Speedy Mini Meat Loaves

cathy tate


My passion has always been cooking and baking. Skip to the present.. now disabiled with a degenerative lung/heart disease and rhuematoid arthritis, cooking is not as easy as it once was and has to involve numerous rest periods during each stage of the cooking process. Since there is only my husband and I, I only cook a large family meal once a week when we all get together. This recipie is one of those "during the week meals". It is a combination of some that I've seen and some of my own additions. I must say that to be so easy, they are incrediabily good.
