My most viewed recipe of all-- Meatloaf!

Hey friends!

Today, Craig and I are headed south to Paso Robles. That's where my horse lives. For all of her life, she's lived close to me. Last June, I moved her two hours south to a friend's ranch, where the cost of boarding her is less expensive. She has earned her retirement, where she lives out her life in a huge stall. She's well looked after, and check out her view:

Not too shabby, is it? I forget this donkey's name, but he's a little cutie.

From there, we'll drive to Cambria where I plan to enjoy lunch at a cute Tea Room I discovered the last time we were there. It's not too girlie, so much husband is happy to eat lunch there. We'll be gone all day long, but the weather has been perfect.

... and we'll stroll into antique stores and cute stores and gardens.

I'm taking a break from blogging (and cooking), but I wanted to share with the my #1 most viewed recipe I've posted.

Meatloaf! What's up with that? I know that meatloaf is a love-hate relationship. My boys love it, and I guess so does a large percentage of America?

This really is an excellent recipe, from Cook's Illustrated-- and I've always had good luck with their recipes. This tastes so good because I use veal, beef and pork, and a Cook's Illustrated technique that I think is very clever. To learn how I make it, click here:

I'll be back on Thursday-- planning our next adventure.

Only two more days to enter my free giveaway-- if you love homemade jam. Click here for more info:

It's a man-pleaser for sure. Bob even wrote a song about meatloaf once, inspired by my serving it up again for lunch the next day, and then slices in gravy for a dinner encore. "24 Hours of Meatloaf".

Enjoy your nice that your horse has a good home.
The donkey photo looks like a painting!

Mmmm...your meatloaf looks and sounds yummy. My hubby makes a killer meatloaf, but he is one of those "throw stuff in until it looks good cooks." I think I will ask him to make it soon!

Sounds like a fantastic day out. I bet your horse is as pleased to see you as you are her :0)

Have a lovely break and your meatloaf looks and sounds amazing!

I make a very good meatloaf too, but I've always wanted to try your method of baking it on a rack and foil.

Have a good week! See you in a few days!
