Melt-in-your-Mouth Meatloaf

I think it’s about time for me to do one of those grocery bans of sorts. I’ve been relegating my monthly grocery budget to $100 since it’s pretty much the only thing I really spend money on and I like splurging on food (sigh), but I just looked in my fridge/freezer and holy crud, I need to eat everything in there before I go buy anything else. D:

As such, you will likely be seeing a whole lot of “throw everything I have in the kitchen together into a dish”-type recipes next month. :O The recipe for this one is adapted from here! Makes approximately 7 servings. It does indeed melt in your mouth and it is glorious.
