"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Ingredients:  
4 slices white bread, torn into pieces
2 1/2 lb ground beef
1 onion, peeled and cut into 1/8s
2 cloves garlic
2 stalks celery, cut into 2-inch pieces
2 carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces

Directions:
Directions:
Heat the oven to 375 degrees.
Place the bread in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade; pulse until fine crumbs form.
Transfer them to a medium bowl; add the ground beef.
Place the onion pieces, celery pieces, carrot pieces, garlic, and parsley in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade; pulse until fine. (for best results, only fill the food processor bowl halfway up at a time)
Add all the veggies to the meat mixture.
Add the egg, 1/2 cup ketchup, 2 teaspoons dry mustard, salt, and pepper; use your hands or a wooden spoon to combine thoroughly.
Form the meat into a loaf that's slightly smaller than your loaf pan. Place it in an ~8 by ~4 by ~2 inch loaf pan.
Combine the remaining 1/2 cup ketchup, remaining teaspoon dry mustard, and brown sugar in a bowl; stir until smooth.
Brush the mixture over the top of the meatloaf; place in the oven with a baking sheet on the rack below to catch the drippings.
Bale until a meat thermometer inserted in the center reads 160 degrees, about 90 minutes.
If the top starts to get too dark, cover it with foil, and continue baking.
