It’s 11:30 a.m. on Super Bowl Sunday and there’s still time to make a touchdown of a meatloaf before the game! This traditional and delicious comfort food, credited to Jenny Jones is the perfect, simple and very American dish to enjoy today. Jenny even shows you how to make the grease “melt away,” that results in a healthier version then if one made it in a loaf pan. Get your quick cooking lesson, recipe and appetite going by checking Jenny out on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=jenny+jones+meatloaf.
There’s hardly anything better to go with any meatoaf than mashed potatoes. For four, use 2 pounds of Yukon Golds, peeled and rough cut into smaller pieces. Cover with water, add salt to taste, and 2-3 cloves of peeled garlic. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, simmer for 10 minutes. When potatoes can be pierced easily, drain, and mash with 2 tablespoons olive oil. When smooth dribble in 1 cup heated low fat organic milk. You can skip the ricer on Super Bowl Sunday, but truthfully, if your potatoes are fully cooked, a masher with some muscle power (apropos for the day) will give you silky smooth potatoes anyway.
So run to the store (no one will be there now..), get your ingredients and score a touchdown at home. You’ll be glad you did. As to who will be the winner today? I say it will be Denver, only because I have friends in Boulder, and that’s about as close to the crystal ball as I am going to get. Who knows and who cares….there will be a winner, but given that neither team is from San Francisco, so I am still perplexed why the city has so much “skin in the game.”
