Cold Hands, Warm Food

We did get snow.  Yay!!!!!


I might be too excited about 1-2″ of snow, but I’m still a Texas girl at heart, and 1-2″ of snow is miraculous in some parts of Texas.  Yes, miraculous.

In other news, we had a long-term favorite dish last night.  By long-term, I mean two and a half years, or the entire period of our marriage thus far.  It’s long-term if it’s most of the time you’ve been cooking.  So what is this favorite?  Giada’s Turkey Meatloaf with Feta and Sun-dried Tomatoes.  Om nom nom.


I’m mostly a fan of meatloaf if it’s special.  I like it with lots of bacon wrapped around it (Pioneer Woman style) and if it’s turkey with delicious, flavorful stuff bursting out of the meatloaf.  This stuff is really good.  The sweetness of the sun-dried tomatoes and the tartness of the cheese and olives is just great.  (Oh, I add about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of kalamata olives to Giada’s recipe and leave it otherwise the same.  I think it’s a really good addition.)

The loaf of meat didn’t stay in loaf slices all that well yesterday, but it was still delicious.  One of the best things about this recipe is that it’s really simple.  And I always like it when you bake your main course for a while.  It gives you a chance to clean the dishes and the kitchen while you’re cooking.  So in the end, you have a warm, flavorful dinner, a clean kitchen, and a happy stomach.  It’s a win.
