Christmas & Meatloaf recipie

Hi there lovely  ,

yesterdayI had a third day of christmas joy at my boyfriends parents and it was really nice.
me and my boyfriend made dinner and we choose to make meatloaf with a lot of herbs and veggies and it tasted soooo good. ( Ill give you the recipie down below)
and we had such nice presents of my boyfriends parents and it was really cozy and fun.

I got some earwarmers ,a nice white scarf with a hoody, the book : simons cat , which is about cats and the book reminds me SO much of my own cat. I also had a wooden box with fresh tea , a teaegg and a little plate to put the tea-sacks on and last but not least a photoframe to put on my refridgerator.

my new furry earwarmers ?


This is the recipie of the meatloaf , its real easy to make and its a cheap but fancy dinner.
 The ingredients of this recipie is for four people.
    the meatloaf that I made
  • 1 kg of mixed minced meat
  • 2 eggs
  • 120 gram of breadcrumbs
  • 1 clove garlic ( you can add more if you want i did 3 cause i love spice)
  • 1/2 bunch parsley
  • 2 sprigs of thyme ( this smells amazing )
  • a few pats of butter
  • 1 sprig rosemary
ps. you can always add more herbs if you want , go with the flow cause i added some whole cloves of garlic and peper and salt .

  • the meatloaf :
  • preheat the oven at 170 celsius.
  • take a large bowl and mix the meat with chopped egg , breadcrumbs and finely the crushed garlic.
  • TIP : i always put the meat in first and then make a little hole in the meat and then i putt the eggs in it and breadcrumbs , its easier to mix)
  • choose a sharp knife and chop the parsley , rosemary and thyme finely. Add the spices to the meat mixture.
  • knead vigorously and bring to taste with freshly milled pepper and salt.
  • remove the meat mixturen from the bowl and form a thick roll. ( you can choose the forn as you saw i made a kinda long thick stroke)
  • melt a knob of butter in a hot pan and cook the meatloaf on each side until it gets a golden crust.
  • KEEP THE PAN AND JUICES IN , dont wash it
  • place the meatloaf in a flameproof baking dish arrange a few pats of butter and let it bake for 40 minutes in the oven at 170 celsius.
  • TIP : add some laurel leaf ( laurier blad ) cause its delicious with this dish. If you want you can throw in some veggies if you want this will tast so good. But thrown the veggies in the baking dish when its already 20 minutes in the oven , so the veggies can bake for 20 minutes. Add a knob of butter and thats it.

Thank you very much for reading ,

With lots of love ,
