This Crock Pot Meatloaf is topped with Ketchup and made in the slow cooker with carrots and potatoes! Throw this delicious Crockpot Meatloaf in your slow cooker this week!
Anyone else love meatloaf, yet hate how long it takes to make? It’s kind of out the question for a quick weeknight meal in my book! Some of our favorites include Chicken Bacon Ranch Meatloaf, Italian Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf, and Cheesy Meatloaf, but these happen on the weekend for sure. They do make a perfect Sunday Dinner that’s for sure!
Our Saturday was a busy one that’s for sure! Harvest is in full swing out at my parents farm and this is the first time we went out to the farm to participate in the festivities. The day began with making lunch for the guys. I was not aware that I practically need a flow chart to make sandwiches for the guys. This one get bread, these like buns, this one doesn’t like anything but meat, but they get cheese and mayonnaise. After I was done making sandwiches I felt like my brain needed a break! My Mom sure spoils them.
If it was me making them I’d be like here’s a bag of sandwiches. Eat Them. Nope. Not Mom. She gives them all individualized lunches with sandwiches (made to order), chips, grapes, cookies and a beverage of their liking. Guys, if you haven’t figured it out, you have it made!

I was also reminded quickly how nothing goes as planned on the farm. You have to be able to roll with the punches and change your plans as you go that’s for sure. First, I was delivering lunch to the field. As I was walking out the door my phone rang, nope, beans are to wet so go meet the guys at the farm place.
I get there and then they are working on a truck that broke down. That does not go as planned and takes up 2+ hours of the day. Whoops. Let’s just say they sent the wrong fuel filter, something broke off and I was supposed to run to the mechanic to get this fixed. I’m about ready to leave and suddenly I get a text to bring the part back because the mechanic is coming out the farm. Seriously. I can’t keep up!

I also got to take a little ride in the combine with my little brother and Miss K. Apparently they named the tractor that Daddy drove last year and Miss K remembered it. If you are wondering it’s George, Curious George that is.
Curious George also broke down. Well, actually the grain cart, which the hubs was driving. Therefore they had to go dig out the old grain cart and tractor and roll with that. Like I said, things are always changing! By the time I left I was exhausted just trying to keep up with it all and I hadn’t even did anything!
Oh, by the way, want to know the name of the combine. In case you need a good laugh and all! Uncle Brent named the combine Cleetus and Miss K was DYING. Well, so was I for that matter!
The day ended with us bringing a big meal of Crock Pot Italian Chicken out to the guys which they happily gobbled up! Nothing went wrong there thankfully! I know they would love this Crock Pot Meatloaf and Veggies just like we did!
