:eek: So if your area is like my area post "Oh, my goodness where in the heck'ola did all this snow and cold come from? And thank goodness it's finally gone!!". In Texas we had record breaking temperatures both with the degrees and how long it was cold which gravely effected out power grid thus affecting the water supply in most areas. With that said most of Texas' water is under a boil which means most restaurants are closed which means guess who's cooking at home?? That's not really a big deal for me because I like to cook and we seldom eat out (like maybe once a month or so). Anyway, I found this meatloaf recipe on-line and tried it today and it was REALLY good!! Thought I'd share it in case you're looking to up your meatloaf game. Yep, this is where our newsletter has gone....I'm just sharing recipes now. Please feel free to let me know any topics you would like me to research or who knows next week you'll learning to darn socks.

Did you know that meatloaf first become popular in the United States during the Great Depression? Made to stretch your dollar, this inexpensive meal made from hamburger has turned into a favorite family meal across the states. While some meatloaf recipes call for a "frosting" of mashed potatoes, brown gravy, or bbq sauce, it seems that the users of Pinterest have spoken: great meatloaf is best served with a tangy and sweet ketchup-based sauce. This is real comfort food here.
Megan of Pip and Ebby currently holds the recipe for the best meatloaf recipe on Pinterest.

  • 2 lbs ground beef or ground turkey
  • 1 cup Ritz crackers crushed
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup onion finely chopped (or 1 Tbsp dried minced onion)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup apricot preserves
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Reserve the remainder of the sauce for dipping/topping. Let meatloaf sit for 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
