Meatloaf

So my husband is a very meat and potatoes kind of guy. I’m Italian and not meat and potatoes. I remember the first time I made him a meatloaf my husband told me it tasted like a meatball more than a meatloaf. After 12 years together I think I have perfected my recipe and come to find out our 2 children LOVE meatloaf too.

So now that I’m the odd ball out I end up making meatloaf more because my family goes crazy over it.

Kale… You hear it everywhere. It is suppose to be a super food. So a few months ago I was wandering around the produce department at my local grocery store and decided to go take a look at it.
I found a very hearty green that was pretty cheep. So even though I had no idea what to do with it or how to cook it I picked up a bunch.

I came home and started looking around the Internet for different ways to cook it and what it went well with.
I found a recipe on FoodandWine.com and decided to take the basic idea and do my own variation.

Here is what you will need… Continue reading
