Turkey Meatloaf Italian Recipe
My Favorite Childhood Comfort Food
This has to be my hands down favorite comfort food from when I was a child . My grandmother had a saying that if you can cook , it does not matter how or what it is you will make it taste good . love my grandmother and her logic about food and cooking it . She is the type that if she is serving you a plate of food and she asked you is this enough ? She would put an extra spoon full to make sure it is enough . These are the memories that make me smile even writing this blog about meatloaf,ain’t it funny . Inspiration strikes at the most craziest times for me and my favorite thing to do is take my families old school recipes and give them a healthy shine to them . Heck I have even been known to take on the challenge of baking and came out with some amazing cakes and pies that are always a hit at thanksgiving to . Please remind me of those later on if you enjoy these recipes as much as I love sharing them .
Sharing Is caring
What started out as a challenge has now become a labor of love and an outlet for all my mad scientist recipes.I can tell you for a fact that as dinner cooked in the oven tonight and the smell filled the whole house and my friends were texting me because you can actually smell my food down the block .Yes my friends have said it to me and we often have a mommy’s wine and eat night because I end up making to much just for my family .Then we all try to out do each other which in turn becomes a fun competition for us wives and our husbands well they get to enjoy all the good food and all the beer they can handle . lets face it guys are pretty much happy as long as the food is good and they get sleepy . My grandmother always said that is how you can tell when the food was good . You get so sleepy that after you eat you need a nap.
