Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Ultimately the credit for this recipe should be my grandmother, Nora Frerking. While my mom, Elda Rist made the same meatloaf I can't ever recall her making the gravy to go with it. That was all Grandma. Add mashed potatoes and green beans and you have a meal that we would, and have, requested upon returning from vacation. Good home cooking, you can't replace it. - Teri
