Individual Meatloaves & Horseradish Mashed Potatoes for Mommies Little Piggies #SundaySupper

Happy Sunday and welcome to the Holiday Music and Movie Inspired #SundaySupper event.   This is fun event is hosted by Tammi of Momma's Meals.  Thank you for having us around your table this week.

Do you have a must watch movie for the holidays?  One that you just have to watch every single year? I just recently - okay by recently it is something like three years ago - have gotten into the habit of having to watch some movies and it is just not Christmas without them.  Yes, it is true I have succumbed and I love it...The movies on my must watch list include Christmas Vacation {ahhhhmmm this year I may be guilty of having watched it already twice...}, Love Actually, Elf, The Grinch who stole Christmas, and Christmas Story.  Yes, this is the absolute must list and I certainly do not mind any additions because this is the time to be merry...Oh, and you may not be surprised to hear that the girls are absolutely delighted that there are movies that must be watched ;)

Now on to #SundaySupper and my dish; it was quite hard to find something to fit the bill. I could not think of anything...but after dinner one Friday night we all brainstormed; my dear friend Larissa thought that it had to be meatloaf with mashed potatoes and Ron agreed.  So see - this is how it happened.  Now this is not the ordinary meatloaf you usually find here but this is not one but six individual loaves; packed with a mix of beef, pork, and lot's of vegetables.  The mashed potatoes are also a little more special as they are Horseradish Mashed Potatoes with just a little extra zing....Take a look at one of my little piggies eating her plate...
