Wink I don't like meatloaf

Well, I never used to.
Then last year I attended a Rotary meeting where the main course was meatloaf.
Naturally, as a visitor I was hardly going to be so rude as to say I don't like it, so I resigned myself to eating it.
Much to my surprise it was very good.
When asked if I was enjoying the meal I came clean and explained we hadn't eaten meatloaf at my house since the day I 'fessed up to the wife why I was only lukewarm in my support when she was cutting crook at the kids for not eating the stuff.
I had to explain why I'd been eating it for years, if I didn't like it.
Any married man will understand, I'm sure, that when the missus has gone to the trouble of cooking it you eat it, whatever it is.
The president of the local Rotary was kinda chuffed, because his wife had made it. At the end of the evening he presented me with her recipe.
Naturally the recipe got a chilly reception when I took it home, because now its not meatloaf I don't like, it's the wife's meatloaf I don't like.
I assumed the wife had thrown it out, but the other day not only did she say she still had it, but she had thawed enough to actually make it, and it's still really nice.
So today I was instructed to make it while she was at work, so naturally it was a WFO oven job.
Made the meatloaf, and the best bread I've managed so far.

Meatloaf was one of my grandfathers favorites, and always with mashed potatoes. I'm not a huge fan of it myself, but I've had some that I really loved....grandmas being of of them. If course, being 100% Neapolitan she always put some kind of Italian spin on it. And fortunately for me, the good woman makes a great meatloaf too. I think I would have made a meatloaf sand which with the bread...the crumb looks nice.

You're a brave soul to let on that you're not a fan of the missus 'loaf!

It took 9 years of marriage to work up the courage to tell her.
I've made the sandwiches for tomorrow's lunch.

Unhappy Re: I don't like meatloaf

G'day mick
You have not had a good day.
I'm hoping for your own good this comes out for the best!
You can get into points of order and best practice on this forum and survive to see another day. But on the home front?
Now let me get this right. You have brought another women's recipe into the house of something you have rejected from in the past! And expecting cooking it in the WFO is going to make it .... Well ... Work
Sorry buddy I think that a lose / lose situation .
I've been married for 30 years ..... Sometimes you just have to lose

Regards dave

Worry not mate. It's all good. We've been married for over 20 years, so she had plenty of time to get over the original disappointment. And it's not like I banned the stuff, I've never said the missus can't have it, just don't expect me to eat it. So it hasn't been a major bone of contention between us.
It did take nearly a year for her to try out this recipe, but when she did it turned out pretty good, so she was just happy it was back on the menu. Today was my turn to cook while she worked all day, and I like using the wood oven.

I sometimes wonder, am I the only guy who has noticed a drop in his gas bill? Long slow roasts in the oven in the kitchen, replaced by free heat from scavenged wood in the WFO.

I have a gas stove in the house and my gas consumption is now a third of what it was. The long slow roasts make the difference.

My wife brought some great family recipes to the union but there was no meatloaf recipe, I still use them. Difference now is that I share them with my cat. No arguments.

Default Re: I don't like meatloaf

I HATE meatloaf as well, and recently went to my husband's grandparents to eat it. I ate mine 3 different ways:

1.) Covered a bite in mashed potatoes
2.) Took a big bite of bread with a little meatloaf
3.) Mixed a bite with any veggie on my plate and swallowed it down with my drink.

I am not ready to go with this. Not really my thing. Yukkk
