Leather and lace.

Tonight, I'm showing my love by making My Guy meatloaf.

Yes.

He's been talking about it for weeks. I am dating A Dude. A Carnivorous Dude.

Have I mentioned lately that I only eat meat about once a week? And now I'm about to submerge my hands into raw ground turkey (sorry, can't do the beef) to form it into a loaf-type configuration?

Still, it seems like an easy way out compared to all of the "Buy their love!" retail messages about Valentine's Day. Truth be told, I don't want flowers or chocolates or jewelry today. It would seem like something done out of obligation.

But meatloaf? That's love, baby. Real love. And yes, I'm throwing in garlic mashed potatoes. Because that's how I roll.

Since I can't make all of you meatloaf, I will instead share this inspired video. My two boyfriends - Will Ferrell and Dave Grohl - together at last!



Happy Valentine's Day.

Happy Valentine's Day! I like a meatloaf my mom made when we were little. It has ham, cheese and spinach rolled up inside it. Yum. And I'm with you about flowers and candy when I'd rather have an expression of actual love.

It must be love, Cha Cha! I'm not into the "sticking your hands into raw meat" thing, either (and even less the "cutting (or worse: ripping) the heads off dead fish" thing which everyone here in France seems to do with such gusto) so I'm really impressed!
Hope you had a scrummy meal!

Mmmm, I love me some meat. And not like that.

I'm with you on the V-day obligations...don't bother, I say. Gimme the meatloaf anytime!!

TOO funny! What a brilliant video clip!
Must be in the air--I made meatloaf this weekend too.

I too only eat meat once or twice a week - usually chicken. Yet my very meal since I was a kid is meatloaf, mac & cheese and pinto beans. Someone in my family makes it every year for my birthday.

Thanks for the video - I LOVE that clip. Happy Valentines Day, indeed!

Call me crazy but I had my guy's knives professionally sharpened for V-Day. I figured either I would be the beneficiary of much good gourmet cooking goodness or totally make that section of NPR news where they read the ironic twist of fate stories.
