    I am recently retired and trying to do some meal cooking now that I am home way before my wife. She loves meatloaf and we both eat low sodium so this looked perfect. I am not a very good cook but your recipe and instructions were great for me to shop from and then prepare. I did end up buying some of the herbs, because I could not find them in the cabinet. My wife showed me where the herbs are kept when she got home so now we have lots of extra. I also bought a 9 x 5 pan, then I was also instructed where those are kept in the cupboard, but I have a really nice new pan now. Anyway, I added some carrots and celery to the meatloaf but stuck to your recipe other than that. It turned out great!! I served it with 4 cheese potatoes. My wife really liked it and appreciated that I made it for her. I even cleaned up all my mess when I was done! Thanks for a tasty recipe!!
