Looks great, got a recipe? And whats the yellow stuff on the side? Looks almost like a pureed squash, I am assuming it is the sauce.

yea it's just puree'd butternut squash.

the recipe is pretty basic, in a bowl combine:

1.25 lbs ground pork
1.25 lbs ground beef
1 onion, minced
2 carrots, peeled, minced
2 celery stalks, minced
1 tbspn cilantro
1/4 to 1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 egg
1 tbspn romano cheese

for the sauce:
combine 1 small can tomatoe paste with 16 oz of water and 2 diced roma tomatoes and simmer for 10 minutes or until thickened. season with salt and oregano. set aside.

- grease a loaf pan, and add 1/2 of the mixture.
- spread on a layer of ketchup just enough to glaze the top.
- add the second half of the mixture and pack tightly, being sure to press down on all sides making a small mound.

bake in preheated over at 365 for approx. 1 hour to 1 hour 20 minutes or until the internal temperature has reached 155 degrees

10 minutes before the loaf is done, spread the sauce over the top. add a squirt of ketchup and spread that on as well.

let stand 10 minutes. Drain fat. cut loaf while it is in the pan to prevent it from falling apart

Ok Debbie the hamburger is thawing, Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf is on the menu!
It was between this and the crock-pot one. We'll try that next week I guess!
I'm out of celery but I'm sure it's edible without it.
I'm wondering if leftovers (should there be any) would freeze alright?

I rarely put celery in anything, unless it's soup or stock then I leave the stalks whole so I can pick them out. I just can't stomach the taste of the stuff for some reason. Too healthy I guess!

What I do though is substitute celery salt for some of the regular salt the recipe calls for, and that introduces the flavor a bit. This would be perfect for a meatloaf recipe that doesn't "depend" so much on the celery.

I don't care for celery either. I chop it up real fine for soups, stews and pot roasts and by the time it's done, there's no flavor left in the celery and most of it has disolved.
