So the other day I faced my fears (Halloween humor) and went on Facebook to make my Rat Loaf Meatloaf LIVE, from my Kudos Kitchen.
Unfortunately, FB live was very temperamental and kept freezing up and turning off on me while I was making the video. So instead of this being one long video, from start to finish, it’s cut up into 6 smaller, separate videos. Thanks, Facebook! Not.
However, this may have proven to be a blessing in disguise when it comes to adding these videos to my blog. Since the clips are short and more manageable, I can speak to what’s in each clip and give you a little play by play, making each clip smaller in size, and not so scary!
This live video and my original idea for Rat Loaf Meatloaf is actually a recipe redo from the one I posted to my blog back in October of 2013. Now you may wonder what a nice girl like me is doing making a grotesque Halloween dinner like this. Sadly, I have no answer for you that makes any sense except for the fact that I found it funny when I first made him, and I find it just as funny now. Hence the Rat Loaf Meatloaf Live video I shared on Facebook.
I had a blast making this video even though I was really nervous going live. Luckily for me, I had my husband close by to help lend me the moral support I needed, and so I felt more comfortable in front of the camera. As you can tell from this first clip, I was still pretty nervous. If the volume doesn’t work for you, don’t forget to hit the volume level in the bottom right-hand corner of each video clip.
Another thing I really loved about making this Rat Loaf Meatloaf Live video is that I got to stage my Kudos Kitchen with all sorts of fun and spooky Halloween props. I knew having these items would add to the ambiance of the video, as well as keep my nerves down a touch. The one thing that didn’t help keep my nerves down was the video continually stopping and cutting out on me. Each time it did, it felt like I was starting from scratch and I worried I was losing my live viewers on the other end. Luckily, that didn’t seem to happen.
Even though I’ve made a monster size rat loaf meatloaf, please feel free to make your rat loaf smaller if needed. Also, you can use whatever family favorite meatloaf recipe you have. If you’d like the recipe I used on my original rat loaf post, please click HERE. It was so nice to have my husband close by so I could say hello to all my Facebook friends who stopped in to say hello as I was live. It meant a great deal to me!!
HaHaHa! Look at that face. I’m not quite sure what was happening in this next video, but it sure is appropriate! Another thing I loved about making this Rat Loaf Meatloaf Live on Facebook video is that I got to introduce our three dogs during filming. It was so much fun for me to show them (as well as my husband) off on camera!
As with everything, it’s the final touches that take a project (food or otherwise) over the top and special. With black olive eyes and a nose, almond teeth, potato ears, and spaghetti whiskers this Rat Loaf Meatloaf is ready to go into the oven.
Even though the insides of my Rat Loaf Meatloaf Live Facebook video didn’t ooze like I had hoped he was going to, YOURS WILL!
After all, what good is a grotesque Halloween dinner if you’re not able to creep out your family and friends?!!
