yesterday...

I allowed myself to wallow yesterday. Mostly because I was tired. So tired. I had three hours of fitful sleep, woke up despondent and slightly hungover, and then had to drag my butt to the library. Too tired to even conjure up a smile, I decided to glower and growl at everyone instead. I do my best to remain impartial.

On the way home from work, I stopped at the grocery store to get some things for dinner. Mike said he wanted comfort food, which is usually man-code for meatloaf. I stood at the meat case, staring at the ground meat. Usually I'll pick up a combination of beef and pork and skip the veal - a lingering tenderheartedness left over from my liberal days, I suppose - but I chose the convenient three pack instead. I was running on empty and didn't care. Besides, it's already dead, tastes delicious and I've heard a rumor that every time you eat a tortured baby cow a hippie cries.

The leftovers were good too.

I don't care who you are, that's funny right there...

"convenient three (meat) pack" ... wow ... they haven't been invented down under yet (well at least not on the west coast) ... what a great idea.

Does you meatloaf also involve two strips of bacon draped over the top?

Because BACON makes everything better

I've posted this a couple times, and probably will some more. It's the BBC saying, effectively, "... it's dead, tastes delicious, and eating it makes hippies cry. Democrats s**k."

OK, maybe they didn't actually say that. I probably *was* drinking ....

Oh man... homemade meatloaf???? sigh... I REALLY miss that! (mine just does NOT taste right for some reason)

Dinner tonight was a lousy tuna fish sandwich...

TBolt - I didn't have any bacon in the house. Bibbidy bobbity bacon! That video is hilarious

Ted - Lamb is another thing I always feel bad about eating. Baaaa! Maybe I'll try it again.

Old NFO - is there non-homemade meatloaf?

Pester me next time you catch me in #gunblogger_conspiracy. I've got a great recipe for a meatloaf that includes andoulie and other goodies and a mustard glaze.

In my neck-of-the-woods, non-homemade meatloaf is usually referred to as the "blue-plate special"

speaking of hippies...

that bacon video was magically delicious.

You simply cannot make Wienerschnitzel without veal. And once you get it you have to pound it thin, then bread-it, and flash-fry in the hot oil. It's delicious.

At our state fair the pork producers stand is directly in front of the open-air sheep barn, so you can watch the sheep while eating your lamburger. It's been that way for decades and no one even seems to think it's odd.
