Meatloaf Dinner

It was a rainy, snowy April day yesterday. Perfect for some comfort food. This was last night's dinner, and there will be easy leftovers tonight.


Two pounds of good-quality ground beef; half an onion, finely diced; one egg; some homemade bread, moistened with some milk; an egg; a squeeze of ketchup; salt and pepper.

Mixed, formed and baked until done.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Six small/medium russet potatoes, peeled, cubed and simmered in nicely salted water with two cloves of garlic until done, then put through a ricer. Then, some butter was added and a couple glugs of buttermilk and a bit of salt.


Sauteed in a bit of olive oil and then finished with a bit of salt and a bit of meyer lemon olive oil.
