The Case of the Star-Crossed Meat Loaf

As I posted previously (in a comment), we had planned to have a meatloaf that my hubby's mom made for dinner. But come dinnertime, it still needed to cook some. So, we had to run and and get a replacement main dish -- a burger for him, chicken for me.

The plan was to have the meatloaf tonight.

But when I opened the fridge with plans of reheating it, I couldn't find it.

Aha moment, and I open the oven door. There's last night's meatloaf still sitting there, looking putrefied and unappetizing.

So again we're faced with the dilemma of what to have for dinner. I don't have any other meat frozen, and we don't have any leftovers or frozen pizzas or any other quick-cook foods. So, it looks like we'll be going out or ordering in.

What do you do when your dinner plans fall apart at the last minute?

I'd love for you to share your quick and delicious recipes for dinners when you don't have any meat thawed and time is short.

By the way, we're never having meatloaf again.
