If you were to walk into my house and turn on the t.v. I can almost guarantee that it will be tuned to channel 7 (WITN news), The Food Network, HGTV (love me some Property Brothers), Bravo (my guilty pleasure) or TLC. The Food Network is by far the most popular and these days I’m hooked on “The Next Food Network Star.” Last night as we were watching a few DVRed episodes so we could catch up, Big Guy asked me what my POV (point of view) is in the kitchen.
Hmmmm. After a few seconds of thinking, I replied “Healthy meals that my 6 foot 4 man will like.”
And honestly, last night’s dinner fit my POV perfectly. Classic meat loaf with sweet potatoes and okra. Hearty enough for the man of the house and healthy enough for me. The only substitution I made was using homemade gluten-free bread crumbs instead of the panko bread crumbs.
Such a Sunday dinner! A meat, a vegetable and a starch. I simply microwaved the sweet potatoes for 5 minutes (wrapped in a damp paper towel) and then rubbed them with olive oil and salt and threw them in the oven with the meat loaf. The skin ends up being the best part! A little pat of butter and cinnamon (Big Guy went the butter and brown sugar route). And the okra were sauteed with a little seasoning salt.
What’s your POV?
