Ina Garten’s Meat Loaf

Ina Garten's Meat Loaf

Hey Friends! I recently made Ina Garten’s Meat Loaf ( link: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/meat-loaf-recipe.html)

The recipe was ridiculously easy and the flavor was great. Unfortunately, being indian — meatloaf isn’t for me. The spice content that I absolutely ADORE is missing, and I’m not quite sure how to add that in. I did enjoy it more the next day with a little hot sauce drizzled all over it.

A little side info about me: I have been obsessing over making meatloaf for months — but I wasn’t sure how to make it without a loaf pan. Luckily, one day I was watching FoodNetwork and BAM Ina made this! It’s apparently better to make meatloaf without the pan, because it allows the excess fat to leave the loaf and gives you the opportunity to drain it. I wish I had use my broiler pan and plate — and not used the parchment paper; that way the fat could have just dripped down in the pan and I would have had to try and scrape it all out from the perimeter of the meatloaf.

I LOVE cooking. Any good ideas on where being a lawyer and cook mesh? If so, please comment below, also comment below if you’ve made this recipe or any other Ina Garten recipes!

Peace & love.

Antico Pizza

Antico's

OKAY THE HYPE IS REAL: Antico’s is ridiculously good! I wish I had more to say. . . . . for all the people that drink it’s BYOB. Dress code: w/e you want. Atmosphere: loud, you wait in a line, order, pay, hawk the tables, find a spot SIT DOWN IMMEDIATELY, and wait for the server to find you with your pizza.

Parking is a little crazy — so just park on the street or the adjacent lot behind it and to the right if you’re facing the front entrance of Antico.

Have you been to Aretha Frankensteins? What did you think about it?

I found the service to be poor, the food to be okay, the wait to be too long, and the venue to be understaffed.

The options were subpar& the most raved about menu item, the biscuits, were not available (ahhh) — due to the oven being broken for over 4 weeks.

The home made apple butter was awesome, but still — it’s the only winning aspect of the whole experience.

Sorry Aretha, but next time I visit Chattanooga you will not be on the bucket list!

Western and Atlantic Railroad

Western and Atlantic Railroad

I love being a tourist in my own state/neighboring state! I seem to always take for granted all the little gems that are near by — luckily I know someone who is well acquainted with GA history, and history in general (visit: Countytrip.wordpress.com), so it’s always a blast when they take me along for the ride.

We visited Western and Atlantic Railroad Chetoogeta Mountain Tunnel. I decided to tap into my inner Bollywood star and pose!

Now on to my outfit for the day (OOTD):  I’m wearing a white cotton sleeveless button down from H&M (probably $12?), bright coral shorts from J. Crew ( probably $20), a Missoni inspired cuff from Forever21 ($9), & tan suede oxford shoes from Express ($25).

Cheers!

Eats On Ponce

Eats On Ponce

Have you been to Eats on Ponce? Well if you’re near the Ponce / Highland area and only have $10, I suggest you give this scrumptious joint a visit!  I went here with my boss  the day before Ramadan started and I LOVED it!  I definitely want to go back!  I ordered the famous EATS Jerk Chicken (awesome), with a side of mac n cheese (good), corn bread (sadly — not as moist as I would like it to be)  and collards (good).

At Eats you can also get an assortment of pasta, where you pick the pasta, the sauce and the vegetables etc. I would definitely check out the menu if you’re looking for a new casual and quick lunch joint or a quick home made dinner on the go!

Bye!
