Handsome Hubby has to travel internationally for work several times a year. When he is gone I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. It really helps to make time go by faster until he is home. It is also a fantastic time to get the kinks worked out of recipes and even try recipes I have seen on the Internet without having to worry about hubby’s dinner being ruined if it doesn’t come out.
That is exactly what happened during his last trip… I thought I would try a vegetarian meatloaf. Now anybody who reads this blog knows, I am about as far from a vegetarian as it gets. However, I liked the idea of trying a new recipe for this “meat-less” Monday phenomenon I am seeing all over the Internet. This particular day I learned a valuable lesson… always have gluten free cereal in your pantry. I worked on this meatloaf and when it came out of the oven it smelled great! But… after trying to “cut” it, and I use that term loosely, I knew I was going to need a dinner alternative. So Pebbles cereal it was!!
Everybody has kitchen disasters and I am grateful that this particular one was unwitnessed by anybody but me and the pets.
The next day I started to work on this Gluten Free Tuna Cakes recipe and now I finally think it’s ready to share!! Thankfully not all of my recipe developments in the kitchen are a total disaster like the vegetarian meatloaf… but maybe that is just it… I need to stick to actual meat.
