A quick get away

March 17, 2009

Warning: this post is NOT G-rated.

I am not a shopper.  I don’t like walking around aimlessly, or spending money without reason, or looking at things I cannot afford, or being in crowds, or touching dirty, snot-laden shopping carts.  I’m just not into that.  

The ‘vore on the other hand?  The man is a shopper.  He has a good eye, too.  He comes home with the most amazing skirts, dresses, earrings.  Not for himself, obviously, for me.  😉

If not for the omnivore, I’d live in a monotone burgundy world thanks to my work uniform.  Yep, he keeps me well dressed.  So, anyway, he wanted to get out the house this afternoon, and I conceded to his desire to go shopping.But after a few laps in the stores, I was getting shopper’s leg.  I needed a quick get-away.

Me: Ah, we better get going home, I’ve got to make a nutloaf.

Omnivore: Well you could have just said you had to use the bathroom and didn’t want to use the public restroom, I’d understand.

And although that isn’t exactly the type of getaway I was imagining, it worked nonetheless.  And luckily we maintained our appetites through the evening.  Dinner is served:

Walnut Dinner Loaf

1 cup bread crumbs, toasted
1 cup red beans, mashed
3/4 cup chopped nuts (I used pecan/walnut combo)
1 small onion, diced and sauteed
1 egg white
1/4 cup water, boiled, mixed with 2 T flax seed (can sub with the yolk of the egg or another egg white)
oregano, thyme, salt to taste

Saute onion, when soft, throw in the bread crumbs to toast.  Add spices.  Mix all ingredients and spread in a small loaf pan (I actually spread it into two mini-loaf pans)

Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.  Let sit 10 minutes and then turn out onto a platter.  Top with cheese or tomato sauce if desired.

    Ooh – what a great idea to use nuts in a meatloaf!

    Hahaha, I love that story. And the nutloaf doesn’t look too bad either!
