Since today is my Mom’s 60th birthday I thought I would post about one of her recipes that is my all-time favorite. This recipe for her meatloaf has been around for a long time and I have to say it’s the best I’ve ever had. Meatloaf is one of those things that you have to be leary of eating. Some people just plain don’t know how to make it. I have tried many sub-par meatloafs in my life and I have to say my Mom wins the award for the best. My Mom is one of those people that lives by the motto of ‘use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without’.  She rarely throws anything away. She is the master at seeing what is in her fridge and being able to whip together amazing dishes with random ingredients. I know I got most of my cooking skills and shopping know-how from her. She was an amazing teacher and helped me learn the importance of frugal living and everything prudent. 
 

It is that frugality that makes this meatloaf so wonderful. She would make this every summer when vegetables from the garden were ripe. The chopped carrots, zucchini and peppers is what makes this meatloaf so moist and full of flavor. If your kids don’t like vegetables, I promise they will in this recipe! They won’t even know they are in there. One of the best aspects of her meatloaf is the sauce on top. It is a sweet and tangy barbeque-type sauce that makes every bite so amazing–so much better than plain ketchup or regular bbq sauce.

If you have carrots, zucchini, onions or peppers in your garden, this is the perfect dish for you to make! The best part is, this meatloaf recipe makes two loaf pans of meatloaf. You can either freeze one for another meal or use the second pan for meatloaf sandwiches (our family’s favorite!).
