Tasty Tuesday -- A side of Meat

There is nothing better than a meal shared with my husband. With our four children, two on each side, seperating us, he still takes the time to give me the eye and make jokes only I will understand. He is one prime cut.

It's in the eyes...see it?

Nobody makes Meatloaf anymore [no one listens to Meatloaf, either, but I, for one, Love Both].

  1. 2 lbs ground beef
  2. one packet dried onion soup
  3. 1/2 c bread crumbs
  4. 1/4 c parmesan cheese
  5. 2-3 Tbs Worsteshire Sauce
  6. 3/4 c water
  7. 1 egg
  8. salt and pepper

combine all ingredients and mix -- hand mixer or kneading it

Press firmly into loaf pan and cook.

Um... 375 for about 45 minutes to an hour. LOL truly. don't be afraid. The temp is a good one, it's the time that may vary depending on your stove, your location... or your taste preference.

Pull loaf from pan when done cooking so it doesn't sit in the fat.

Slice and serve.

If I have onions on hand I'll chop one and add it. Basically, I like to wing it. Please don't kill your meatloaf with catsup. If there's anything I've learned as a wife and mother, it's to go easy on the catsup in meatloaf and the butter in mashed potatoes. No matter how much you put in, everyone is going to add more once it's on their plate...lots more. :D Hope you enjoy. Hope I didn't forget anything either.

If you don't eat your meat, you can't have any pudding. How can you have your pudding if you don't eat your meat?!
