She {hearts} Italian Crockpot Meatloaf

On Tuesdays, my daughter has ballet at 6. That’s usually the time I’m in the kitchen prepping for dinner. We don’t get home until 7:30, so I like for supper to be ready when we get home. Putting a meal in the crockpot around lunch is my answer for Tuesday dinners! Below is a new recipe I found for crockpot meatloaf! I’ve never been a big meatloaf fan, but this is good!
