Don't you just hate it when you mess up dinner?
In an effort to keep the house cool, I put together a meatloaf to cook in the slow cooker while at lunch today. I've made it this way before and used the identical recipe I used last time, when my husband LOVED it and it turned out perfectly.
Well. Just went home to check on it. The "loaf" part isn't working...it's not holding together. I've currently got a bunch of broken up meat just sitting in its own fat in the slow cooker. (I'm pretty sure I had extra lean beef last time...this time it was labeled lean but OBVIOUSLY isn't). Likely won't be edible.
Looks like an out to dinner night, since the cabinets are otherwise entirely bare of any protein and I don't have time to grocery shop and cook something else between the time I get off at 5 pm a meeting tonight at 6:30 p.m.
It's been one of those days!
