Warhol's Influence Shown at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC + Juicy Turkey Meatloaf

Warhol "Jackie Portrait" & Alex Katz "Portrait of Lita" 

ART:
Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years
at the Met, NYC.
Through Decrmber 31, 2012


For decades, critics have observed that Andy Warhol exerted an enormous impact on contemporary art, but until now, no exhibition has explored the full nature or extent of that influence. The Met is now showing approximately forty-five works by Warhol alongside one hundred works by sixty other artists in their Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years. The exhibition juxtaposes prime examples of Warhol's paintings, sculpture, and films with those by other artists who in some way have reinterpreted, responded to, or reacted to his work. The exhibition that emerges is a fascinating dialogue between artworks and artists, across several generations.

FOOD

Leave Some for ME!  
Turkey Meatloaf


INGREDIENTS
1 package of ground turkey (1.25 lbs, no more than 2 lbs)
1 cup of fresh bread crumbs chopped in a food processor
1/2 large onion diced or 1 small onion diced
1 small can of tomato paste mixed with 1 can water  
1 egg beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Special Sauce

DIRECTIONS
Pre-heat oven to 350*
Delute the Tomato Paste with 1 can water, blend into smooth sauce (reserve 1/4 of mix for sauce)
Mix ingredients together well.
Form into a loaf in the center of a 9" x 12" baking dish
Pour all of the Special Sauce over the meat loaf
Bake for 1 1/4 hours, taking the dish out to baste half way through
Remove dish from oven, baste thoroughly

Serve in slices, warm, at room temp or cold, with sauce ladled onto each slice.

SPECIAL SAUCE
reserved tomato sauce
1cup water
2Tbsp liquid yellow mustard
2 Tbsp white vinegar
2 Tbsp brown sugar or molasses

Combine all ingredients, mix well
Pour over, to cover, meat loaf in baking dish

The dish will be soft immediately out of the oven but will firm up as it cools.
It is the most moist and loose while hot - I think it is best fresh and warm, but it is good at every stage.
