Things the husband will not touch: meatloaf
Things the husband cannot get enough of: meatballs
Naturally I had to point out meatballs are really nothing more than mini meatloaf. His response was a suspicious look followed by, “No.” (That was then followed by a winded explanation about what forms he likes his meat in. If you think that sentence sounds bad, you should have heard the whole conversation.)
I think it’s abundantly clear at this point that I’m dealing with a 31 year old toddler. But right now I kind of don’t care because I figured out a loophole to get meatloaf back in my life.
Nailed it. I’ve made this twice, and the husband has willingly eaten the leftovers both times (he’s not the only one). The first time, I served them in pitas with sweet potato fries on the side and ate the leftovers as a salad. The second time, I served them sans pita with smashed red potatoes and roasted broccoli on the side (yep – meatloaf style).
I sauteed the spinach in olive oil until it wilted.
