Feeling better, Krishna Lunch, and meatloaf recipe

I’m finally starting to feel better, so hopefully I’ll be able to start posting regularly again. I do have a few things to show you, however. First is the awesome soup Mike made for me while I was sick! If you want to know how he did it, go here. I must say it wasn’t the way I would have made it, but it was extremely tasty, especially with the grilled cheese to go with it.

I also ate the Krishna lunch for the first time recently. The Krishnas area religious group that is prominent in Gainesville. Some think of them as an offshoot of Hinduism, but for years they’ve been serving vegetarian lunches to students on campus. I’ve never had classes near the library where they serve, but this semester I do, so I decided to give it a try. For $3.00 I got white rice, a vegetable curry, spaghetti, a salad, and this pineapple-y cake stuff. Everything was great! I don’t think I’ve ever had vegetables this way, but I want to see if I can find a recipe somewhere. The salad had a mild, lemon-y dressing that was tasty, and my favorite part (of course) was the cake! It was very moist - the guy used an ice cream scoop to serve it. They also had a delicious mint-flavored lemonade. I got a lot of food for what I paid, and I plan on going back often. I must say they were also some of the nicest people I’ve ever met.

I was asked by someone recently how I made the individual meat loaves, so if you’d like to know, here’s the recipe. It’s actually not so much a recipe as a guideline….they’re more like guidelines, anyway (name the movie!)
