For meatloaf with my friend. My friends love when I make meatloaf, but I worked hard on that recipe and want to keep it to myself. Does that make me a jerk?
Not at all. It’s ok to have the odd mysterious secret !
It’s pretty standard old lady culture to give out the recipe just a little bit wrong or missing the secret spice that makes it perfect to keep other people from making it as good as you do.
Lol. That’s actually funny that people do that
That’s so terrible ! But also brilliant !
I come from a German Baptist/Mennonite family. Food is serious business.
Best potluck I ever attended was a Mennonite one. A lady actually gave me her peanut butter bar recipe!
It’s probably fine. You’re fine.
@ZmaGal i never give my real recipes because I can’t. I don’t measure, so I give general directions.
Meatloaf is meatloaf.
I’m sure you’re meatloaf is good, but…
No, she can get a recipe from the internet. Everything is on the internet these days.
Do what makes you comfortable.
She can’t get my recipe on the Internet. But yeah, she can find one there. There’s lots of them
This is me, too. Drives Blake crazy because nothing ever comes out the same twice.
Hey do you know that @ThePickinSkunk can make sauerkraut? I looked up the recipe. I might make it. My great grandmother’s maiden name was Copenhaver. So I do have some German roots on my mother’s side.
I saw a Mennonite family in the store once. Best behaved children I’ve ever seen.
We were just talking about Sauerkraut at our friend’s house. Apparently there are different ways of making it. Hope yours turns out well.
be stingy with your meatloaf recipe if you want…must be special for you to guard it like that…
