"...Plus, the gigantic menus mean everyone can order their personal comfort food. For me, embarrassingly enough, that's meatloaf (and the meatloaf at 24 Diner is served with bacon-braised green beans, come on), but maybe your friend is more of a biscuits & gravy girl, or fond of using the spongy pain au lait bun of their bacon and cheddar burger to wipe her tears..."
"...Randy Travis has a tongue-in-cheek good time with his role as a trucker who writes tuneless country songs in his abundant spare time. Meat Loaf, on the other hand, as the gospel-spouting bad guy and sputtering loon, plays a character more tired than yesterday's meatloaf..."
"...Anyone who has ever ordered food from the Kitchen Door knows there are two things that can't be skipped: the chicken salad and the meatloaf sandwich...."
"...Starring: Emily Watson, Rachel Griffiths, David Morrissey and James Frain. For all its knock-'em-dead acting and aggressively stylish direction, Hilary and Jackie is still best described as arthouse comfort food: a big, proteiny platterful of cinematic meatloaf cooked to order for an audience with a limitless appetite for soap opera coated with a light, sophisticated glacé of highbrow-culture ambience..."
"...Once you pass the salad section with six or seven options (99cents to $1.25), the real meat and potatoes come into view. There may be huge tender beef tips in savory gravy, chicken with dressing, sturdy enchiladas, thick juicy slices of meatloaf....."
"...Meatloaf's on the radio, insisting there is but one unnameable thing he would do for love...."
"...I've been working my way through the prepared foods in the Go Go deli case for a couple of weeks now, choosing several different entrées and pairing them with equally inviting side dishes. I enjoyed a slice of Meatloaf ($4) with Roasted Asparagus ($1) one evening and had Chicken Pot Pie ($4) in a rich, flaky crust with some crunchy Green Beans Almondine ($1) for lunch the next day..."
"...The diner burger – two thin flat-top patties with diced tomatoes, unpretentious American cheese, and spinach instead of lettuce – is solid. The special – bacon-wrapped meatloaf with mashed sweet potatoes and fried spinach – was big enough for two meals..."
"...An Oprah fanatic who hasn’t turned off her TV in 11 years, Alice lines her apartment walls with videocassettes of Oprah’s show, whose episodes she can recite by heart. Yet Alice’s show is filled with things like cooking episodes featuring meatloaf cake (with sweet potato icing) and libelous reenactments of childhood traumas..."
"...Though the idea is inspired by the old holiday song, guests aren't likely to find partridges, pears, or French hens, but there will be smoked quail, Cornish game hens, and turducken, not to mention pork chops, steaks, prime rib, and meatloaf. Also be sure to keep an eye on their Facebook page during the next 12 days, because that's where they'll announce the special craft beer pairings to go with the daily dishes...."
"...The major complaint I have about this cookbook is that it operates from a baseline assumption that its audience possesses cast iron cookware in a variety of shapes and sizes and serving individual functions. To wit: The recipe for Texas fried catfish calls for a Lodge 7-quart cast iron Dutch oven; Gooey Chocolate Skillets call for six Lodge 5-inch cast-iron skillets; and Upside-Down Meatloaf calls for a Lodge 10x5x3-inch cast iron loaf pan..."
"...During Saturday’s “Self-Editing: Adapting Your Work for Screen” panel, Neil Flynn talked about his first meeting, over lunch, with Paul Dano, who would eventual play Flynn in Being Flynn, the film adaptation of his memoir Another Bullshit Night in Suck City. Unsure how to act, Flynn said his wife, the actress Lili Taylor, coached him to “just let [Dano] take the lead.” Flynn took her advice quite literally: “He ordered a meatloaf sandwich, so I ordered a meatloaf sandwich.”..."
"...Check out their Orange Scones, and their Walnut Scones. They are the best! [image-3] What will be cooking at Dai Due? This week the “hot” menu includes Lamb Meatloaf on ciabatta with marinated artichokes, red onion and mint mayonnaise; Chorizo and Egg Taco with charred onion salsa; Sweet Potato Poutine with a fried egg, chorizo, boar gravy and Mill-king curds; Hairston Creek Asparagus with smoked boar pancetta, a fried egg, brioche toast and hollandaise; and Toulouse Sausage with butter beans, collards and pickled leeks...."
"...Our main courses also showed real creativity in the kitchen. We selected Mia's Meatloaf served with buttermilk mashed potatoes, green beans, and spicy cornbread ($14.95) and the 16-ounce skillet-seared double-cut pork chops with caramelized onions, Gorgonzola cheese, and demi-glace ($18.95)..."
"...Some friends joined me for dinner at Patsy's last week, and we sampled a variety of dishes from the newly revised Texas roadside cafe comfort-food menu. At both lunch and dinner, the menu features a short list of appetizers and salads, sandwiches, and burgers cleverly named for local celebrities, and blue-plate entrées such as meatloaf and chicken-fried steak..."
"...For entrées, we sampled the meatloaf and the pork chop, both of which were served with green beans. Both meat items were perfectly acceptable, if unremarkable..."
"...In short, it's the touchy-feely we've come to expect, but glinting through the cracks are some surprisingly progressive ideas about living in harmony in the midst of nature's unavoidably antagonistic food chain. (Carnivore parents may cringe when kids push away tomorrow night's meatloaf, citing Manny the vegan mammoth as their spiritual guide.) The evolutionary premise is mined for solid laughs, certainly some of the smartest humor of Ice Age; its overall wit isn't quite as sharp as Diego's saber-teeth..."
"...A family reunion of the aging more-Austin-than-Austin counterculture crowd, you couldn't light up a joint without attracting a gaggle of ex-hippies who'd promptly tell you about their exploits at the 'Dillo. Even the youthful minority quickly revealed they were raised on Threadgill's meatloaf..."
"...On the locals' sophomore LP, tracked at Memphis' historic Ardent Studios under the guidance of Big Star drummer Jody Stephens, the power soul sextet harnesses music's uplifting potential. On highlight "Out of Style," akin to an early Meatloaf-Jim Steinman composition, bassist/vocalist Justin Smith provides a lyrical antidote to the hopeless feelings that consume us..."
"...People say geniuses see things differently, but John Prine sees exactly what the rest of us do and articulates it in distinct terms uniquely witty, heartfelt, and unpretentious. He’s forever the wisecrack sitting at the bar of a small town diner with a plate of meatloaf, a newspaper, and a mouthful of perfect quips...."
