Meat Loaf From 'Lighten Up, America!'

Of all the recipes in Allison Fishman Task's new cookbook, Lighten Up, America!, her healthier meatloaf was one of the most intriguing. She lightens the loaf in a few ways: first she uses ground sirloin mixed with veal and pork for a leaner meat blend, next she adds whole grain oats instead of bread to bulk out the meat, and then she stirs in a box of wilted baby spinach for color and extra nutrition.

A Sandwich a Day: Meatloaf Sandwich at Fatted Calf in San Francisco

To be clear, this isn't a deconstructed meatloaf-like patty between two slices of bread. It's an actual slice of meatloaf. The meatloaf is delicious, as one taste of any other meat product at Fatted Calf could have supported. Made from a combination of ground beef, pork, and bacon that's been cured in-house, the loaf is well seasoned with herbs, onions, and carrots. More

Grilling: Planked Meatloaf

The plank served mainly as a way to grill the meatloaf but the wood imparts a nice smokiness to the meatloaf. It's filled with even more flavor from the herb stuffing and a barbecue sauce glaze. More

Dinner Tonight: Spanish-Style Meatloaf

Rather than beef, this recipe calls for ground pork or turkey, along with a healthy dose of smoked paprika, parboiled potatoes (kind of like a Spanish tortilla), and Manchego cheese.

Video: Jeanne Dielman Making Meatloaf

The 1975 film Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles by Belgian filmmaker Chantal Akerman follows the rote daily routine of single mother Jeanne Dielman over three days, with a focus on housework. Naturally, that includes a significant amount of food preparation. Not having seen the movie, I'm taking the New York Times movie critic Vincent Canby's word for it: It's also not a movie to see on an empty stomach. At various points in the film the camera watches Jeanne as she cooks. Without cutting away or using any other ellipses, the movie attends to Jeanne's cooking as if it were a documentary, showing us how she prepares, among other things, what seems to be a succulent...
