tasty balls’ on a bun…

So early this morning I woke to the craving of a meatball ‘parm’ sandwich… I, not shunning a good old fashioned pizzeria, decided that I would make a beautiful pot of sauce [enough to have leftovers for other occasions] and homemade meatballs!
A trip to the market yielded everything I needed to pull this home-run together…
While the sauce simmered away, I got cranking on my balls’… and I must admit I offer up some of the best tastin’ balls around!
To bring this whole story together and serve it up, I toasted some buttery brioche buns, sliced some fresh mozz [melted this of course] and capped these bad boys and began chomping!
Needless to say, one sandwich per person was no way enough…

a side dish that stole the show!!

I’m cuckoo for couscous, so tonight as a side dish I made Israeli couscous mixed with red, green and yellow peppers.
Hearty, homey and best of all easy to prepare; these little beads take on the flavor of almost everything you incorporate with it. So, I started by sautéing the peppers in a tiny amount of olive oil, then added some hot chicken stock and the little pearls of goodness. Brought everything to a boil, reduced to a simmer and covered until the little balls swelled up and turned into some really big, plump balls! Stirring occasionally, and before I knew it, I was shoveling those yummy orbs of delight into my mouth…
