From first glance of the photo on the right, this doesn't look like a meatloaf at all. I'll admit that it got very flattened, but I think it was because I put too much lemon juice in the mixture(in terms of meatloaf liquids, I normally use 1/2 cup per 1 pound of meat or tofu, but this time I used almost 1 cup of liquid(1/3 + 1/2 = 5/6, and I did that all in my head, which amazes everybody at my day job)). But hey, they smelled like cookies when they were baking in the oven.
My dad said this is more of a dessert than a dinner, even though he liked the meatloaf when he tasted it. I guess this is what you get for having a cooking channel totally unlike anything else on YouTube(or the Internet, for that matter, seriously.). The food I make usually has nothing to do with the current Instagram food trends(which as of April 16 are egg donuts, giant milkshakes meant for at least 5 people, rainbow bagels, ramen burgers, and sushi burgers), but that's because I beat to the sound of my own drum, figuratively speaking.
Sure this may lessen the chances of people on the Internet ever stumbling upon this channel, but I do me and you do you(I forget the song this phrase comes on but I keep hearing it on the radio on my way to work, if you know what the song is, please do tell in the comments box below).
I thought I was going to run out of all my Girl Scout cookies after this recipe, but it turns out I have 9 Savannah Smiles cookies and 5 Rah Rah Raisins cookies left, but I'm torn between 3 options:
A) Pan-fry some of the cookies for a future video
B) Crush all remaining cookies and make a bread out of it
C) Just eat them as is.
If you are actually reading this blog post and want to tell me which option you'd like me to do, please do tell in the comments box below.
I was never understood throughout my childhood, adolescence, and college years by my fellow peers. But I just don't know why everybody wants to follow the trendsetters who post food they make. I mean, who gave them the right to rule the food part of the internet anyway!? Is it just because they wear makeup, have a sweet voice(for the record, my voice may be scratchy in the next one or two videos because I'm getting over a sore throat that turned into a sinus infection), and look pretty(I haven't worn makeup since I was 15, and I'm not going to put chemicals on my face just to appease other people)?
Enough ranting. Here's the recipe for this meatloaf:
You will need:
For the cooking equipment:
1 Lasagna Pan
Nonstick cooking spray
For the meatloaf:
2/3 tbsp. of onion powder
2 beaten and whisked eggs
1/2 cup of Greek-yogurt covered cranberries
1/2 cup of raisins
1 tbsp. of lemon zest
1/3 cup of lemon juice(you probably should reduce that amount to 1 tbsp. if you don't want a flattened meatloaf)
1/2 cup of strawberry Greek yogurt
1/2 cup of crushed up Savannah Smiles Girl Scout Cookies(about 8 cookies)
1/2 cup of crushed up Rah Rah Raisins Girl Scout Cookies(about 4 cookies)
1 pound of chopped, drained, crumbled up, firm tofu
1. Put all ingredients into a large bowl.
2. Mix all the ingredients together until you get a meatloaf mixture that is firm, to your liking. As Frank Sinatra once said in the song "New York, New York", "It's up to you!...
3. Spray a lasagna pan with nonstick cooking spray.
4. Form 2 loaves.
5. Bake in a 350 degree Fahrenheit preheated oven for 40-45 minutes.
