A Quiet Week-End Before The Storm...





Yesterday, my wife and I made one of our "Let's Get Outta Dodge" day trips to a casino in Manistee, Michigan. We had fun, but the place was packed, and lady luck wasn't paying too much attention to us... Got home, snarfed the last of the leftover pizza from Friday night, and crashed to watch absolutely nothing interesting on the TV.. We decided for Sunday dinner, we(me!) would make a meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and some steamed asparagus, along with a traditional shortbread lemon bar. You can figure out which picture is which- I hope!
This coming week will most likely be a life crossroads for me, which I can't explain right now, but will later. Things change for a reason, and it should be interesting...

Casdok said...

Things do indeed change for a reason. Hope it is interesting.

Wow--funny what you said about a crossroads. That's where I've been at lately, career wise. After months of musing, I just gave my notice on Friday. I'm going back to self employment, doing freelance writing and creative direction.

I hope wish you the very best with your crossroads.

DogB- My friend, a square meal always brings us back to Earth.. My next week will be bizarre, to say the least!
casdok- As a woman who has seen more adversity than I could ever imagine, this will not even be worthy of comment.. You do good things, dear...
Urban V- I am happy for you! You are creative, and need to live life on your own terms.. Scary, I know, but I have seen your talent- and properly applied, you will will do great!

Annie said...

Turn to the right, Buffalo Dick, and see what's coming up. I hope it's satisfying.

Roger said...

Good grub! I used to like to go to Soaring Eagle when I lived there always seem to break even!

Jen said...

As always I'm wishing I had a Sunday dish of those waiting for me too!
So what is this change?! Talk about a clif hanger!

Odat said...

Great dinner!!! I love meatloaf..used to make it every Sunday.
Can't wait to hear about the Buffalo crossing the road!
Peace

Dana said...

You'd think I'd know by now that visiting your blog on an empty stomach is never a good idea! Meatloaf is one of my favorite comfort foods, served hot, or the next day on a sandwich!

buffalodickdy said...

annie- Thanks! It is a situation I'm not entirely in control of- sometimes you leap, sometimes you get shoved...
rog- Soaring Eagle is bigger than ever...
jen- I don't know exactly what will happen, but change is coming...
odat- This meatloaf was the best I've ever made! And I've only made 100 of them...
dana- leftovers we got! I make a 3 pound meatloaf... Tonight, probably a thick slice on toast(open-face!), with a sharp cheese melted over it...

Lynda said...

Sounds like you might be having some interesting times ahead.

Meatloaf looks great.

Beth said...

Life crossroads? wow...sounds serious....

Michelle Ann said...

OMG! I adore meatloaf...and if mashed potatoes aren't available...then homemade Mac N Cheese is the only other suitable side...

Tanya Kristine said...

Hmmmi have to say i'm not fond of hangers. i hope it's a fantastic change.

oh and don't feel bad...lady luck ignores me too.

Akelamalu said...

Sorry Lady Luck didn't smile on you at the casino Buff. Whatever is about to happen I hope it turns out good for you. x

buffalodickdy said...

lynda- Glad you liked the look of the meatloaf, and don't worry- I aways land on my feet!
beth- It is.. but it is time for a change..
michelle ann I will eat mac-n-cheese anytime, any where!!
Tanya- A bit bittersweet, but time none the less..
Ake- If you knew me for a long time, you'd be afraid for the other people! Thanks, though.. Worrying about me is like worrying that Jack the Ripper was out of sharp knives...

Yummy stuff uncle B!!!

Bina said...

Oh. My. God that looks so freaking good! Now I'm gonna have to make me some meatloaf tonight. Good thing I pulled some hamburger meat out of the freezer last night. Yummy, yummy!!!!!

pinknest said...

mmmm look at that gravy! yum. my stomach is growling and now i must go forage for food. it's a sad thing that platter is not here for me.

Jeff B said...

Isn't amazing that you can make meatloaf a hundred different times and it tastes slightly different each time.

Hope your week turns out well for you.

UncleBuff,

No matter what you're at a crossroads about, you are one of my wisest friends and I know you've got the brains to make the best decision for you and all involved.

Mike- You're alive! Good! Hope all is well with you and yours...
bina- Don't over work your hand making meatloaf!
Pink- I would love to cook anything you wish someday!
jeff- Big deal postponed- again!
Snowniece- I never give up, and I believe there is always a solution. I chose a long time ago, never to be a victim,- I have seen scary, and I know now most people are afraid of things that they can actually control...

MarmiteToasty said...

See, I aint never had 'meat loaf' BUT to me it always gives me visions of little elderly folk in a home chewing tough meat and then spitting it into a pan, squashing it down and baking it...... sorry but it so does lol

Sherry said...

Yummy! That is making my stomach growl. I hope your life changes work out for you.

buffalodickdy said...

Marmy- Imagine a 3lb seasoned hamburger with no bun- that's a meatloaf.... Old people here order "No-chew-food"....
sherry- The main event has been put off, but I'm spending a day with two highers ups, and my patience is at an end...

Anndi said...

You always make me so darn hungry with those pics...

I'll keep mi fingers and toes crossed that the cross-roads takes you in the direction you want it to.

**hugs**
