How did we choose Thursday? you ask. Well, Tuesdays were a conflict between Glee (the girls) and Lost (the boys). Mondays is Zumba night at the gym. Wednesdays are one of the boys family dinner night. So we choose Thursday.
For dinner this past Thursday evening. Homemade meatballs, gravy (not homemade), Lingenberries, and boiled potatoes, OH and Asparagus, since it is in season...ish (that and I like it). Miss Em and I were feeling inspired by our trip to Ikea. :D
P.S. I have never made homemade meatballs before, so incase you want to try...
- Chop up 1 reg. onion. Saute in a pan with a scootch of oil (olive or canola or veggie) until clear-ish.
- Mix with ground beef (preferably the lean kind), some eggs, some bread crumbs, some salt, some pepper, and some milk.
- Bake these in the oven. Put yummy brown gravy and some lingenberries on them!
(okay I know I got a little sketchy on the details... I was dying of hunger!)
Miss Em notes: Swedish meatballs are normally cooked in a skillet, but skillet cooking tends to brown faster than it cooks. So she cooks her swedish meatballs the italian way. Also, run your onions under cold water before you chop = less crying action. The more onion the better in her opinion!
