A do-ahead meal was required to eat with friends after a trip to the zoo. There were ravenous kids, food-loving adults and rosy cheeks for everyone, so we needed fun, fast, tasty food. Sandwiches with cold, egg-stuffed, bacon-wrapped meatloaf were it. I baked the loaf in the morning, it cooled while we admired Artis’ new baby chimp and when we got home all we had to do was slice, slather (with mayo), slap on some bread and eat. Refined it was not, but those rosy cheeks were chomping happily.
