There is something charming about meatloaf. Even if you are a 20-something who maybe didn’t even grow up eating it often (or ever), meatloaf feels pleasantly nostalgic. With its tomato glaze and trusty sides of green beans and mashed potatoes, meatloaf is straightforward comfort food at it’s finest.
If you have leftover chicken or beef bones and/or veggie scraps from preparing meals throughout the week, do yourself a huge favor and don't throw them out just yet. Making homemade stock is a fantastic way to turn leftover produce and bones from meat and poultry, that you'd otherwise throw out, into an essential ingredient for rich, flavor-packed meals and sides. You'll never go back to store-bought stock once you realize how much more delicious the homedmade version is, and just how easy it is to make from scratch.
