Thursday Night's Dinner .....................

Younger daughter loves meatballs - if she had her way we would have them for dinner every night but then after about two weeks she would probably declare that she didn't want them ever again - she is like this with most foods.  For weeks she wanted tuna sandwiches for lunch and now won't touch them!  Anyway, younger daughter wanted meatballs on Thursday yet elder daughter had declared her intention to become vegetarian!  No problem though, it seems that the keen vegetarian will make a dispensation for lamb - which she likes! 

Meatballs in Tomato Sauce from Vanessa Kimbell's Prepped (page 140) was perfect - just substituted lamb for beef and we were in business.

The perfect accompanying salad on page 131 - minus a couple of the suggested ingredients but the inspiration was there.

Younger daughter helped with the making of the meatballs

Younger daughter would like to repeat this dinner tomorow!  We'll see.

  1. I love meatballs too - I could eat them every night! Have not tried Vanessa's (will have to purchase her book) but use a lovely authentic Italian recipe from "My Cousin Rosa" by Rosa Mitchell.
    Dinner looked great!
