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….

1/3 cup ketchup

I enjoyed my meatloaf with roasted asparagus and a salad.
Lunch yesterday was tuna salad and celery sticks.
This morning’s breakfast was a toasted English muffin with peanut butter.
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!
