"Fifteen years ago, three close friends, married with children, living in New England, sat drinking wine and bitching. The winters were too long, our children unruly, our husbands cranky. We declared March as “Hate Your Mate Month”. Alas, that little moniker didn’t sit well with the men, so we decided to institute the “Ides of Meatloaf”.
“What”, you may ask “is the Ides of Meatloaf?” Comfort food. Mac and cheese, Jello salad, green bean casserole, Ding-dongs and Ho-hoes. Remember when your mom made mashed potatoes out of the box, with gravy out of an envelope? Lipton French onion soup mix with sour cream as a sophisticated dip with Fritos. Lasagna. Cream pies. Meatloaf.
"It became an annual affair. People brought pancakes, BLTs, corn-on-the-cob, deviled eggs. Someone even brought a tube of cookie dough with a plastic spoon in it. We’d have three different meatloaf recipes, and vote on our favorite."
I'm SO totally stealing this idea. What is better than comfort food when you're feeling down? NOTHING. Except maybe a new kitten.
