As far as I know, there is not an official beginning to the meatloaf season. But as soon as the weather gets cold, the wind gets raw and the sun goes down early, I get a hankering for this comforting food.
Meatloaf can be made with veal or pork, but mainstream meatloaf, the kind I tasted recently, is made with good old ground beef, some chopped onions, egg and the products of the cook's imagination. It is a dish designed to fill you up, heat you up and send you back into the cold world with a warm glow.
Safeway Homestyle Meat Loaf
Address --2401 N. Charles St.
Hours --8 a.m.-8 p.m. daily
The deli section of this supermarket serves a $6.99 fully cooked, 18-ounce meatloaf that is heated and ready to eat. Topped with a tomato glaze, this mild-tasting meatloaf is enough food for a family of four, or one very hungry fella.
