Since Hubby made me his famous breakfast omelets (this time he put both bacon and sausage in them), I had to come up with an awesome dinner.
We had very strange weather yesterday. I kept telling the kids it looked like rain, and soon after they left for school, it rained. Then around 2:00pm, it snowed. It got cold enough to fire up the wood stove too. Thankfully, Hubby and I had restocked a small area of wood on the porch.
Hubby decided we would not split wood yesterday, so I'd have time to make homemade meatballs to go with spaghetti. Funny how that excuse got him out of working the wood, ha ha! We still have a bit of home canned tomato sauce left too.
I used Candy's recipe over at Lazy J Bar C. I used half for dinner and froze the other half for another meal. I love that these use oatmeal instead of any bread crumbs, and I don't have to brown them on the stove top.
I made us a big bowl of salad too - arugula, endive, radicchio, and shaved Parmesan. This was topped with a homemade lemon vinaigrette. We have never tried radicchio, and I'm not even sure we have eaten arugula.
Three meatballs were enough for me. I used my cookie scoop. They are the easiest meatballs I've ever made, and delicious. We used half ground chuck and half ground pork.
