My mother came over last night for dinner. Our plan was to watch Call the Midwife a PBS show that takes place in the 50s. I love this show and thought she might too. So I decided to make a retro meal on which I grew up: Her meatloaf and scalloped potatoes. And a iceberg lettuce salad.
I have always loved her meatloaf and used to love to have cold meatloaf sandwiches packed in my lunch when I was in grade school.
Call the Midwife was a great choice to watch with her. All about having babies in the 50s. Pregnant women smoking in the doctor’s office and nuns. She loved it. We watched 3 episodes.
The meatloaf. I dunno, nothing I make tastes like my mother made it.
