Is it the weather or the time of year that makes my mouth water for a slice of something as wonderful and tasty as meatloaf? Although meatloaf has it’s American roots in making a portion of ground beef go further and last more than one night, there are usually no left overs in my family on that coveted night, meatloaf night.  Meatloaf has the distinct aroma of “Mom loves me” and was always my first choice of comfort food when I came home from college. Although I have not perfected the meatloaf, I ran across this Brown Sugar Meatloaf recipe on today and now know what Sunday dinner is going to be.
