Who Needs to WIn an Oscar? Look what I won!


I love a knitted headband. I won this gorgeous green headband from Allison at Perknitous blog fame. I had a black coat for winter....but I just so happened to find a 300 dollar coat for 99 dollars in .....green. So I bought the coat to match my headband win....

I learned fireman's Meatloaf tricks tonight. He is the best meatloaf maker we know. Everyone wants his recipe. Seriously. I don't think he would have shared the secrets unless he had the little Beatle bug kitty sleeping on his lap. He talked me through it. It is all about the kneading of the beef and the breadcrumb ratio......
I honestly thought we were done long before he said we were.....keep kneading it, keep kneading it. Really? My hands and fingers were oh so freezing too......

Maybe if I wore my new winter coat and headband while I made the meatloaf......I wouldn't have been so cold....

That is a REALLY beautiful headband. I like the sounds of a green coat too.

I am not a fan of meatloaf though. I think the Knight is craving pizza, but I have two teleconferences, so he's going to get take-out pizza.

Congratulations!

I love meatloaf but never make it for myself.

I love it--buying a coat to match a headband. That's the best excuse I've ever heard!!

I love meatloaf and have never been able to make the good stuff. It's always better when someone else makes it. I will try the kneading tip and see if it turns out better, but I'm thinking I just make lousy meatloaf!

Cute headband.

Mmmmmmmm...meatloaf. That is the ultimate in winter time comfort food.

Ah! That does make me feel famous :) I am so glad it will go with your new coat.
