Personal Notes:
When Lynn and I were first married I never made meatloaf because, quite frankly, I never like the meatloaf I had when I was growing up and didn't know there was any other way to make it that would be much different. He often asked how come I never made meatloaf and finally I told him I just didn't like it. He convinced me that I would like it if I made it how his mom made it. (Is this a cliche newlywed story, or what?) So, not really convinced, I called his mom, got her recipe and have been making my family happy with it ever since. What do ya know? Meatloaf can be an anticipated meal rather than a dreaded one.
