Even though this menu is a mile long, it was easy and can all be made ahead of time! I made most it the day before.
Family Favourite Meatloaf
Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time 1 hour Makes 4-6 Servings
Meatloaf to me is so classic, and this recipe is my one and only recipe I have EVER used to make it. It's so good, and we cannot get enough of it, so basically 'Don't fix, what aint' Broke!"
My Mother In-Law gifted me the Best of Bridge Cookbook, and this page is WELL used! I've made it so much during my marriage, I can now make it by memory, which is HUGE for this Recipe reliant wanna-be-cook. Very rarely do I make something without a Recipe, so I always feel quite accomplished when I make something from memory.

1/2 cup Milk

7 Layer Salad
Also a classic, with a great taste and crunch!
Traditionally made in a Trifle dish, we convert into a casserole dish, much easier and more practical for the field. True, you don't get to see the beautiful coloured layers, but really I don't think my farmers care!
