Don’t read this post Pigdog

That’s right, more sweet potatoes and other things Pigdog won’t eat were on the menu tonight. I figured I would get it out of my system as we will be getting together later this week and I know I will be cooking.

Tonight was meatloaf made with ground beef, pork sausage, oatmeal, onions, peppers, and mushrooms. At my wife’s request, I pureed the onions, peppers, and mushrooms in the food processor before mixing with the meat and oatmeal. Once that was done, I added a dash of soy, Worcestershire, and BBQ sauce to the mix, molded it into a loaf, and dumped it out of the bowl into a grill basket. Once formed, the top was brushed lightly with some more BBQ sauce.

As you can see from the picture, I was cooking in the dark. Since the time change it gets real dark pretty early around here, and on top of that it had been raining all day which only makes it worse.

The meatloaf fell apart when removing it from the grill basket; the bottom was a bit crusty from being directly over the coals and stuck to the basket. In spite of not holding its shape, the end result was very tasty and a big hit with the family. Big enough that I don’t know if there will be any leftover for sandwiches tomorrow…
