Balsamic & Fig Meatloaf

Happy Friday people!  I hope you all had a fabulous week.  My week has been quite different from most…but I’ll save that for a post coming soon.  I have had a little more time on my hands so decided to break out the cook books and get a little creative.

Fall is definitely in the air and I am not complaining.  It is by far my favorite season! It also makes me crave hearty meals with a sweet and savory spin, dinner by candlelight, and a nice pumpkin beer.  (see below)IMG_2361

I hadn’t made meatloaf in forever, probably since the 21 day sugar detox.  As I was flipping through Diane SanFilippo’s Practical Paleo I came across a recipe for Lamb Meatballs with a Balsamic & Fig Compote.  Sounded amazing!  Except I’m not the biggest lamb fan and I really wanted to make a meatloaf!  So was born Balsamic & Fig Meatloaf.

Well I’m here to tell you that you can teach yoga! You will find people to teach somewhere.  You will make some money and you will be awesome.  Continue reading
