well, winter came with a vengeance this week. one day, we had a low of -14F with -30F wind chills. insanely brrrrr!!! and to top it off, avery & i both have a cold. aside from the occasional sniffles, i feel better enough to prepare our dinner tonight.
ingredients:1 medium sized onion grated
1/8 cup dried parsley
3 tbsp ketchup
5 minced garlic cloves
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
2/3 cup grated Parmesan
2 tbsp wheat germ
1/4 cup dried Italian bread crumbs
1lb ground beef
1. except for the ground beef, mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
2. add ground beef to the mixture [i hand mixed everything].
3. roll into 1 inch balls & line in a baking pan.
4. bake for about 20 minutes in a preheated oven at 350F.
this is originally a spaghetti & meatballs recipe that i found at the baked bree blog. [i'll try the marinara sauce next time for sure].
as for the little miss, she was already content eating the meatballs with ketchup.
