The one thing I never realized would be a perk of going to the gym on a regular basis is I actually come up with my best thoughts while I am on the treadmill. Used to be when I would have to do long drives, like to PA to see my parents, I would do some of my best thinking. Doing a long drive isn’t always happening but hitting the gym 3-4 times a week does.
What do I think about? Well, many things actually. I will think of recipe ideas to just how I can make myself better. It just depends on what is going on in my life at that moment. I guess exercising just makes my head clearer that I can think better.
I remember there was a scene in the movie “First Wives Club” where Goldie Hawn is working out. Bette Midler and Diane Keaton, were trying to figure something out when Bette said to Goldie
Why are you running on that thing? Goldie replies that she does her best thinking when she is exercising, that it helps clear her head from all the booze.
No, I don’t drink a lot of booze that I need exercise to think, but It does help clear your head. I can’t explain why it has to be the endorphins that get released from exercising I guess.
So maybe that scene in The First Wives Club did motivate me to do thinking while I am on the treadmill. I am not afraid to admit yes I do get inspired by movies and TV. I started food blogging many years ago because of the movie Julie and Julia.
Truthfully, it inspired me to do this, plus it, at that time was helping me get through coping with divorce and was the start of me finding Dee again. Don’t get me started about Grey’s Anatomy. All I can say is the commentary at the end of each episode that is said, always inspires me for something that is going on in my life.
I don’t know how, but it does and I had friends say the same thing about that show. You need advice, turn into Grey’s Anatomy. You be surprised how the end of the show will advise you in a way that you need.
Slow Cooker French Onion Meatloaf
So the idea for Slow Cooker French Onion Meatloaf came, in a weird way. I was watching Netflix, and I can not even tell you the movie because it was bad and unforgettable. Anyway, a woman was making actually burgers and she was dunking them into old French Onion soup before she cooked them. The idea French Onion Meatloaf came to me.
Growing up, my mom would make meatloaf in the slow cooker all the time. It cooks it slowly and the meatloaf, to me at least, gives a nice moisture to it that it isn’t dried out.
I love that I can put something into the slow cooker, go about doing other things as it cooks up the meal all day. I can not imagine not having my slow cooker. So making a meatloaf in the slow cooker is a no-brainer for me.
Anyway, I had a thought of, what if you used Campbell’s French Onion Soup, put at the bottom of the slow cooker. Then placed the meatloaf on top of it, and let slow cook all day. The soup would be absorbed into the meat for the French Onion flavor of the meatloaf was my thought.
I have to admit, I really do love meatloaf. In my opinion, this French Onion Meatloaf is my best meatloaf so far. It is so moist and full of flavor. Plus it is so filling.
