I know people have good reasons for being vegetarian…but it’s not something I think I ever want to do.

I just enjoy the flavor of a good cut of meat – there’s so much you can do with meat, and there are so many varieties. I was recently sent a sampling of different meats from D’Artagnan Foods, a company that sells fresh, healthy meats. They have so many yummy cuts of meat – some that I’ve never even heard of (and when you order using Ebates, you can even get 3.5% cash back.)

I’ve really enjoyed sampling the meats we were sent – and I was particularly excited about the ground buffalo. I’ve had buffalo in the past, and it’s always a treat. I feel like it is more flavorful and moist than ground beef, and it’s just so delicious. Forrest and I decided to make a “fancy” meat loaf recipe using the ground buffalo meat that we were sent.

Now, this is a little bit different than traditional meatloaf, because it doesn’t have a tomato-y sauce on top. I also used evaporated milk instead of whole milk, and I threw in some pesto as well.

It turned out so delicious though. It was very moist, and the flavor was delicious. I used a meatloaf seasoning packet from Healthy Solutions, and it was SO good! At the last minute, I threw in some pesto just for an added twist, and it turned out to be a great idea.
