Easy Peasy Meatloaf

Meatloaf is pretty much a staple on my menu. I always keep the ingredients in the house because Matt is basically obsessed with it. I try to make my version as healthy as possible by getting 97% lean ground beef and using whole wheat bread crumbs. I also add random ingredients like canned peas, carrots, and even potatoes sometimes! Here is the basic recipe I go off of and I ad-lib a little :-)
