How wonderful could it really be???

    for meatloaf. This was the food I would request for my birthday dinner as a 5 year old. I think because my mother (who had 7 children at the time) had a pretty limited repertoire when it came to entrees. Meatloaf was her best dish. I loved how it was made in a bowl by squishing it all together with some oatmeal added in! I have recently become reacquainted with it! I feel a little silly even mentioning it, but as far as comfort food goes, I love it. Arguing about it? Nah. I think there is room in this world for more than one meatloaf recipe. Maybe this was the guys way of showing their mother-love to the world. Kind of sweet, really.

    Meatloaf - LOVE his music!!!
    meatloaf - I like mine -- ground turkey with Granny Smith Apples, onions, oatmeal, and rice as a base, but it never turns out the same way twice because I always play with the seasonings
    liver - Uh-uh. Nope.
    asparagus - yum! (But it has to be fresh from the farmers' market or garden. Not frozen. Certainly not canned.)
    grapefruit - Love it, but I have to time it so that I don't eat it within three hours before or after a thyroid med it conflicts with
    lutefisk - If it guaranteed that I could be a leggy, bikini-worthy, platinum-blonde Swede, I might try it. 'Til then, no thanks!

    My grandmother used to have the butcher grind up liver and she would add that to hamburger to make meatloaf. I didn't like meatloaf until I was grown and could make it myself sans liver. Now I love it. One of my comfort foods.

    I love liver, asparagus, meatloaf, and grapefruit. Some guy on a long-life (restricted calorie) diet on Oprah ate a bowl of 3 apples' worth of skins only with nuts every morning. I can't imagine that the rest of the apple has that many calories!
    Count your blessings!

    I have TONS of wisteria blooming in my yard. Can I cut some of it to bring inside and put in a vase or will it die too quickly? It's so pretty and I have so much, I'd like to have some inside. Dogwood too. But my azaleas are not blooming. Everyone else in the neighborhood has gorgeous azaleas. Mine, not a sign of a bud on them.

    Lutefisk=

    About the only thing I will eat coming out of Norway is Lefsa. My friend's family is 100% Norwegan and they make it homemade every year. When he first married his wife his family dared her to eat Lutefisk and she did. She said it was the most disgusting thing ever!

    Having no idea what Lutefisk was I looked it up on wikipedia. I only have one question. WHY!!?? Why would you take a perfectly good fish and ruin it?

    My point exactly and I'm almost full blooded Norwegian. Anything that will tarnish silver if left sitting in it too long is NOT going in my stomach.

    Lefse on the other hand is delicious. My mother made the most wonderful lefse.

    I was just going to ask what 'lutefisk' was, thinking that it sounded like some kind of fish. Luckily, I wouldn't have to try it to see if I liked it since I am super-allergic to white fish. It certainsly doesn't have a very attractive name.

    I love apple peels! If you peel it....though I don't know why you would...I'll be there to eat the peels! Isn't that where the fiber is?

    Now, lefse sounds interesting!
