Turkey Meatloaf

My first SCD Thanksgiving meal was a success. The sauce pictured in the image is the cherry pear sauce located on the site. I simply roasted my veggies in honey, mustard powder, salt, and olive oil along with the turkey meatloaf (same time, stirring occasionally). Veggies include: celery, broccoli, string beans, and spinach.
