Here I am, sitting at work, at 9:30 on a Friday night, waiting for a big lummox to finish the work he won't do during the day.
Anyways, my best friend from High School Graduated from Army Basic Training today. Congrats to him, except on choice of services.
Silly Hoo-ah's.

Not too long ago, I made meatloaf for the first time, and according to the wife, it was a hit.
I looked up the recipe on
This is what I found:


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten


Mix all ingredients together gently. Form into a loaf and place in baking dish or loaf pan. Top with more ketchup if desired. Bake at 350° for about 1 hour.
Serves 4.
It's a good base, but I prefer more flavor. I add minced or crushed garlic (to your taste) and a bit of chili powder or perhaps some hot sauce of your choice.
Also, mix about 1/3 cup ketchup with whatever spice you flavored the meat with and 1/4 tbsp of brown sugar to use as the top coat.

My suggested side dishes:
Potatoes, mashed or baked
A large rock.

I'm back

I wanted to start this while in Iraq.
Then I wanted to start it when I got back.
Then I wanted to start it the other day, but all of the crap that is currently stinking up the world doesn't seem important enough to talk about all of the time.

So Hi.
My name is Chris. I am a Marine, and I'm really awesome, and I;m the tall guy on the left.
