With what was at hand, I made meatloaf!
Toasted the bread and crushed it in the same bag.
Cut off and cut up the carrots and onions and celery.
Thawed the mince pork - marinating it with dark soya sauce, light soya sauce and some sugar. Mixed the egg and the bread crumbs with it.
The last time I made this was while I was studying in Australia. I vaguely remember what poportion of what is required. And I was too lazy to look up any recipie....so, decided to go with instinct.
Whipped up 2 loafs of meatloaf.
1) Kid's meatloaf - using up boyboy's milk and bigger chunks of bread.
2) Adult meatoaf - added tomato ketchup, a mixture of Italian herbs, pepper and the rest of the breadcrumbs.
Meatloaf #1 held up better becuase of the bigger bread chunks. Meatloaf #2 tasted better becuase of the ketchup and the herbs. But it didn't hold up very well because I didn't have sufficient bread crumbs!
One 'dangerous' thing about baking is that you don't really know if the result is fit for dinner until it is ready and cooled down and tried.
