A Winner of a Dinner

My family likes a hearty meal, especially during football season when the boys are trying to gain weight. Let me just stop and say that living with boys who are trying to gain weight is almost too much for me. All of the calories in my refrigerator and pantry are constantly calling my name.

Football season is one of our favorite times of the year and this is one of our favorite meals. My boys will come home from a friends house or skip eating out with friends when meatloaf and potatoes are on the menu. This is a big WIN for me because I adore having all of my guys around the dinner table. (Thank you Stephanie Watson for the yummy meatloaf recipe!)

1 onion, minced

1 bell pepper, diced

3/4 cup brown sugar
