I'm sure Beaver and Wally made it home for dinner every night to watch dear old mom cook this up in a prom dress and pearls. You too can impress your family with a tasty and hearty meal. Just ask Ward!

This was very good. I am not much of a meatloaf person, but I wouldn't have turned away seconds of this one. :) DH liked it too. I served it with baked potatoes and cantaloupe. I took Lisa Gardner's idea and substituted tomato paste and water for the tomato soup. I skipped the Worcestershire sauce altogether as we never have any. Thanks for posting, and I love it's name!
