Good stuff...

Focusing a little on the list... 

I think I should change one of my items. Instead of trying 10 new recipes each year, I think I should have said, "Become obsessed with the Pioneer Woman by stalking her blog, website, and recipes, and deciding that the only new things I will cook have to come from her." 

That's what it seems like anyway... because I love this woman. I totally and utterly think she is the most fantabulous cook ever. Move over Paula Dean and Rachel Ray. I'm telling you... the Pioneer Woman can cook better than anyone. Period. 

So, ladies... if you are single and looking for a way to make a man fall in love with you, or if you are married and want your husband to think you are the bee's knees, you simply must cook some of her food. Trust me... it will work. I think my husband would leave me in about .2 seconds if he met Pioneer Woman. 

I am sure that if she saw my obsessive blogs about her cooking, she would think I'm insane. And that I'm someone she should probably put on a list of potential stalkers. Honestly, I would probably be slightly worried if someone posted such obsessions about me (but please feel free to go ahead because I would absolutely feel incredibly special!). :) I just can't help it. I sincerely and honestly love her recipes. Brad is loving them, too. I think he was quite impressed to find out that the Pioneer Woman doesn't look like a half-ton cow. :) I think it gave him hope that I can actually cook this wonderful deliciousness and not become morbidly obese. 

Anyway... one of my new favorites involves red meat and bacon. Yes... two of the most wonderful things in the world, combined into one dish. Pioneer Woman's meat loaf was incredible. Simply incredible. I can't even say anything else about it. It's just good stuff. If you are looking for a recipe for meat loaf, try this one. It's relatively simple and just downright good. When I turn 30 and have my heart attack, please remind me of how wonderful I thought it was to eat this stuff. I know I will pay for it one day, but not today. :) 

In the words of one of my favorite little people (he loves Yo Gabba Gabba): Try it.... you'll like it. Try it... you'll like it. Meat loaf in your tummy, so yummy, so yummy. :) Sorry, I just couldn't resist it. If I ever say "Try it" about anything, this song automatically pops into my head. Thanks a ton, Joseph.
