the best meatloaf evah!


Once upon a time I went to my friend Becca's wedding...and the reception...and after the festivities were over and people were cleaning up, they were just throwing away the lovely napkin I gathered up a bouquet's worth of lovely flower napkin rings and I just love pulling them out to grace my table when I have guests over.


I spent the afternoon preparing the most delicious dinner...check it out over on Dishcraft and see for yourself how I did will thank me...
I personally believe that in order for a meal to be truly appreciated, you have
to use your nice dishes, cloth napkins, pretty napkin rings,
domed glass over desert and a pretty table cloth.
Things just taste better when
you present it well.

The entire menu included:
Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Creamed Spinnach (thanks Christy!)
Salad (thanks Jessi and Sarah!)
and for dessert:
Angel Food cake with Peaches
(the frozen variety that had thawed out on the counter and I had
covered with brown sugar...super yummy and easy)


The dinner got rave reviews! We had such a nice night enjoying each others company
and enjoying the food. My idea of a good time!

Are you kidding me?!! Bacon AND meatloaf in the same very dish?!! I am in love. Both of those are absolute favorites (I'm not ashamed) but I cannot imagine the delicious magic that must happen when the two come together. I just read all about this at Dishcraft and cannot wait to give it a whirl. THANK YOU FOR THIS RECIPE!!!

I absolutely agree Jamie that food is simply enjoyed better when you bring out the fine dining experience and serve it up!!! I LOVE those napkin rings!!!! I can't believe they were throwing them away, I would have done the same and rescue them!! They look so real! mmm.... the recipes sound delicious, may have to whip it up, especially sweet potatoes, love them!! and I know some boys that'll probably LOVE meatloaf esp if it has bacon on top. thanks for sharing sweet hostess!!
