Eating In Tonight

A good country meal...Meatloaf, Squash, Green Beans, Cantaloupe and Cornbread. It's the kind of meal you could go back for more helpings.

The meatloaf recipe came from The General Foods Kitchens Cookbook that I have had since the '60's.

Onion Meat Loaf

1 Cup soft bread crumbs
1 egg, slightly beaten
3/4 Cup minced onions
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 TBS chopped parsley
1/2 Cup grated carrot
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
2-6oz cans tomato juice...I use one plain and one Hot 'n Spicy
2 strips bacon

We use a mix for the cornbread-Martha White's Cotton Country Buttermilk Cornbread Mix.  The squash is simmered w/onion in a saucepan with a little water until tender.  The green beans are Del Monte whole green beans boiled, then simmered, with 1 tsp. of salt for 30 minutes (they taste like home grown to us). 

Bon Appetit!
