Night off!

Tonight for dinner, Kay attempted to make spaghetti and meatballs. There was a lot of work involved with making the meatballs, she had to manually chop the onion (yes we have a food processor but I wanted her to learn to finely chop onions!) into fine (very fine) pieces and then mix the onions, garlic, seasonings and bread crumbs together with her hands. After the mixture was completely mixed, she had to roll the meat into little balls and pan fry them on medium heat for about 15 minutes. I didn't watch over her this time (which I should have) and her meatballs didn't turn out cos she didn't realize that these do not have to be continuously stirred in the pan and they fell apart! Oh well, no meatballs so it became just spaghetti and meat sauce! Still pretty yummy though :) Wonder what she will come up with next week.....

On another note, I finished the book "marley & me" by John Grogan. Very sweet book and if you are a dog lover, you must READ THIS BOOK. Very well written!

Next time, try mixing a tiny bit of egg yolk to the meat. The meat will stick much better.
