Miranda Lambert’s Favorite – Her Mom, Bev’s Famous Meatloaf
Maybe it’s not quite famous, but this recipe has been printed several times. After last night’s CMA Awards Show – everything about Miranda Lambert and her husband Blake Shelton is noteworthy. This is the only requested birthday dinner for everyone in Miranda’s family. They like to serve it with mashed potatoes or with Blake’s favorites, corn and macaroni casserole.
Congratulations Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton!
