Veggie Loaded Meatloaf

Veggie Loaded Meatloaf

I was craving meatloaf. This is a sentence I have said as many as never times in my life, but it was the case the other night. If you are following along, you probably noticed the trend of healthy, mostly meatless, and pretty inexpensive dishes recently, because that is how I try to cook this time of year. Plus I keep having to make mac and cheese stuffed burgers for the cookbook publicity so I am trying to counteract some of that. That all being said, I wanted to make a vegetarian or mostly vegetarian “loaf”. I did some research, but most veggie loafs were loaded with grains and tofu, and not actual veggies like I wanted. I decided to just wing it and do mostly veg with a little beef and some cheese, sort of like a veggie heavy lightened version of a regular meatloaf.

Pomegranate Orange Salsa

Pomegranate Orange Salsa

The salsa of the month at Cafe Burrito in December is Pomegranate-Orange. The flavor and texture of this salsa is like none I have ever tasted before. The way the seeds pop in your mouth while you munch on a burrito is really a unique sensation! If you wanna try it, you better come in soon, because the distributor told me pomegranate season ends early this year and they don’t expect to have them in stock after Christmas.
