Geez. Now I feel the need to make meatloaf... it's going to get unbelievably cold here the end of the week- down to nearly zero at night and struggling to get past 25 during the day, if that. Guess I'll pull on the woolies and fire up the oven before that!

George, the mental picture you conjured up for me will stick with me for weeks. ICK.

Good grief... you're not really going to burn wood just for a meatloaf, are you? If so, I applaud your traditionalism. Personally I find the indoor oven to work best for a meal like this, just like I tend to prefer indoor plumbing for some things.

I never fire it up for just one thing... so I'll make bread too- and I really have my eye on that Tikka Masala thing Tim did...

I've been making quite a lot of bread indoors lately, trying to get new recipes down without the added variable of the oven to worry about. I have some of them ready to head outdoors now, so off we go!

Elizabeth,
Bread indoors? Warm, dry....TV's on. Sometimes that beats dealing with the elements, huh?

George, I've been meaning to ask, what kind of sausage is "Italian" where you live? Do you chop it up or is it raw and you add the filling?

I used to add some veal-sausage-meat-filler-stuff they sell here, but gave up because of all the additives. And on that subject... tomato ketchup? Ur yuck, no thanks.

In the States, ketchup is almost a necessity with meatloaf. Of course, I think that may be because there are so many awful recipes for meatloaf and the ketchup is an attempt to cover that up... the school meatloaf we had in elementary school was dyed pink. I swear. No amount of ketchup could make it taste good. It took me years to voluntarily eat ANY meatloaf at all.

I'm going to try Frances' recipe with the wine and cheese. It sounds yummy. Of course, we're looking at highs in the teens now by Friday, so I may have a retained heat challenge going! If I don't wimp out completely and make it all indoors... I just hate using my indoor oven if I don't have to. It takes FOREVER to heat. Always check your wattage when you buy an oven. I think my hair dryer is hotter.

My Mum NEVER makes meatloaf, I didn't even know what it was until I moved out from my parents' place. The reason was "you never know what they put in it"... Which doesn't really make any sense, because I know exactly what goes in my meatloaf.

But yeah, in a commercial setting it could contain virtually anything. That pink thing sounds really gross!

It was vile. I remember squashing it down as flat as I could in my tray-and carrying the tray past the teacher's table high enough (I thought) to keep her from seeing that I hadn't actually eaten it. I had a dragon for a teacher and she made us eat everything on our trays. At least until my mom found out and dealt with her. Go Mom!

Fantastic! What a cool thread. I can't believe I hadn't thought of meatloaf. I am constantly thinking of something new to bake after pizza night and meatloaf is just so obvious!

Frances, as usual, your recipe looks delicious. The ones we make at our house are more of the ketchup-topped variety. Looking forward to trying your recipe.

For Christmas, I recieved some oven baking dishes. Two small personal sized lasagna dishes, a rectangular ceramic baking dish, a ceramic coated cast iron "dutch oven" looking thing, and a partridge in a pear tree.

I have used the small lasagna dishes for baking vegies. I will use the baking dish for enchiladas or something, but as for the dutch oven thing, by far the coolest looking of them all, I have no idea what to bake in there.

Any ideas?

dusty

PS. Good to see you back George.
