Chili Braggart

I love my own chili, I know it sounds silly, heat in pot nice and hot it is truly a dilly. I love my own meatloaf. I throw on a sugar top. Other people would not do it, or know how to stop. I do, you big oaf. After all, this sugary brown sugar ketchup combination is what makes it my meatloaf. I love my own cooking. Restaurants are rarely okay. My most favorite me-cooked-meal Navy beans and ham, in a gravy over cornbread, Good thing my husband likes it too, or things would be coming to a head.

Ah that old home cooking! There's nothing like it. My Mom loved it too but, I'm thinking the sugar might be tasty. I don't eat meat anymore but I think my Mom would've like that idea too.

A cup of brown sugar and a cup of ketchup with a spoon full of mustard. Stir it up and pour it lavishly on the top of the meatloaf fifteen minutes before it is completely cooked.Yum! Yum!
