What the fudge is up with moths invading my household? Is it “when spring has sprung, the moths will come” season? I don’t get it. But I hate it. I turn on my lamp on night to read my book and a swarm of them (meaning two) fly at the light like they are seizing. So rude. I’m trying to read my book on a Saturday night at 9pm, and these moths are acting like the own the place. And then they are seizing so much, they hit me in the face and proceed on to hit every other wall, object, and light around every room. Is that why they die? Because they give themselves so many concussions? Do I just sound like a complete idiot throughout this entire paragraph? I’ll move on. You suck moths.

So now that I’ve cursed the day a moth was born, I’m sure you’re wondering what I was reading on a Saturday night. No? Cool. Whatever. I’ll tell you anyways. I was reading the second book of the Hunger Games trilogy, “Catching Fire” and seriously could not put it down. I read it Friday night, Saturday night, and Sunday morning and afternoon. All done with it now. It.Was.Awesome. Every single chapter was great. If you disagree, I curse the day you were born. Jesus, I’m kidding. Don’t leave my website. Is it weird I’m excited for Regionals to be over just so I can start the third book and have more time to commit to it? Totes weird. At least I’m committing myself to something since I can’t seem to make a commitment to any human being. Kidding again. My roommate Laura and I are committed to each other. Roommate for life.

Guess what? I’m super excited. My girlfriend Sam comes into town tomorrow and is staying with me over Regionals weekend! YAY! I’m even cleaning the house for her. Like vacuuming our carpet and sweeping the floors. I’m even going to scrub the shower. Big things going on here in the tres amigas household. I just made that up. And it was stupid. Sorry guys. Disappoint is on your face, I’m sure of it.

    I absolutely love this recipe, and it’s so simple! I left out the eggs by accident (whoops), and it still turned out well! This has definitely become a go-to recipe. So glad I found your blog a while ago!

    Hi Juli! I’m new to the Paleo world but your blog and recipes will make it an easy transition for sure! I’m planning on making the chicken basil meatloaf tonight but was wondering how well one would freeze? Thanks!

    1. juli says:

      not sure because i haven’t tried it but i’m sure it would freeze fine

    I tried this last night. I used ground turkey instead of chicken. My oldest had a second helping and said “Mom, this is really good.” My youngest also liked it and followed up the following morning with “Mom, I really liked that meatloaf last night.” How often does this happen???

  4. Felicia says:

    Delish! Your recipes never disappoint.

  5. Tiffany says:

      cayenne pepper or smoked paprika

    I just made this recipe last night and it was incredibly easy and delicious. I halfed the recipe and made two changes – added green jalapeno pepper sauce and as others have mentioned, red pepper powder. I served it with a salad. Great mid week meal that didn’t take much time at all. Thanks for the great recipe! I really enjoy your blog and creations.

    Hi, my daughter has nut allergies, what would you suggest substituting the almond flour with and how much? Thank you.

    1. juli says:

      this recipe is a bit hard to change

  8. Maria says:

    I made this recipe last night and i added some marinara sauce to the mixture and put some extra sauce on top along with some shredded rice cheese. Now I have some left for lunches and one in the freezer. Thanks for sharing!

    Found this recipe today and made it tonight. It’s very basic and simple. I can see it taking me in many different directions, depending on the mood and what’s on hand to add. Dried cranberries would probably work well in it. Cheese is another possibility since we’re not totally non-dairy. Pine nuts come to mind, too. Thanks! We enjoyed it!
