Have you been dying to hear about my other new toy? I know, I know, you must have been on the edge of your seat waiting for this post!
I GOT A CAMERA!!!!!
My parent's gave us one for Christmas. They knew we had been wanting one for wedding/honeymoon/future use and were saving up for it. So..... THEY GAVE US ONE!
Of course, until then, I need to practice by photographing food. Of course.
My mom's meatloaf was always a favorite of mine. As an adult, I find that it's just the recipe on the back of the Lipton Soup Secrets Onion Soup Mix. Since the box came with 2 packets of "spices," I made the potato recipe on the back, too!
Clean 4 potatoes.
(How great is this picture! Now, if you are a photographer, you will probably not be impressed. HOWEVER, if you have seen ANY of the past pictures I have taken with older cameras, you will notice how much better all the photos in this post are. Be impressed. Please. For me.)
Cut 4 potoates. Try your hand at different photography settings on new camera.
Make sure you cut them into even sized chunks so they cook at the same time.
Mix the potatoes with a little oil (I used grapeseed oil) and the packet of onion mix.
Spread it out on the baking sheet and bake it at 425 for about 30-40 minutes. Make sure to stir it occasionally.
I like to use a mix of ground beef, pork, and veal. Toss it into a bowl and follow the directions on the back of the box of soup mix.
Shape it into a loaf.
Or a brain. Doesn't it look like a brain?!
Bake it for an hour at 350.
Slice and enjoy with potatoes! Or whatever.
