Easy Meatloaf Recipe & a normal day

Sam and I met a friend and her son at the Upper St. Clair park this morning.  They played and played and I thought that would result in a good nap.  Wrong.  Just an hour.  Oh well.

After nap, we went out and bought a new baby pool because the last one got a hole.

Then we went on a walk.  Sam was pants-less.  We were supposed to be just hanging out in the yard waiting for Aaron but Sam wanted to walk down the street.

26 weeks pregnant now!

For dinner, I made meatloaf and roasted eggplant.  The meatloaf was good but took over an hour to cook when the recipe said 45 minutes.  I think it took so long because I doubled it and I was also roasting the eggplant at the same time.  Here’s the recipe if you’re interested.  It did turn out quite well and was easy.  I doubled it to make two loaves.

Meatloaf Recipe

(adapted from Cooking with Trader Joe’s cookbook)

  • 1 lb 94% lean ground beef
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp yellow mustard

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix beef, egg, oats, onion, chicken broth, Italian seasoning and salt until well combined.  Shape the mixture into a loaf on an oiled baking sheet or a loaf pan.  Mix ketchup, brown sugar and mustard.  Spread evenly over the top of the meatloaf.  Bake for 45-60 minutes or until no longer pink inside.
