R.I.P. George Jones!

He Stopped Loving Her Today

I am sad that George Jones is gone. He was one of the all time greats of Country Music and always one of my very favorites.

Rest In Peace, my friend

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — George Jones, the peerless, hard-living country singer who recorded dozens of hits about good times and regrets and peaked with the heartbreaking classic "He 
Stopped Loving Her Today," has died. He was 81.

Meatloaf For a Chef Review!

Meatloaf For a Chef
The best meatloaf ever. If you want to try something different, try this one. Just be sure
and check it before you put the last of the cheese
on top. Remember it will continue cooking for 
the 10 minutes it is sitting out after you take it out of the oven. I did not cover this in the oven. The top is crispy and very tasty.  I didn't think
