A Christmas Story 'Mommy's little piggy'

Ralphie, a young boy growing up in the '40's, dreams of owning a Red Rider BB gun. He sets out to convince the world this is the perfect Christmas gift. But along the way, he runs into opposition from his parents, his teacher, and even good 'old Santa Claus himself. 

Mommy's little piggy scene: In an attempt to get her sun to eat his mashed potatoes and meatloaf, his mother encourage him to eat like a 'little piggy'.

Meatloaf, considered the ultimate comfort food by many, is a dish of ground meat formed into a loaf shape and baked or smoked. It is usually made from ground beef, although lamb, pork, veal, venison, and poultry or a combination are also used.
