Stretching the Food Budget

Quick Fun Fact -

My husband loves meatloaf, so when I heard this fact I found it very interesting.

Did you know that during the Great Depression cooking meatloaf was a way for families to stretch their food budget?  They would use inexpensive meat and mix in egg, crushed cereal or crackers, veggies, and spices to make an easy, delicious, and low-budget dinner.
