food that provides consolation or a feeling of well-being, typically any with a high sugar or other carbohydrate content and associated with childhood or home cooking.
Sexy, it is not, but sometimes your Sir/Madame (and yourself) need to be served and warmed via childhood memories. Traveling the World or dealing with Family/ Work stress: Midwestern Meat and Potatoes comes as comfort. (That’s what dievca’s Brother says~)
dievca’s Basic MeatLoaf:
2/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs or 2 cups soft bread crumbs (4 pieces)
1/2 finely chopped medium onion
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried leaf sage, basil, or oregano, crushed
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 pounds lean ground beef, lamb, or pork
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup water
In a large bowl combine everything. dievca uses her hands to mix. Lightly pat mixture into a dome shape or use a 9×5 loaf pan.
Bake in a 350 degree F (175C) oven for 1.5 hours or until internal temperature registers 160 degrees F (70C).Add ketchup to the top as a glaze in the last 10 minutes.
Roasted Fingerling Potatoes:
In a casserole dish, mix together potatoes, olive oil, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes at 350F/175C or until the potatoes are tender.
If you want crispier skins, roast at 425F/ 220C.
Add a small salad to even out the heart attack factors and be cozy while eating.
Lose the stress. XO
Voila! Serving in a different way.
