144.8...Souperior Meatloaf

One of my favorite meals growing up was my mom’s meatloaf. Of course my brother didn’t like it because we couldn’t agree on anything. Except Denny’s. We both liked going to Denny’s. Go figure. Funny thing is that it’s just the recipe on the back of the Lipton Onion Soup Mix box.  Anytime my mom would announce that we were having meatloaf for dinner, I would jump up and down while listening to my brother’s groans of despair. 

Last night I had the immense desire to relive those memories so I whipped up my mom’s meatloaf. I smiled with each bite. I think I could hear my brother groan somewhere….

This morning I went to a meeting at the school, followed by parent teacher conferences. I ran some errands and stopped at Wahoo’s for lunch. I had two “skinny” fish tacos. Old school lunch!

  1. My Mom used to make open face white bread sandwiches with cooked bacon and melted mozzarella cheese - I am confident she made that because that's all she had in the house, I don't remember it being served with a veggie or fruit or anything - but it was so good!

    My mom used to make something similar but it was cheddar cheese melted over bacon and tomato slices on white toasted bread! Yum!
