Jalapeno Jack Meatloaf with Creamy Mushroom Sauce

November 1, 2012

Did you guys get any Sandy action this weekend? We did. Wind, rain, and power loss – oh my! Fortunately the Northern, VA area didn’t get hit nearly as hard as NJ and NY, and we only lost power for about a day. With all the wine and snacks we¬†stocked up on before the storm, and full charges on both our iPhones and laptops, it really wasn’t too hard to ride out the storm.

Sure, the heat in our building isn’t on yet, so it was pretty cold during the storm. And, yeah, the cats were acting even crazier than usual. But hey, we had plenty of tender meatloaf, creamy mashed potatoes, and roasted vegetables to fill our bellies and delight our tongues. I’m not even really a meatloaf fan, generally, but I have been loving this one all week — with more potatoes, in sandwiches, on rice…it’s all delicious! Could this be my new favorite comfort food?
