This comes from my grandmother's shoebox of recipes -- and it is good! Perfect in the winter with a nice green salad and plenty of crusty bread. This makes a huge pot -- I usually freeze some to have on hand for a quick dinner. I have also added leftover corn or green beans to this and it is still fabulous. It is not a lot of work -- just the simmering takes some time. But it is worth it.
A co-worker brought this into a work luncheon and I begged her for the recipe after tasting it. She drizzled the slices with an orange syrup, but she didn't give me that recipe. I think it could be made by combing 2 tbsp of orange juice with enough powdered sugar to make a drizzable icing.
Can you stand another meatloaf recipe? I saw this being made on a tv show -- but was vacuuming and didn't catch all the ingredients. So, I adapted my own (rather, my mother's) recipe and came up with this. My husband will not eat meatloaf any other way!
Found in my grandmother's shoebox of clipped recipes. She had a number of vegetable "bakes" -- all a little faded and some with handwritten notes. This one had "Peggy's favorite!" written across the bottom. I have no idea who Peggy is or was -- but she evidently really liked this one.
