Meat loaf

So I'm looking for a good recipe for meat loaf...I know, I know, meatloaf? Allrecipes.com is the place of choice and the first one I come upon is "Cottage Cheese Meat loaf" by Maggie in Lindon, Utah. The description says 'Putting cottage cheese in meat loaf makes it wonderfully moist,' assures Maggie _____ of Lindon, Utah." The Let me just say, if you don't already know...FIRST cardinal sin in my kitchen is the word "moist". The SECOND cardinal sin is the word "pamper". I guess a bad combo would be to say "change that baby's moist pampers"...now do you see what I'm sayin'?! Anyway, cottage cheese in my meatloaf didn't sound good anyway...and when she describes it using the "M" word I've just decided to never go to Lindon on vacation either. So, Maggie from Lindon, you can take your cottage cheese meat loaf recipe and give it to someone who cares about more then dry, but less then wet hunk of meat.



Love and Hate

Two things I love in the past few days....Harry Potter and starting to finish off decorating our home....Two things I hate (don't tell Carson I said the "H" word) finding smeared poop in the carpet yesterday and finding smeared poop in the carpet today. The backwards diaper thing isn't working anymore...we have no choice left but to turn em' AND tape em'! They hadn't even pooped in their diaper, I guess they thought they'd save us the trouble of cleaning off their bum so they just pooped right on the carpet and did us an extra favor of smearing it in....gotta love twins.


Late night opener to Transformers was a blast, but a little disappointed in the flick. A lot of junkie stuff and practically all action and not much story....still worth seeing...maybe once. Bella has calmed down on the biting....interestingly after Peyton bit her back. We had such a blast at the Johnson Family reunion in Blackfoot. Good food as usual and fun to see all our cuz's.
We've enjoyed a few sleepovers from our neices Heidi and Whitney...they keep us young and updated on technology! I got to watch the Michael Jackson Memorial...if you didn't, you can still repent. Wished I could be at the Staples Center watching it in person.
Yard work, yard work, yard work...oh and did I mention lots of weeds and filthy heels from walking in dirt? Endless.
Wish I could be with the Farina family in LA this weekend....food and most importantly family!
