Making meatballs and mashed potatoes
A few hours later, I thought of meatballs, and decided that was what I would make. I planned to get started about 5:30 PM since TM likes to eat dinner late. Today, he surprised me by saying he was starving at about 4 PM.
So, I quickly peeled some potatoes and threw them into a kettle to boil for mashed potatoes. Then, I mixed up meatballs with seasoned bread crumbs, eggs, spices, and a little milk. I used a small scoop to form them into balls and then finished them by hand. Baking meatballs is such a stress-free way to a delicious dinner.
I mashed the potatoes with butter, milk and sour cream. We probably also should have had a vegetable, but we didn’t. We did have a few pieces of pickled okra, so maybe that counts?
I don’t really have a recipe to share for either of the items on the menu. I would encourage you to just give it a go. For the potatoes, just add sour cream and/or milk until it looks like a consistency that you’ll like.
For the meatballs, if you use a pound of hamburger, you need about a half cup of whole wheat bread crumbs, an egg, about a 1/4 cup of milk and any seasonings that sound good to you. Bake them in a 400 degree oven for 25 minutes, turning halfway through the cooking time.
