Meatloaf, just like on tv

Surprisingly ok:

quantities are approximate:
* 1 cup of tomato sauce
* 2 tablespoons of barbeque sauce
* 1 tablespoons of sugar
* 0.5kg/1kg of beef mince
* 6 tablespoons of plain flour or breadcrumbs or both
* some salt
* some "onion powder"
* some "garlic powder"
* some ground black pepper

1. tomato sauce, barbeque sauce, and sugar in a small saucepan over moderate high heat, stirring until it starts to bubble.
2. mix most of the tomato sauce goo (leave about two tablespoons) and beef mince in a bowl.
3. add the rest of the ingredients and mix it all up good and proper.
4. dump it into a loaf tin/whatever you can find to cook it in, cover it in cooking foil, and put it into a hot (200 degrees) oven for half an hour.
5. take it out after half an hour and discard the foil - if it's particularly fatty, drain the fat.
6. cut it into about eight slices/chunks, pour the remaining tomato sauce goo into the cracks and over the top of the meatloaf.
7. cook uncovered for another half an hour or until it's cooked.
8. serve with vegetables, because otherwise this is a heart attack waiting to happen.

I reckon it'd be awesome with chili or paprika or, y'know, any kind of taste. Also maybe some small bits of carrots and capsicum and mushroom and stuff.
