Comfort food again!

This was a week for comfort food.  Last night was meatloaf, “mashed potatoes” and broccoli. I ended up with 200grams of meatloaf, 150grams of mash and some broccoli.  I figured the net carbs was about 26 grams.  Not bad for a big dinner.  Enjoy! Meatloaf Mashed Potatoes and Parship
