Meat loaf always gets a bad rep, but these cutely presented meat loaves always were a hit at my house growing up! My mom would make them all the time!
I’m so glad that I’m able to share these will you. It certainly brings me back to my childhood.
Speaking of childhood. Today is Liam’s 2 month doctor’s appointment. His pediatrician warned me at his last appointment that there is a national shortage of one of the combination shots. This shot is a 3 shots rolled into one, meaning with the combo shot, he’d only have to have 6 shots. But, if the doctor doesn’t have the combo, he’ll have to have 8.
I’m crying just thinking about my poor baby being poked so much. I know he won’t remember it, but I sure will. I don’t like seeing those alligator tears. Any words of wisdom for a mommy? This is the first time I’ll have seen him get a shot. Boo.
Anyway. Enough bummer news. Onward to this great meal. I think it’s just the comfort food that we’ll be needing tonight!
