A friend, Margie, suggested I grind the beef and make patties. I didn’t have a grinder but thought my food processor would work well. I also opted for two small meatloaf pans.
My Ninja chopper did a great job. I added eggs and onion and a bit of oatmeal. Mom always preferred oatmeal over bread crumbs. Seemed to work.
Baked the loaves for about 30 minutes at 375 degrees. Voila!
I like meatloaf with ketchup. George likes his meatloaf plain. I did confess to the deviation from the usual ground meats used in meatloaf. George said it didn’t taste like regular meatloaf. “But it’s really good!” he said. I took that as an “I love you.”
Thanks to my friend, Margie, for the suggestion. Friends are priceless.
