The Power Of Mom's Meatloaf

The power of Mom's meatloaf.....it can almost turn a vegetarian away from her vegetarian ways, just by looking at it.

All I did was ask my daughter to check on it as it was baking; how did it look?

Delicious, she replied.

This warmed my Mom heart to know that while she has turned away from her meat eating ways, it is not because I made disgusting food.

She's said  no thanks to bacon without a quiver.  She's passed fried chicken without a second of longing.  She's cooking with tofu and loving it.

But the sight of my meatloaf gave her pause.  Ah, the power of  Mom's meatloaf!


  1. Did she eat it? You know you could make it with "meatless" crumbles. I used them for tacos once. :)

    1. Nope, she resisted. Although she said I was the devil for making it!

  2. There is indeed something magical about mom's meatloaf :)

  3. Mmmmm can I have some, you make it sound delicious!! Unfortunately I did most of the cooking as soon as I was able, however there is still one dish that my mum makes better than I ever could.

  4. Meatloaf is the ultimate comfort food!

  5. Mmmm. Meatloaf sounds pretty good. I do think my downfall, were I to try to go vegetarian, would absolutely be bacon. My niece has been vegetarian for almost ten years and STILL talks about how much she misses bacon.

  6. Are you going to print the recipe? I never have luck w/ meatloaf and would love to find a winning recipe!
