That's What Christmas Means to Me My Love

Ground Chicken Meatloaf.  To the chicken I added frozen spinach thawed and well squeezed out, about a 1/3 cup of oatmeal, carrots, grated onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, s & p.  And I added one egg for binding. They say to barely mix your meatloaf otherwise it will be tough.
For the top I just put seasoned tomato paste and baked it for about 30 minutes on 325.
I made it in a cake pan for a hunkier serving.  This was a winner as far as easy meatloaves go.  And considering it was a week before Christmas when my mental state is usually foggy and depressive at best. 

As in every year December hits and then it zooms like a blurry comet until Christmas day and it all just happens.  I never feel I am able to really be present for the whole affair where my mind, body and spirit are all in the same room at the same time.  But each year I try a little harder because if you can crawl out of the fog of shopping and gift-giving pressures and that sinking feeling that you suck as a daughter, sister, friend or partner, then you can begin really getting into that Holiday spirit!  It's a blessed event and it's a shame all of this mental clutter has to come with it.  I will die trying to rid myself of this muckedy-muck during this most special time of year.
