"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Sr. Innocente's Favorite Meatloaf

When I was growing up, I never liked any meatloaf I ever tasted or eaten. One summer, when I went to visit my niece, Felicia and her husband Cedric, she said that Cedric was fixing meatloaf for dinner. I wasn't too excited, however, I always give things a try. Everyone in her family was so excited that he was making meatloaf, so I was a little more open to trying it.

When Cedric finished fixing the meatloaf I tried a taste of it. It was absolutely delicious, like no other meatloaf I had ever tasted. In fact, I was looking forward to having some of the meatloaf for lunch the next day, but it was all gone. That's the day I said "It's meatloaf that should be put in a cookbook." I even wished that I could bring some back home to the Mother House for the other Sisters to taste.

Now, whenever I visit, Cedric always makes a large meatloaf so that I can have as much as I like, and enough for the next day.
