OHMY! Two Posts in One Day!!!

I just made one of my most delicious dinners and I thought you’d all like to partake in the deliciousness. I wish I could Willy Wonka this ish to you and you could eat it right now!

Tonight I made Greek Meatballs and roasted veg. I’ll give you a sketch of the recipe because I kind of made this one up.

Roasted veg: I use chopped red bell pepper, zucchini, yellow squash and button mushrooms. Toss them in some olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic. NOTE – you may need a bit more olive oil if you choose not to use mushrooms because they cook down a lot and create some liquid. A good measure is to do just enough olive oil until all the veggies (after tossing) have a little sheen to the,.


Yes, that is a 13x9 inch pan. yes I’m still single. I do not particularly enjoy cooking for just one person EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. So I make a butt-load so I have scads of leftovers.

Bake these suckers at 425 for 10-15 minutes, stir, and bake for another 10 minutes. Keep an eye on them , you don’t want them over done – but if they are still a bit too crispy to your taste, throw ‘em back in the ovester.

The meatballs. I use a pound of ground turkey, two beaten eggs, some bread crumbs, one package defrosted and drained chopped spinach, crumbled feta (maybe half the pack) and salt /pepper to taste.

Get your hands dirty and mix that mess up. put on a baking sheet ( a quick spray of PAM is recommended).



These are uncooked in this picture. I also know you all LOVE the quality of my camera. Listen, cameras/picture taking isn’t really my thing. My digi cam isn’t really working (likely problem – needs new batteries) and of course, my blackberry has the shittiest camera any phone has known this century.

Cook these lil suckers at 425 for 10 minutes, flip and 10 more. I put too much of something in this time and they were a bit softer than I generally like them – maybe too few bread crumbs? or not enough wringing out of the spinach?

Anyway – finish product:

dinner done

I went a little semi-homemade with Sandra I am the NYS governor’s girlfriend and know enough to stay out of politics Lee, or whatever her name is, and used store bought tzatziki sauce (hahah, figuring out how to spell THAT was fun).

It was delish! however, I ate way too fast and have a bit of a belly ache. Nothing a Sam Adams Noble Pils can’t solve I’m sure. Ahhhh, spring. I freaking heart you!

Now, back to watching the Yankee’s (finally just scored!) Not sure what Hughes’s problem is this season. Get it together kid – any major league team can only afford ONE AJ Burnett.
