Something's Burning.....Meat Loaf

I think I'm going to call all of my recipe posts "Something's Burning" -- Cooking has never been my forte but I'm actually starting to enjoy it more now that we own a stove with more than two working burners and there isn't need to flip the breaker switch when we use the oven!!
I'm not a huge fan of meatloaf (in fact if I cook it, I don't normally eat it) but Chad loves him some meatloaf, which was on his list of requests for dinner this week. I found this recipe on the Food Network a few months ago and I've made it a few times since and the hubby has given it two thumbs up and a belly rub. Enjoy!
Notice the amount of mashed potatoes? He loves some homemade mashed potoates!
