Ketchup Is Good

by HEAB on November 4, 2010

Although CD and I are still on our mustard kick, yesterday I was in more of a ketchup kind of mood…


Roasted kabocha squash served with homemade cocktail sauce (ketchup + horseradish)

Nicole sent me a tweet recommending the above combo. Nicole, it was delicious – thank you!

Dinner involved ketchup as well…

Do you like my colorful picture? A reader emailed over the weekend to inform me that my photos are basically all the same color and remind him/her of dog barf. Said reader then went on to recommend I add some kind of contrasting colors in my photos. So reader, how about some polka dots to liven up my dog barf balls? 😉

Meatballs were delicious and inspired by Polly’s Pumpkin Meatloaf.


1 pound grass fed beef

1/4 cup ketchup

1/4 cup canned pumpkin

1 to 2 ounces crumbled goat cheese

1/4 onion chopped

2 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp garlic powder

salt and pepper to taste


Pre-heat oven to 350℉. Combine all ingredients, roll into meatballs, and bake in a greased glass baking dish for 55 minutes.

Yesterday was not one of the best days of my pregnancy, and I stayed in bed all afternoon. However, at 5 PM, I got a second wind, walked the dogs for an hour, cleaned up the kitchen, did laundry, and made dinner. I think my body just needed some rest. The HEABlet then proceeded to kick and hiccup for hours. I’m not sure if she really enjoyed the meatballs or was just knocking to get out. Hope she joins us soon. 😉
