Solar Meatloaf with Mixed Veggies

Fortunately accuweather.com isn't always right. Contrary to their forecast, yesterday afternoon was sunny and today there were no showers. That meant I could make my meatloaf and avoid freezing the ground beef I had in the fridge. I no longer follow a recipe for meatloaf. I just use whatever I have on hand. To make it less calorific I always try to mix in as many vegetables as possible. Today I used a mixture of onions, carrots, zucchini, and mushrooms. After sauteing the shredded veggies in a frying pan with some olive oil, I allowed them to cool before mixing them with one pound of ground beef, a slightly beaten egg, and a slice of bread soaked in milk. For seasoning I used dried basil, mustard powder, salt, and pepper. I always line the roasting pan with a strip of tin foil; it makes it much easier to remove the loaf when it's done.
