I grew up hating my mom's meatloaf. She used ground beef, minced onions, an egg, cracker meal, and a sauce on top of ketchup/brown sugar.
When I ate meatloaf away from home (probably a restaurant somewhere) and it had real tomato sauce on top and pieces of bell pepper in it, wow! I fell in love. Meatloaf is one of those things I don't make but will order at Cracker Barrel or somewhere - I love it now. (but it has to have bell pepper in it!!!)
It's difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a homegrown tomato. ~Lewis Grizzard
