I have one child who absolutely loves meatloaf. (One year she even requested it as her special birthday dinner.) Luckily that same child also loves to MAKE meatloaf. I use the word luckily because if it were left up to me, I would never make it. It's not that I'm opposed the delicious loaf of meat, it's simply because I don't like to mix raw meat with my hands. I've tried other methods of combining the meatloaf ingredients but the most effective way by far, is to use your hands to mix everything together. There's just something about cold, raw meat squishing between my fingers that is repulsive to me. Fortunately this is not a genetic trait that was passed down to my daughter because she just loves that job. Squeezing eggs in her palms and squishing raw meat through her fingers is ... somehow stress reducing for her.
