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.

As a submissive, serving comes in many different guises.
(Serving something fresh and healthy shows Master that His dievca cares.)
- Cherry Tomatoes from dievca’s cousin’s garden
- Mushrooms – fresh
- Orange Bell Pepper
- Basil from dievca’s fire escape
- Parmesan cheese, grated by hand
- (you could add tuna or chicken for protein)
How do you serve your Sir or Madame to show you care?

dievca and a friend met for the Farmer’s Greenmarket on the Upper Westside and she already shared her outfit with you.
Here’s what happened after the market:
Walked past some bubbles and good wishes:
Brunch at White Gold Butchers – a whole-animal butcher shop & American eatery that’s owned by two female butchers. It is casual by day with table service at night and offers excellent meats. (Side note: Master and dievca had lunch here a week later, as a break from packing for His extended trip.)
dievca visited two OPEN HOUSEs for apartments up by where Master lives. One with a terrace and a fireplace… Yes, dievca knows that you Midwesterners are smirking, but buying a Co-Op in NYC is a whole different ballgame — my rent for one bedroom is probably more than your 3 bedroom house on 1/2 acre of land. The terraced/fireplace apartment was small but lovely. The the other apartment was….meh.
Then dievca’s friend wanted her to visit a business which was closing this week after 39 years of service. Liberty House will have closed by the time you read this – it was a lovely, yet sad experience. Some offerings:
What did dievca buy?
A bright yellow pottery tray and an absolutely stunning petite 18K with 22K bezel set opal slice ring.
