*Meat Loaf with Sweet and Sour Sauce*

Today I decided on Meat loaf. I came up with this mixture when I first got out on my Owen. The original recipe came from a children's cookbook I had received as a gift from my mother. The cookbook was lost in a fire, so I had to try to remember the ingredients on my Owen. I think with my memory it got changed a bit. I got the single serving idea from a Fanny Farmer recipe book. I like this idea because of my finicky fiance'. For him I omit the onion and bell pepper.After I pack his into the muffin tin I add my onion and bell pepper, and we are both happy. Here you go!
