Once upon a time, a recipe for “Broccoli and Cheese Meatloaf” came up in Lovely Samantha’s facebook stream.
“Oh! This looks delicious,” said the Lovely Samantha. “I think I will make this for dinner tomorrow.” She did and it was delicious. It was also a hit with Prince Charming and the Minions.
A few months later, The Lovely Samantha decided to make it again. Samantha had all the ingredients on hand, so nothing had to be bought. She moved the broccoli and beef to the fridge to thaw.
The following evening, after a long half-day of work and an afternoon of singing to woodland animals, The Lovely Samantha was very tired. She was glad that dinner had already been planned and looked forward to the savory meatloaf she remembered.
Lovely Samantha took our her favorite cast iron skillet and started browning the beef. She added the browned beef to the other ingredients in a large kitchen bowl.
It was about half way through this step when Lovely Samantha realized YOU DON’T BROWN BEEF FOR MEATLOAF!!! Great Galloping GRAVY!!
The Lovely Samantha inadvertently spoke a spell with a lot of four-letter words and transformed herself into EVIL KITCHEN WITCH.
Evil Kitchen Witch decided to pretend she MEANT to brown the beef. She added different ingredients and cursed her family with BROCCOLI AND CHEESE CASSEROLE.
Much to Evil Kitchen Witch’s dismay, the family loved the casserole. Minion #1 declared it better than the meatloaf.
Evil Kitchen Witch was so happy, she turned back into The Lovely Samantha and lived happily ever after until the next time she cooked.
Here are both recipes so you too can have a magical meatloafy or magical casseroley dinner:
