Everything old is new again: Meatloaf

It's Mr Busy's fault doing.  He requested meatloaf a couple of weeks ago and now we're all a bit hooked.  It's on the menu plan at least twice a month.  Old fashioned?  Yes!  Delicious?  You bet!

A way, way back in 2010 I posted this recipe for Savoury Glazed Meatloaf.  It came from a friend's Mum - one of those old-fashioned country women whose kitchen turns out all manner of really good honest food.  It's the recipe I still use now and I always add the grated carrot, which I saute with the onion.

Miss Mischief was having a go at making the recipe the other day and I couldn't be bothered with the finickity baking instructions, so I had her put it in a silicon form loaf pan and leave it to bake right side up.  You know what?  It was about the best meatloaf I've ever had.  The silicon form must have made quite the difference.  Or maybe it was just that I didn't make it?  We still baked it for half the time before adding the sauce stuff on top and now the silicon form is our cooking method of choice.

I find other people's cooking especially delicious--especially if I'm sitting on the couch with a book and a cup of tea while they're in the kitchen making dinner!

I'm making this tonight Tracy!! Also, have you ever made the gluten free chocolate cake made with kidney beans? My friend at work brought one in and honestly, it tasted exactly like a normal cake!!

I'd never heard of it til this moment. I don't eat cake very much because of my reaction to sugar, but a bite of that one sounds very interesting.
