Spending time in an extended-stay hotel with just a microwave and stovetop for cooking, along with minimal cookware, led me to be a bit creative at mealtime. I was craving meatloaf and came up with this recipe from foods I had on hand leftover from earlier meals. I was pleased with how it turned out considering my limited options. And it wasn't a reheated frozen dinner either!
