My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Simple Meatloaf

We all have our favorite meatloaf recipe. I have several. This is the one that I like to keep frozen for that emergency meal or better yet, sliced, frozen and ready for an emergency meatloaf sandwich. When that craving for a meatloaf sandwich comes on you don't have time to make a meatloaf, especially in the middle of the night. Plop a slice in the micro on defrost for a minute or so and you are on your way to sandwich land. This is just a wonderful thing.

Simple Meatloaf
about 6 servings
print recipe

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
3/4 cup quick-cooking oats, not instant
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon yellow mustard

Combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl just until blended; place in a lightly greased 9x5-inch loaf pan.

Stir together ketchup, brown sugar and mustard; our evenly over meatloaf.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Remove from oven; let stand 5 minutes, and remove from pan before slicing.

You will thank me every time you have a sandwich, especially around midnight.
