Bad, Bad Meat Loaf

This is a public service announcement.

One day, a couple of months ago, I was in a hurry to make supper and I hadn't thawed out any meat. I don't really like thawing out meat in the microwave because it always seems to get partially cooked somewhere and it takes so long and it annoys me.

So. . . what to do. . . what to do?

I decided, in a frantic moment, to disengage my brain and unwrap a package of ground beef and just throw it in the oven as is and see what happens.

It looked like this when it was finally done overdone.

Quite a fancy presentation, eh?

The taste was pretty much the same. Don't get me wrong; it was edible and one kid even insisted he liked it. With ketchup.

But, c'mon. Look at it. It was blah at best.

Don't do this, even when desperate. Scrape at it in a skillet and make some hamburger helper-esque meal instead.


  1. Hmmmm.... looks like.... beef.

    I'd eat it. I haven't had meatloaf in a while....

  2. I'm really hoping that picture didn't inspire you to make meatloaf! But, I guess it is simple :)
