Old Fashioned Meatloaf

One of our families favorite meals is Meatloaf with Mac N Cheese or Mashed Potatoes, a green vegetable and a salad. We love the leftovers just as much the next day when we make meatloaf sandwiches. I put Meatloaf on our menu quiet a bite in the fall and winter and sometimes in the summer. I have often times been asked by some of you for my meatloaf recipe. I looked back on my recipe box and I realized that I had never posted the recipe for the meatloaf. I am happy to share the Meatloaf recipe with all of you today and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Herb Garlic Bread

Herb Garlic Bread is a very flavorful bread with a crusty outside and a wonderful soft texture on the inside. It is great to serve with any meal and to use as a base for any appetizer topper. There is nothing better than walking into the door and smelling that wonderful smell of homemade bread baking in the oven. I just love to tap that bread on the crust and hear that sound and know that it will have that crusty crunchy bite. We just love this bread and I sure hope that you will too.
