Meatloaf Dinner

Another weekend down... Only two full work weeks until a little Christmas and New Year's time away!

I was nice and lazy this weekend. Friday I spent the evening with friends- hanging around and chatting about life. Call me lame, but it was my kind of night. I would choose a night of lounging on a friends couch (likely not wearing real pants) than a night out at a crowded bar almost any day.

Despite a killer headache for most of the day Saturday I did manage to get my butt to the grocery store and Target... I also made a stop by the brand new CVS that just opened up on the corner near me where I picked up a few make up essentials and some new lip products to test out- maybe I'll tell you about them sometime later this week.

I also cooked myself up a delicious meatloaf dinner which I would love to share with you all today. My mom has been making this recipe for years, and it is just plain yummy. I promise, you will not be disappointed.

1.5lbs 90% lean ground beef (I actually just used 1lb and it worked just fine)
1 cup tomato juice (I use the 8oz cans of Hunts)
3/4 cup Quaker oats
1 egg
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/3 cup ketchup
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons yellow mustard

Heat oven to 350. In large bowl combine all meatloaf ingredients (lightly beat the egg before adding it to the mixture). Once you've got all your meatloaf ingredients in the bowl, get your hands in there and mix it all together. Once mixed, form in to a loaf and place in baking pan (you can also cook this in a loaf pan 8 X 4 will work). In a separate bowl combine your sauce ingredients. Mix together thoroughly then pour over the loaf. Bake for 1 hour. Let stand for about 5 minutes and drain off any juices before serving.

I served mine with roasted asparagus and a baked potato.

Let me know if you guys test this recipe out!
