Easy Meat Loaf with Homemade Olive Bread and Grilled Veggies

Part 3 of Easy Peasy Meals

Aaaah….the Meat Loaf…brings back such fond memories of our early cooking adventures Didi…remember..you saw the recipe in one of Jethima’s cookbooks and decided to make it. I was staying at your Kirti Nagar home for a few days then…you being the Head Chef and I being your Sous Chef began making this dish. Once it was done, we quietly took it to the terrace, with our plates and ate the whole loaf!!!! Ufo (our beloved pet dog) kept inspecting the area around us lest we drop a few bits and pieces for him..but in despair 😛 Thinking of that day today is so strange..we both have come a loooooong long way from that phase…not only in-terms of cooking but also in terms of our girths 😀 Do you have some pics from that time to post? Maybe looking at them I will get inspired to work out!! hehhehehee….anyways, going back to the post today, I am sharing it coz I think it is an easy dish even though it sounds complicated. Don’t you agree Didi?

Homemade Eggless Mushroom and Cheese Jumbo Ravioli with a herbed Butternut-Walnut Sauce

Hello Cousins!!

Finally we begin to stir!!  Daibi would be back in action in a few days..they just returned from an awesome Delhi By Foot Photography and Bird-Watching trip from Bharatpur!! Its such a delight to see the pictures that they have brought back…makes me long for a teleporting vehicle to transport me there!! I too wanna witness this annual migration of thousands of spectacular looking birds who travel primarily from Sakha Republic (Yakutia) and western Siberia in Russia…aaah! some day I will!! But Daibi, don’t you wanna visit the Okhla Bird Sanctuary as well?? I mean that’s one of the things you must do being in Delhi during the winters!!

No no…I will not get carried away with my melodramtic yearning for Delhi winters…STOP Dakhina Mitra!! And I am back 😀  Didi, kudos to you and my dearest Rizimon for making those amazing uttapams….I learned to make them when I was 21 and he is only 9!! I agree with our Blogger friend Rashmi about the fact that most Indian boys/men don’t know how to cook! But being in a household where grandmommy, mommy, mommy’s sister, daddy and mommy’s brother are avid cooks/food lovers, I think we haven’t left Rizimon with any other choice, but to cook ;). That doesn’t mean he is not a foodie himself….I still remember a 4-5 year old Rizimon ordering a All-American Banana Split icecream at Nirulas, Delhi for himself. There was only a quarter plate left-over for you and me who were eagerly waiting for him to leave most of it!!

Today I will write about an Italian pasta dish which I think Rizimon can try with a little help from you.  A few weeks back you had sent me a pic where he was frying potatoes by himself, so I think he can manage doing this too..I am also pasting a link on quick pasta meals for him coz I know how easy it is to make a pasta dish!
