My 6 year old is sick with strep throat...He requested meatloaf and Kraft mac and cheese for dinner.... sigh... I hate mac and cheese out of a box ...so I had to "doctor" it up so that I could eat it... so bear with me.. this is my "doctored" up version. I so would of rather had mashed potatoes with this... so much better This meatloaf is a new variation that I came up with out of boredom with my regular meatloaf.... it turned out great... you could really taste the tomato paste & red wine... yummy and moist...I also made carrot & raisin salad with mandarin oranges, **note....see my previous blog for that recipe, but alas couldn't get the 6 year old to eat that... throat too sore... but hey now... I tried getting more veggies & fruit in him.. maybe next time.... Enjoy
