Groundhog Meatloaf

It’s Groundhog’s Day!

And Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, signaling 6 more weeks of winter.

If you believe in that sort of stuff.

Either way, it’s fun to get into the spirit of a seemingly meaningless holiday, so why not make a Groundhog Meatloaf in the shape of our favorite rodent?

See, if you didn’t like his prediction your mind can go all sorts of places while you’re eating this meal. And if you did like it; well, it’s a cute way to honor the little guy who brought you some hope and enlightenment.

Dreamy Meatloaf

I was craving meatloaf.

I know, it sounds weird, maybe kind of twisted. And it’s SOOOO suburbia.

But I wanted meatloaf.

It’s been really cool outside here and meatloaf is the perfect warm-you-up dinner.

And my husband couldn’t agree more. Heck, he benefits when I have beef cravings.


I think I had been dreaming about it — which is why I made this picture look kind of dreamy around the edges. Like the meatloaf is floating on a cloud.

Who wouldn’t want to see meatloaf floating on a cloud?

All right, I saw some hands. If you raised your hand, you’re dismissed. The rest of us will discuss how I make my meatloaf.

I use ground beef with onions already in it. It’s scrumptious. Then, add a cup of Italian breadcrumbs, oregano, salt and pepper to taste. Mix in an egg to to help it form the loaf.

Lay bacon strips over the top of the loaf and bake at 350 degrees F for just under an hour.

Oh, the smell is heavenly. The onions, the bacon, the oregano. You can smell it all. FOR AN HOUR.

It’s almost torture.

But then, just when you think you can’t stand it any longer — it’s ready to eat.

It was a dreamy evening scarfing down dreamy meatloaf with my dreamy husband. It was almost like an episode of Mad Men, only without all the yucky stuff on Mad Men.

Hooray for meatloaf!
