Meatloaf Sandwiches

We had meatloaf last night. Meatloaf is one of those things that I did not make until I was married because I AM KOREAN and my mother never made it for me. The only meatloaf I had ever tasted was the school lunch meatloaf and it smelled like tuna. So I use Alton Brown's recipe and tweak.

This is what I had for dinner:

Common Sense

I like how manufacturers have to OVER LABEL things so they do not get sued. For instance, on my Parmesan cheese label:

CONTAINS MILK

Well DUH!

Spaghetti

So I make spaghetti every other week or so. Lately, every time I make spaghetti we have guests.

I really did not know how to make spaghetti until I went to college. My mother is an excellent Korean cook but when it comes to American food, she is a bit confused. But anyway, this is doctored sauce with ground meat, zucchini, mushrooms, onions, peppers, fresh oregano, tomato paste and a little sugar.

I do not have a recipe. It is what I have on hand. Sometimes, it is ground turkey, sausage or veal.

Bahn Mi 2.0

So did you know that I have a sweet mom who makes her own kimchi? Today, she brought me over some cucumber kimchi. I made bahn mis with them. My mother would be upset about that but they were SO GOOD!

Zucchini Pancakes

Gardening is fun. Right now we harvested our first zucchini. I made these:

Zucchini Pancakes

One pound zucchini coarsely shredded
2 eggs
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup flour
Salt
Pepper

Combine all the ingredients and fry in oil.

I served them with marinara sauce.

Yohboh liked this, even if it was vegetarian.

But then again, yohboh and I were at a barbecue where there was 30 pounds of meat yesterday and yohboh did his part to consume. His body needed a bit of green.

A sprinkle of salt

It is amazing to me what a spinkling of salt can do. For instance if you eat this ice cream:

it is really good but if you sprinkle a little kosher salt on top it is SUBLIME!

Phallic Much

This is what yohboh picked out of the garden.
