Kate's Meatloaf

makes 10 slices
2 pounds organic ground beef
2-3 eggs
Finely chopped (I use food processor on pulse) celery, onion, green pepper, carrots- about 3/4-1 cup of each.
About 1½-2 cups of breadcrumbs- Italian seasoned if on hand. Otherwise, plain works too. May need more breadcrumbs depending on the consistency of the meatloaf.
About 3/4 cup shredded or grated Parmesan cheese (whichever's on hand).
About ¼ to ½ cup ketchup.

Grandma Vegetable Soup- Makes 10 Servings

1 Soup bone w/meat
1 Onion; chopped
3 Carrots; sliced
3 Potatoes
5 Stalks of celery
Green beans
1 can (large) Tomatoes
1 Handful Barley or alphabet macaroni
3 Bay leaves

Boil soup bone in water enough to cover for 1 1/2 to 2 hours - until meat comes off bone easily. Remove bone - when cool enough - remove meat and cut fine. Return meat to stock - add onion, carrots potatoes celery, greenbeans, corn (not creamed) and tomatoesand bayleaves - add more water if needed - cook on a low fire after first coming to a boil. After 1 hour stir in barley or macaroni - cook another 1/2 to 1 hour - stir often as the barley will stick to pan and burn. NOTE: Used to look forward to this on wintery nights!
