care for some loaf?

say yes.


my husband almost refuses to eat things termed ‘loaf’. i think i am winning him over though. you might have figured by now that i am a vegetarian, in fact, i grew up one. consequently, i’ve always considered ‘loaf’ the envy of all food groups. mmm, melt in your mouth, loaf. imagine my surprise when i find that real people recoil in horror when faced with one. i am here to say, “try it, you’ll like it.” and brussel sprouts too, while you’re at it.


only fresh ones though. just cut off the stems and peel the outer leaves, then chuck them in an inch of boiling, salted water. simmer, covered, for ten minutes and then toss with butter and salt. it’s hard to say if they’re still good for you after this point, but still good nonetheless.


am i convincing anyone yet? comeon. loaf typically consists of eggs, cottage cheese, walnuts, special k (cereal, imagine that) and seasoning. nothing that will kill you. the trick is coming up with the right combination of ingredients. this recipe did a good job, and if you’re interested, i’ll try to scare up my other favorite recipe and tack it on later.

    that was joanne roasco’s favorite sabbath dish. i love brussel sprouts. but i don’t think i have ever fixed them. you should be getting an email on the stove. could you forward it to me so i can see what it looks like this morning? and also to reuben, so your dad can see. he doesn’t have people’s addresses.

    I just had to try this to see if it tastes like meatloaf. It’s pretty good and I’m not a vegetarian. I used olive oil and not quite as much as it called for. I also added a bunch of seasonings. Yummy! Thanks for sharing.

    I have been reading your blog for over an hour and think it’s just hilarious. I told my husband I found my crafting hero. And now I find you are a vegetarian. (I am also.) That was the last straw. Just had to say thanks for being so inspiring!
