Meatloaf.

Meatloaf. It’s one of those homey, comfort meals – the sort of thing mom makes when she’s out of ideas and happens to have mince lying about. Hardly elegant or refined, it’s really just minced meat, bound and baked in the shape of a loaf.

But it can be elevated. Stuff it full of cheese, and wrap it in bacon – as one example. Look, I’m not really going to evangelise meatloaf here. The only reason I used it is because today is Marvin Lee Aday’s birthday – yes, the guy you probably know as Meat Loaf. I’d post a picture of him, naked covered in bacon and stuffed with cheese – but I think I’d rather save you from that indignity. I would do anything for lulz…but I won’t do that.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
