*BbQ mEaTlOaF & cOrNbReAd*

My mom has a great meatloaf recipe, but I saw this one online & just had to try it! And I'm soooooooo glad I did! Whenever my mom made meatloaf, it was on a Sunday, so I stuck with tradition - for some reason its just one of those perfect Sunday dinners, you know?! It went perfect with Dick's mom Liz's cornbread recipe, too. When we got married, Liz gave me an entire binder full of her recipes (LOVE IT!), and this is one that I always go back to. Its super sweet! This was the first time that I made it with whole wheat pancake mix, and it was better than ever! So yeah, this meatloaf is jam-packed full of flavor & is incredibly moist - just the way a meatloaf should be (nothing is worse than a dry one!). I've got a bunch of leftover Neely's bbq sauce, which we love, so that's just another perk of this dinner. Try it next Sunday - you know you want to!
