STEWART STERN'S "MEATLOAF WITH A CAUSE"
On the Monday preceding our monthly homeless cooking, we are proud to serve our Meatloaf With a Cause. This tangy and sweet meatloaf gets served with our mashed potatoes and sautéed green beans. It’s delicious, full of the comfort you crave in meatloaf, with interesting touches to make it perhaps the meatloaf you’ve always longed for. The recipe was gifted to us by dear friend of St. Clouds and famous screenwriter, Stewert Stern, best known perhaps for his scripts for Rebel Without a Cause and Sybil. 

When he heard about our monthly Homeless Cooking Adventure, Stewart offered us the recipe (along with a slice of the meatloaf that sent John to heaven with the taste of it) if we promised to use it for what he calls, “John’s good cause: giving the best to comfort people who need it.”  So, we serve it each month on the Monday preceding the homeless cooking project, as a way of reminding all of our guests of what we do to help feed the homeless in Seattle. Our dear thanks to Stewart, who tells us Jimmy Dean always took a second helping.
