Thawed a couple of links of Italian sausage and a like amount of hamburger this afternoon while I piddled about in the basement. Nothing special about the recipe, an egg, a splash of milk, a handful of bread crumbs, some Parmesan and an onion, some minced bell peppers. Odds and ends of spices: dried basil, oregano, onion powder and garlic. Tossed some veggies in after the meatloaf had a head start, then cranked the heat when the meatloaf came out. By the time the gravy was ready the veggies had some nice color.
