Meatloaf Meltdown

Every now and then I like to switch up my recipes. Since my bf is diabetic I tend to explore meals that he can enjoy too.

So on Monday I decided to try out this new recipe for Bacon Meatloaf.

Here is how it turned out for me.

So I got all the ingredients that it asked for and prepped everything.

I combined all the ingredients and put it into a 12″ glass pan. After that I applied bacon on top to cover the whole thing. What the person never mentioned is the fact that it will be so fatty that the juices will make it hard to crisp the bacon.

So as I pulled it out of the oven I poured out all the juices and put it back in the oven for another 20 minutes. I wanted to make a side dish so I made Cauliflower mash potatoes (without the potato). By the time both were done we were already hungry so I apology for the cut meatloaf.

When I had my first bite it was disappointing. Since the ingredients weren’t measured to be balance correctly I had some bites that tasted good and other that tasted bland. My bf tried to be nice and say that it was okay. But I didn’t bite my tongue when I said I hated it. After that one piece I did not go back for left overs if anything I told my bf to throw the rest away. Made me sad that I wasted all this meat and food on a dish that was such a pain to eat.

As I served myself more mash cauliflower my bf said that I should probably stick to my original recipe and I couldn’t agree more. But the Cauliflower was beyond delicious. All you do is boil it until it is tender then throw it into the food processor with olive oil, butter, salt and pepper.

Oliver oil (1 tbs)

Butter (1 tbs)

salt and pepper (to your taste).

 

Hopefully the next recipe I make will be a success.

Happy hump day!

 

 

Monday Favorites

Today I wanted to share with you my favorites of this week.

Let me start off by saying that this weekend I was extremely excited. I finally got my first ipsy bag!!!

Another favorite I discovered was Whole Foods bacon. Yes, you read correctly BACON.

I know what you are thinking bacon…really? But since its Whole Foods the bacon is top tier. For example not only is that bacon more flavorful then your regular Farmer John’s but its nice thick, juicy, meaty bacon! And they were only $1 for two pieces of bacon. Since my boyfriend and I love our bacon we bought 6 on Saturday and 8 on Sunday. I got hooked quickly…

Finally my last favorite and probably the most shocking one. Recently I had to buy some new foundation because sadly I lost my Kat Von D foundation in Portland. With all that money spent I thought it would be best for my wallet and I to try drugstore foundation. The two words I do not like together. I did my research and thought I would give L’orel Paris Infalliable Pro- Matte 24 HR foundation a try. I amazingly love it and think that the color and coverage is actually better than my Kat Von D one. If you are as shiny as I am then you will love how much this controls it.
