Simple, Scrumptious Meatloaf

Rule #228: Meatloaf isn’t sexy, but it is delicious.

I’ve wanted to post this recipe for YEARS, but I’ve never been able to snag a good photo. The pics you see are, sadly, the best I could get. They don’t do this homestyle, comforting, take-you-back-to-Mama’s-house recipe justice. I love this meatloaf because it’s simple, scrumptious, and doesn’t have any sauce on top. Now, no offense to you top-saucer-folks. Everyone does meatloaf differently. I just happen to love this version most of all!

Beef Bourguignon

Rule #91: Beef B. by D. is the way to roll.

Translation: Beef Bourguignon by Daddy is the way to roll. Julia Childs has the ultimate “impress the in-laws” type recipe, but this one is meant for the every day folks who want to get something yummy on the table without having to invoke a famous chef from the past. My dad would make this on a lazy Sunday when we were all just hanging around the house. The smells are one of those food memories that will always have a special place in my heart.
