In yesterdays hamburger post, I mentioned the likelihood of a future meat loaf and sure enough, Bev whipped one up two nights later. I didn’t get any shots of our dinner, but I was amazed at how little grease was in the bottom of the casserole dish – she usually cooks it on a rack to drain the grease from regular hamburger. While I like hot out-of-the-oven meatloaf, what I really like is leftover meatloaf sandwiches. I believe the enjoyers of this meal can be put into two categories – warm and cold. Bev’s a warm, but I prefer mine cold, most likely because there were no micowaves when I grew up and so I got them cold.
We’d finally gone to the store and bought bread and I chose ciabatta (Bev still can’t eat starch), but I did so without remembering the impending meatloaf sandwich. The warm meat would have never stood up to the bread, but in spite of the lesson I recently learned about soft bread for soft filling, this was all I had and I hoped the cold meat could handle the chewy bread.
I sliced the bread to fit the size of the meat and built the sandwich as follows – bread, mayo, meatloaf, pepper jack cheese, a little onion, lettuce, mayo, bread.
I’m a big fan of the Weather Channel (watch every morning) and while watching it last Friday they had many shots of the Dallas area roads littered with wrecked and abandoned cars – similar situation in San Antonio. My daughter, who lives just north of S.A. sent us some pictures of their snow that didn’t quite cover the grass, yet they closed schools and parts of the interstate due to the known ice conditions. One official they interviewed in the Dallas area said they were having 400 wrecks per hour. I don’t understand why drivers who know the roads are icy, know they have not been treated, know they have very limited experience with these conditions take to the roads anyway. Wait, I know several male Texans (eg - son-in-law), maybe I do understand. :-)
Have a great day and thanks for visiting.
