Nicely done, B.T. Ketchup is especially good on hockey pucks that have been brined to help tenderise them a bit, and then cooked on a covered BBQ, low and slow, with lots of maple leaves to produce copious amounts of smoke. This of course is best done in the snow, to help prevent overcooking from too much heat, oh, wait, there's always snow somewhere in the Great White North..

And just what are the hockey pucks of which we speak, anything resembling a flat round disk that is cooked North of the U.S./Canadian border. Sometimes they resemble burgers, sometimes doughnuts, somtimes tournedo, salmon patties, etc., etc. The technique was created as hard rubber wasn't always available for true hockey puck manufacture, especially during WW1, and WW2 when rubber was a rationed material. Our Northern freinds needed something to play hockey with and so created the cullinary version, which if the real thing couldn't be found, the cullinary substitue could be used to replace it. Sadly, all Canadians are taught to cook "hockey pucks" from a very young age and cannot make a tender, round, disklike anything. Even the pancakes are scary.

Ahhhh, just kidding. I know several Canuks that cook just fine, great even. But then again, I dnow a few that make hockey pucks.

Sanosarah; Please don't take offense. I live on the Michigan/Ontario border, way up North here in Sault Ste. Marie, MI. I'm just poking fun at my Northern freinds. The Church I go to was in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario for 15 years, and I have a good many freinds on the Canada side of the river. I really couldn't respect any country or people more than those freinds. But we do occasionally tease each other. I try to do it ins such an outladish way as to make it obvious that I'm jsut poking fun, and expect to get back as good as I give. Guys just seem to do that kind of thing.

So, don't take my last post seriously at all. Know that I truly enjoy Canada, and the U.S. And smile at the silliness. As for Canadian cooking, one of my favorite cooking partners, a man & his wife with whom we share a yearly New Years Eve feast lives in SSM Ont. We honestly get together several times a year and cook up some very good food. He was also my partner for our Church's annual pancake breakfast. And the corn roasts over on St. Joseph's Island, that were another annual event attended by better than a hundred church members every year, were legendary.

Smile and be happy.

Seeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

What would meatloaf be without ketchup?
I've been using the reduced sugar version for awhile now. I also use tomato sauce with a little brown sugar on meat loaf.
Didn't Ronald Reagan back the school lunch programs on counting ketchup as a serving of vegetables? (even though it's a fruit)

Could it become meatloaf with salsa?
