For some strange reason I was in the mood for meatloaf last week. It’s strange because I’ve only eaten it a handful of times in my life, and I’d only made it once before. Still, that’s what I wanted so that’s what I made. I decided on this recipe from (where else?) epicurious.com, because I had some bacon to get rid of (plus I love bacon). The recipe had gotten very mixed reviews, but the results were great – even though I put twice as much ketchup in the mixture, as the recipe called for (I always have to make a mistake in every recipe I follow). Mike, in particular, loved it. I’m recording it here so that I can find the recipe when I want to make it again.
Also last week I made Lemon Rubbed Chicken Legs with Garlic & Rosemary, also from an epicurious.com recipe. It was also delicious and very quick and easy to make. The sauce had a very intense lemony flavor which Mike and I loved. The only down part is that the sauce was pretty fatty – with all the oil and rendered chicken fat – but the chicken is very tasty even without it. Mika wasn’t fond of the rosemary, but Camila really dug it. It’s the sort of dish that I’d like to make again.
