Meatloaf, smeatloaf, double beatloaf and other ground beef.

Meat was not intended to be on a bone and sold in nice cuts. Meat was ground and canned and molded. The more poundage per ring mold, the better. Topped with catsup (NOT KETCHUP) or mayo, parsley sprigs, olives, velveeta and we are eating goooood tonight.

I could not post all 350 tasty hamburger, jiffy, and foreign meal ideas. 

Yankee Tostadas. An oxymoron unto itself and another reason for people who live in the Southwest to laugh at anyone north of the Mason-Dixon Line. Now Yankees are pretty crafty with their brass knuckle coffee cup contraption. Make fun of this, you're liable to get tepid liquid thrown in your face followed by a good ole fashioned beating. 
In THEORY this horn o' plenty of ground beef could pass for palatable. However, the meatloaf, smeatloaf, double beatloaf has peas has peas plummeting to an early demise because they can't take the special sauce. The bleeding meatballs aren't too encouraging either.
Look at that. There is a method to the madness. No more than 10 olive halves and 10 globs of mayonnaise per layer. It's all about ratio and proportion. Dare to add one more or one less of either and this won't work. It might cause a small ripple on the atmosphere.
Meatloaf, smeatloaf, double beat loaf. I hate meatloaf. The white sauce is just so white. According to the recipe, it is made of cream and mushroom soup and sour cream. White + cream of mushroom soup does not equal more white. Do the collapsed three slices also have a scored mushroom or was too much money invested in parsley sprigs? These are the questions that need to be asked before taking a bite. But who would take a bite?
 COW-a bunga! King sized meatballs with canned cheese soup and a sprig of parsley. Easily a pound each. They are certain to please the family too.
Upside down American Flag indicates a sign of distress. Is this mug telling us something about this Vegetable Meat Medley?
