I can’t believe it’s already Sunday!

Yesterday seemed to fly by so fast!  

Hubby and I had our first ‘day’ date in a very long time! We had an awesome day filled with food and plenty of laughter.

This morning we woke up and starting preparing a birthday brunch for Hubby’s son.  His golden birthday is tomorrow, and since he has to work, we thought we make him a special meal to get his day started.  We had homemade blueberry waffles and bacon and sausage. *** I will have a post devoted entirely to breakfast goodies, later in the week.  I promise!

Making Sunday brunch has become one of those family traditions I was talking about in my last post. 
Usually mom comes to join us, but, unfortunately, she couldn’t make it this morning.
 I was really disappointed!  What with the cold and snowy weather, I’ve only seen mom twice since Christmas!  She usually stops over at least once a week,  so this has been a long stretch!  I really miss her!
 That’s why I decided tonight is a good night for some good, old-fashion, comfort food.  The kind of meal mom used to make for me when I was a kid.
Since I was getting all sentimental, I thought I would make my favorite meal when I was growing up. 

Scalloped Potatoes, Meatloaf, Green Beans, and Apple Crisp for dessert!

YUM! My mouth was seriously watering the whole time I was preparing each dish!

I promise I’ll be back to share all the recipes for each one, but tonight I’m just going to share my mom’s meatloaf recipe! 

It truly is the best comfort food!

Love you mom! 🙂
