“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.
