Food Monday ~ Lemon Meat Loaf

This is a simple tasty dish, for sharing on a cold winter evening.

I had a friend who would ask “What is for dinner?” before choosing the bottle of wine to open for our meal. If I said “Meatloaf” He always replied “Right, a cheap dinner so a cheap bottle of wine!”

The wine was always good, the dinner tasty and the chat interesting.

    It’s awfully quiet around here today, Grannymar

    At least it means the wine will stretch a bit further 😀

    I shall try out this recipe during the week. It looks lovely and easy to do.
