  1. I'll be away for a few days, as my Dad is in the hospital. He has a few issues going on, all treatable, but on the other hand he's ninety-six and was not exactly robust going into this. Any prayers you'd like to give would be appreciated.

  2. I made Kenji Lopez-Alt's 64-ingredient (approx.) meatloaf recipe.

    I made some small changes (no gelatin, half-n-half instead of buttermilk, miso instead of marmite, anchovy paste instead of anchovies, and multigrain bread instead of white bread).

    It was easily the best meatloaf I have ever made. Probably in the top three I have ever eaten. Totally worth the extra effort (and not that much extra effort). Tender, but holds together well. Huge, meaty, complex flavor. Nobody eating it would know it has "weird" ingredients.

      1. Yea, that looks pretty awesome.

        I've always been fascinated by the concept of plank grilling, but my Minnesota frugality is put off by the single-use nature of planks.

        1. I've done it twice and still have the same plank since it's not direct heat, if that helps convince you.

          I also plan to try j. Kenji's recipe as well because that does look delicious.
