What time is dinner at your house?????

Sugar Boogers & Tantrums said...

yum! The meatloaf sounds good.

Katherine Aucoin said...

I haven't made meatloaf in quite some time. It sure sounds good!

Kathy B! said...

I'll be over at 6:00! That sounds great.

I usually use barbecue sauce in my meatloaf, but I like the combo of worcestershire and the red pepper flakes. I'm going to have to try it your way.

Karen said...

Sounds like fun. I don't do menu planning since a) it's just me and b) I usually only have enough time to run through a drive through on my way from work to some meeting or another!

Shannon said...

OK, I have a yummy meatloaf recipe (if I do say so, myself)... but yours, with its Italian breadcrumbs, garlic and Parmesan... oooo, this sounds good! I'll have to give it a try!

Amy said...

My husband will not enjoy meat loaf. I do not know why he will not eat it. He is a meat man?

Momisodes said...

What a coincidence! We're having meatloaf tonight,too :)

This recipe sounds wonderful.

Thanks so much - I was trying to decide what to do for dinner as I've been busy cleaning and organizing all day. Spaghetti - great idea!

Thanks for the recipe. I'm not a big meatloaf fan but I think I'll make this recipe tomorrow night with the ground turkey I have in the fridge.

Veggie Mom said...

Thanks for the recipe...we DO love meatloaf over here!

Im not usually a meatloaf kinda person, but that sounds tasty!

Yum! I make an Italian meatloaf but it is a little different. I would have to give this one a try. YUM!

I LOVE Meatloaf with mashed potatoes, corn and gravy. No one else in my family likes meatloaf - they're aliens.
