A Simple Tasty Meatloaf

Pictures of my pantry are coming soon.  I'm just not finished yet.  I did not think I would have trouble finishing these projects in one day but several of them have carried over.  My new attitude I'm trying out is to be happy with whatever I can manage to get done and be thankful for it.  It's taking some getting used to.  I like to be a finisher.  

For today, I have the easiest {very yummy} meatloaf recipe for you.  My family loves this - and I bet yours will too.  When I want to score some extra mommy points, I make this.  Meatloaf and mashed potatoes must go together, according to my family.  I usually add a vegetable (peas or green beans or carrots or whatever) and some yeast rolls.  

Would you believe I doubled this recipe the last time I made it?  That's a three pound loaf of meat!  We also peeled an entire five pound bag of potatoes for the mashed potatoes.  There was maybe a small serving of each leftover.  It's crazy how much we're eating around here! 

Tasty Meatloaf

1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 egg
1 onion, chopped
1 cup milk
1 cup dried bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
1/3 cup ketchup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  

In a large bowl combine the beef, egg, onion, milk, and bread crumbs.  Season with salt and pepper to taste and place in a lightly greased loaf pan or 9x13 baking dish.  

In a separate small bowl combine the brown sugar, mustard and ketchup.  Mix well and pour over the meatloaf.  

Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.  

I hope you enjoy a cozy weekend with your family!  I will {hopefully} meet you back here on Monday.   :)

If all goes well, here's what I've got planned for next week:
