” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

 

====================

Meatloaf is a way to extend  the amount of beef you bought -and it can be quite delicious!

My mothers recipe had ground beef, green  peppers, onion, eggs, bread (torn up) salt, pepper and  tomato paste – put together and cookat 350 – 45 minutes!

ooola la a meal in one, but always serve with mashed potatoes and a side of corn or mac and cheese nda side of green beans!

 

The perfect comfort food and healthy too!!

Relax media fruitcakes the world is not coming to an end because President Trump is in the Whitehouse. Bake up some meatloak and have a singapore sling!!
