Tonight I ate ham loaf. I went to a dinner before a meeting that I was to present at about my role as a Family Nutrition Program Assistant. I knew that a lovely group of older community ladies was making the dinner. In my previous life, when I loved all things common, I would be super excited for this. However, tonight I actually thought about eating before I went so if the food was not an option for my body, I wouldn't starve. I ended up eating a tiny bit before, but still went to the dinner hungry. I then found out that ham loaf is my co-worker's favorite meal and that is why we were eating it. The dinner was great. We had some cheesy potatoes, green beans with bacon, ham loaf, and crescent rolls. So much for pretending to be a vegetarian. The dessert portion was a pumpkin cake mix bar big enough for two people. Yum.
If you've never had ham loaf, I suppose it is something that we should all try once. I have to say that it was actually good. Definitely not something that I will be making on my own or ever suggesting somebody make, but something that I can write about at least. Since dining on this delicacy, I've learned that it is a common food in the Pennsylvania Dutch Country and not really known in the rest of the country. I suppose we must be extra special having the ground meat kit in our local grocery meat section.
