"GRILLED MEATLOAF? WHO ORDERS GRILLED MEATLOAF?"

Last night Lea and I went to Amarillo with four other couples to catch a nice dinner and a play. We ate at Logan’s Steakhouse, and I thought I’d eat healthy, so I ordered the grilled fish. Lea ordered the grilled meatloaf.

It didn’t take me long to question her ordering skills (or lack thereof), “Grilled meatloaf? Did you just order grilled meatloaf? Didn’t you see the steaks, chicken and fish on the menu? What kind of restaurant would even serve grilled meatloaf? Who would ever go to a restaurant and actually order grilled meatloaf off the menu? Not me, not if it was the only thing left on the menu.”
Her reply was simply, “I bet it will be good.”

I thought to myself, “Yea, when pigs fly.”
When our food finally came, my fish was bland. Then I tried a bite of her grilled meatloaf … it was FANTASTIC. Who would have ever thought grilled meatloaf could taste that good? Right then I wished I would have ordered grilled meatloaf . . . but I kept that to myself.
Dad-gum-it, why does Lea always have to be so smart?
“There is a way that SEEMS right unto a man …”
Proverbs 14:12

    There is a way that seems right unto a man … but in the end it leads to death.

    Leads to death? That must have been some bad fish!

    Tim: Or Lea read the "When pigs fly" comment! LOL Kudos to Lea! Thanks for the laugh, Trey!

    think about it…just a grilled burger with the ketchup and onions already installed….

    Funny! I would think grilled meatloaf would be about the same as a really fancy grilled burger. My wife loves to put a lot of stuff into our burgers and they sometimes look like meatloaf. Gotta say, though, there are very few people out there who make a good meatloaf. Apparently Lea found one of them.

  5. Janice Garrison says:

    I love "good" meatloaf. Cracker Barrel has really good meatloaf too.

  6. James Milstead says:

    The best meatloaf ever was one I smoked over mesquite wood at low heat in my weber smoker.

  7. Amanda S. says:

    Donna G said "think about it…just a grilled burger with the ketchup and onions already installed….". Genius wording.

    If a menu used those words to describe Grilled Meatloaf, my husband would have been on it like white on rice.

    Amanda … I agree. This is all making me very hungry.

    Lea is the woman – grilled meatloaf sounds good brother.

  10. Lisa L says:

    Good grief, Trey, you've been married to Lea HOW LONG?!

    I love, love, love meatloaf. Unfortunately I'm the only one in my family, so I don't get it very often! :o( Now, *grilled* meatloaf has me intrigued.

  11. Rodney Olsen says:

    It's one of life's deepest mysteries.

    Why is it that no matter how much time you spend looking over the menu and choosing just the right dish, the food on someone else's plate is always better than what you ordered?

    great post..we always want what we don't have.

  • it's still early. :)
  • no worries. Luke is a very popular gospel during the Christmas season. 😜 #BabyJesusStory
  • Mitch Moreland has a combined 1.6 WAR since the start of 2011 at a premium position (DH/1B). That position needs to produce.
  • definitely don't disagree with that. We will miss his glove. But he had such a quiet bat for someone at first base.
  • I only disliked him when he was at the plate.
