Meatloaf: A dish that never gets old
Some things just never go out of style. Meatloaf immediately comes to mind. I have only known two people who did not like meatloaf. One was born not liking it, and the other, I think, lost her taste for it as an adolescent. Perhaps she got a bite of a meatloaf gone bad, or, maybe her mom just made lousy meatloaf. You surely could not blame that on today’s meatloaf.
Meatloaf is not as inexpensive as it used to be. I think I previously mentioned that I bought delicious 2-inch-thick pork chops for a quarter a pound less than the 70/30 percent fat hamburger.
Speaking of food costs, a local supermarket has been selling good, lean, sliced bacon (that we have been paying $4 to $4.50 a pound for) at $2.98. This bacon has been at that price for at least since midsummer, and this is not a sale. I see people do what I do -- go out there for bacon, then buy all their groceries there, rather than go to their regular market. I think that sales tactic is called a loss-leader, which means a store takes a loss on one product to get the customer inside the store. It sure looks like it is working with the bacon. The customers then go back and tell their friends they got bacon for $2.98 a pound.
