    Please, if you have a great recipe, pass it on to your family before you
    die! Taking secrets like this to the grave is just silly.
    Having treasured family recipes handed down and enjoyed by one's descendants
    is a wonderful thing.

    I don't like soft melty meatloaf, but mine are never dry because I wrap them
    in bacon before they go into the oven. I got this from my mother-in-law. I
    never liked meatloaf until I had hers!

    Huh? Drat, I *knew* I should have have had the post office track the
    shipments. <sigh> You just can't find good service anywhere anymore.
