One time in college my best friend/roommate Sarah and I each came back from Christmas break with the exact same pair of polka-dot rain boots from Target. Same color. Same size.

I’m in Texas visiting her this week, and it took us about 30 seconds of being together to realize that we have the exact same turquoise and purple iPhone case. The exact. same. one.

We are pretty much kindred spirits. The only drawback is that now her 4-year-old son thinks my phone is hers, and steals it when I’m not looking to take a thousand selfies every day.

Eric is back home slaving away while I take a girl’s trip to visit my best friend and sister. And by girl’s trip I mean all of the children are involved, so it’s not really one of those. We went to Walmart today with all 5 of our kids. We bought limes and diapers. It took 2 hours.

I’m not complaining though. It’s easier to dodge People of Walmart photographers if you’re in a group.

I woke up on my birthday last year majorly missing my sister Laura, who lives in Dallas. I’ve never visited, so I asked for tickets to see her for Christmas, and here we are. My friend Sarah also lives in Texas (7 hours away) and I thought it would be a great idea to rent a car one way to see her too. This was before I remembered how much I LOVE taking road trips with small children, so extra bonus for me!

Really though, we’re having so much fun. Time and space got nothin on kindred spirits.

Meatloaf. I mean, other than bread, pretty much anything that has the word “loaf” in it is going to have a hard time sounding appetizing and winning beauty contests. Calling it “1770 House Meatloaf” definitely adds a little pizazz, so thanks for that Ina. Yes, this is a Barefoot Contessa recipe, so of course it is the best meatloaf I’ve ever had. It’s tender, moist, and flavorful. Pure comfort food.

My mom used to make people guess what was in her meatloaf, because she was always just throwing in whatever was in the fridge. You know, just in case meatloaf wasn’t adventurous enough for you already.

But this recipe is pretty basic. The fresh herbs and garlic sauce take it to a whole new level. Plus it’s HUGE, so it’s great for feeding a crowd. Or you could freeze half for a later meal.

Garlic Sauce for Ina Garten Meatloaf

Why have I never thought of making gravy to go with meatloaf? So much better than sugary ketchup. (Let’s not get confused here: I love ketchup. But I do prefer savory sauces with meat.) And this is not even gravy. It’s garlic sauce. 10 cloves of garlic? Enough said. It’s an Ina Garten meatloaf, alright.

You do not have to use veal for this recipe to be awesome. Instead use 1 and 1/2 pounds each pork and beef.
