Recently, I was in Florida visiting my big brother, Mike. While I was there, I asked him to show me how to make one of his family's favorite recipes ~ Mike's Classic Meatloaf. It's a comforting & satisfying meal that really has the taste of Mom's homestyle cooking.
The two of us had a great time making the meatloaf. He chopped & diced, while I took pictures.
I mixed it all together & put it in the oven, while he cleaned up the dishes.
About 45 minutes later, we were enjoying thick slices of the flavorful, meaty & veggie packed meatloaf. A traditional ketchup glaze reminded me of the meatloaf I used to eat when I was a kid. Childhood culinary memories came flooding back. Eating food does that to me ~ it has the ability to take me back in time, and that makes me happy. :)
Thanks so much for teaching me one of your recipes, Mike!! Love, your little sister ~ Vicki x/o
