i have the best job ever as a stay at home mommy to three handsome young men...thanks to my hard working husband! after a full day with my boys (which i love) i can't wait for my hubby to get home so we can all sit around the table for dinner. it's a very special time for our family so i try to keep it fun and unpredictable! that is why i am on a mission to find new recipes, tweak old ones and share them with YOU!

Momma's Meatloaf

this is the meatloaf that i grew up eating.  my husband claims that it is not a meatloaf--he may be right (don't tell him), but it's meatloaf to me.  i especially love it because it is topped with potatoes and carrots, making it a complete meal in one!  enjoy!!

1/2lb. ground beef
1/2lb. ground pork
1 egg
small onion, chopped finely
small can of tomato sauce
saltine crackers, crumbled
salt/pepper, to taste

potatoes, washed (i don't peel ours but you can) and sliced lengthwise (about a quarter of an inch thick)
carrots, washed/peeled and cut and sliced lengthwise

combine all of the ingrediants (except ketchup!) using your hands, making sure to blend it all together well.  press into a casserole dish.  squirt ketchup over the top--i don't cover it completely.  put one layer of potatoes and carrots on top--more than one layer will prevent the potatoes and carrots from cooking all the way through.  cover with foil and bake for 1 1/2-2 hours or until potatoes and carrots are tender.
