Playing along with Shannon from Rocks In My Dryer .
My husband likes meatloaf. He loves my meatloaf. I love my husband, and I like to make meatloaf for him, but I hate putting my hands in it, and it just doesn't mix well with a spoon. The last time I had made it, I tried putting sandwich bags on my hands, and it actually worked pretty well for keeping my hands from getting yucky, but I still had a slimy mixing bowl to contend with.
We had meatloaf again Monday, and I took my idea a step further. Gallon sized ziplock bags! Put all your ingredients in, press most of the air out, zip, and squish, squeeze, or knead until ingredients are thoroughly mixed. You can even shape it while it's still in the bag, turn it out into the loaf pan, and pop it into the oven.
No muss, no fuss! Am I a genius or what?
