I have been looking for a good meatloaf recipe and found this one from Alton Brown.
Alton Brown Meatloaf Recipe
The picture doesn't do this justice but I forgot to take picture before, so this is after. This was moist and flavorful. Made a meatloaf sandwich the next day and it was delicious.
Oven rack should be in center position. Preheat oven to 325. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
Combine croutons, black and cayenne pepper, chili powder, and thyme in food processor. Pulse until it becomes crumbs, Place in large mixing bowl. Add onions, carrots, garlic and red pepper to food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Don't overpulse should not be puree. Pour into bowl. Add the chuck and sirloin to bowl. Add salt and mix well. Don't squeeze the meat.
Press the meat mixture into a loaf pan. Turn it over and place on baking sheet. Cook 10 minutes and pull out from oven and remove loaf pan.
Cook Meatloaf another 55 minutes. Mix the ketchup, cumin, hot sauce and honey in bowl and stir well. Once the meatloaf has cooked that 55 minutes, pull out and brush topping on top. Cook additional 10 minutes.
Let meatloaf cool 10 minutes before serving.

Instant Pot African Peanut Stew
This is a warm comfort food dish that is filling and perfect on a chilly day.
I used Instant pot and put in all ingredients from olive oil to collard greens in instant pot and programmed for soup.
Cook rice according to instruction on package.
Serve stew on top of cooked rice. Garnish with cilantro, peanuts, and lime wedge.
If you do not have a instant pot you can easily adapt this into a soup pan. I would cook onion in olive oil with garlic and ginger and then add spices, tomato paste, sweet potato, peanut butter, broth and water. Let boil and as sweet potato begins to soften add in the collard greens.
