I've been making this most of our married life, and don't remember it's original source. I adapted to our tastes and have the fat. The addition of the peas and carrots into the meatloaf sounds unusual, but somehow it really works! I have shared many times with friends and family. It is so good, I've made two and served at dinner parties! The whole house will smell wonderful when this is cooking.
