So the Hubby & I LOVE the show Bob’s Burgers! Like really really really love… below case & point.
So there is this episode where Louise & Gene are given a huge hunk of raw meat to play with and they end up making a stop motion picture starring Meat Man! Really an award-winning piece.
But whenever we make meatloaf I have the strongest urge to make Meat Man instead of the traditional loaf. I know as an adult you aren’t supposed to play with your food but if we are being honest my mental maturity is that of a 7-year-old. I mean I competed against a 12-year-old in a tree climbing contest a few weeks ago – he won by default when I fell out of the tree straight to the ground. I digress.
So we didn’t make Meat Man but we did make meatloaf! We had a ton of farmers market veggies that were going bad and meatloaf is just like a frittata – throw anything in it and it will taste great!
We also have our first garden this year so we also made a wilted collard and kale… salad?… hash? I don’t know, I just needed to trim those two plants and threw them in a pan with butter because butter makes everything better!
