When the weather is colder, we usually look to warm comfort foods. Just because we were raised with processed foods, doesn’t mean that our comfort foods need to be processed:)
I know that when I was growing up, our meatloaf had tons of crushed crackers, onion soup mix (with a lot of sodium and chemicals in it) tomato soup and ketchup. This meatloaf is packed with extra veggies, so it’s healthified (is that even a word?) . Just remember that it still tastes great and is very satisfying!
