    Annacia's Note:

    You know how it is. Your away from home in a land very different from where you grew up. What is it that you miss the most and long for way down deep? For one such British expat it was simply mom's homemade meatloaf. Type of meat wasn't stated, just "whatever ground meat you can find".

      I used currants in place of raisins and my own homemade ras el hanout. ~Tasty~ wasn't too thrilled with the "stuff" in the meatloaf however. ;) Served over whole wheat couscous and accompanied by lightly steamed broccoli, carrots and cauliflower. I used half ground lamb and half ground beef. Made for NA*ME tag/October.

      We liked this very much! Great flavor; very different. The couscous is a cool idea & works well. Using the 8x8 pan was different as well but worked really well! The chutney was ok. I think it woukd have been better cooked in a wide pan of some sort OR stir almost constantly. The tomatoes on the bottom got really soft while the ones on top were still intact & hard. :( I also think it would work to saute the onions for a couple minutes before adding the rest. I used shallots instead of red onions. I will definitely make this again! Made for NA/ME Tag June 2013.
