A Waxhaw Wedding and Some Meatloaf (Easy Salsa Meatloaf)

Hey turkeys!  Happy Monday. Let's talk about A Waxhaw Wedding. 

What is a Waxhaw Wedding you are wondering?  Glad you asked.  

It's a wedding that goes down at a farm in Rosedale, MS.  A farm by the name of Waxhaw to be specific. 
Lovely scenery, perfect weather, amazing friends and two people who you just can't help but smile whenever you are around them.  

Ha, no silly goat.  Not me and B.  Clare and Blake!  They were the couple of the weekend and it couldn't have been more perfect.  The energy was lovely and just so them.   
We spent the wedding weekend in Clarksdale, MS at the Shackup InnThere was music and dancing, yoga and chicken.  The Ritz, it aint (seriously, they say it on their website) but it's pretty cool spot to do some serious hanging out.  Check it out if you've never been there!

We were bussed to Rosedale for the wedding where we danced and visited and ate and drank.  It was one of the prettiest receptions I've ever seen...I mean really.  Do you see that backdrop?  Good stuff.    
I'm over the moon for Clare and Blake and their little man Gus.  If the wedding is any indicator of the marriage....they've got many wonderful years to look forward to!

Now.  You might be wondering what meatloaf has to do with any of this.  Well.  Not much.  Aside from the fact that we had meatloaf at the rehearsal dinner.  
The Friday night meal was catered from Mama Joe's in Oxford which is a supposedly amazing soul food joint.  Meatloaf, mac and cheese, greens, black eyed peas, chicken and dumplings.  I cleaned my plate, sorry I'm not sorry.  

While we were eating Brandon casually mentioned that he loves meatloaf and I should make it one night.  Well obviously I took that request and ran with it because home fry doesn't do a ton of requesting meals.  

That, my friends, is that back story of this easy salsa meatloaf.  Easy, it was as I was able to put it together the Monday night after the wedding.  Anyone who has been on a big wedding weekend adventure knows that's kind of a big deal...
