Who's a "Meat and Potato" kind of person

I said it before...but its so true so I'm gonna say it again...


Really I do!! 

I love eating the foods I grew up with, even the most basic dishes, you know like Meat Loaf!!  
So the other night when I was flipping through my old recipes, 
(the ones my mom gave me before I got married with all the family favorites), 
I saw this recipe and decided this was WHAT WAS GONNA BE FOR DINNER!!  

An old family favorite....Simple MEAT AND POTATO PIE
