I make REALLY good meatballs.
I don't know how other people make them, or if what I do is anything different, but I can go for weeks eating these things. Occasionally I get a craving to see The Godfather, and then begins a veritable orgy of red sauce and pasta and these:

Here's how I do it:
1-2 lbs of ground beef
2-3 eggs
parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 375°. In a large bowl, break the eggs into the meat. Add about 1 cup of breadcrumbs, and about a half cup of cheese. Mix by hand until everything is combined. Keep adding breadcrumbs to absorb the egg until the mixture is not too wet. Roll meatballs into evenly sized balls. Place in a glass baking dish and cook for 25 - 30 minutes, until cooked all the way through.

Oh Lord.
I do so love these things.
Plus, as luck would have it, I'm married to a man who makes the greatest red sauce in the land.

(Though, he tends to eat before allowing his food to cool sufficiently, thereby forcing his wife to post photographic evidence)

And it seems that our child is quickly gaining appreciation.

I'd appreciate it if you'd combine the knitting with the cooking throughout the duration of your online diary, or "web log", or simply "blog". Me, I call it a website.
But that's neither here nor there.

More food, please, and more recipes.
