Pre snow frenzy! Meatloaf

Today the weathermen are hyping (overhyping?) a blizzard due to start after 9 pm. I spent the morning at two grocery stores and the wine store preparing to be tucked in for a day or two.

First on the agenda was an apricot, almond pine nut crumble cake from Giada

My favorite meatloaf recipe was next:

2 bay leaves

2 teasp salt

½ teasp cayenne pepper

1 teasp black pepper,freshly ground

½ teasp cumin

½ teasp nutmeg, Seasoning Mix

4 tbsp unsalted butter

¾ cup diced onion

½ cup diced celery

½ cup diced bell pepper

¼ cup diced scallion

2 teasp minced garlic

1 teasp tabasco or cholula sauce

1 tbsp worcerstershire

½ cup evaporated milk or cream

½ cup ketchup

1½ lb ground chuck

½ lb ground pork

2 eggs

1 cup dry bread crumbs

Melt butter, saute vegetables thru garlic, worcestershire and seasoning mix. Saute 6 min. Stir in milk and ketchup. Cook 2 minutes. Cool to room temp. Preheat oven 350. Place beef and pork in bowl and add vegetables, eggs. Remove bay leaves. Add bread crumbs.

12 by 6″ pan

Or divide into 2 and freeze one.

Bake uncovered 25 min. Raise heat to 400 bake 35 minutes.
