Okay, so you know how I’ve said that Hannah doesn’t really like meat all that much? Like almost never! Except for chicken, any red meat is pretty much out of the question, unless its really tiny and cooked to death. Any hint of pink inside and it will quickly be put in a napkin and placed on the side of her plate.
She came into the kitchen as I was putting together the meatballs.
Hannah: “What are you making?”
Hannah: “How big are they going to be?”
Me: “About the size of golf balls.”
Hannah: “Could you make some for me, but make them tiny and cook them really good?”
Thus was born the tiniest meatballs I have ever made:
I didn’t really follow any real recipe. Just used up what I had on hand. I had leftover meat from our burgers and used the rest of the homemade garlic bread crumbs. Then tossed in some Italian seasoning, fresh shredded parmesan cheese and a splash of egg whites. I pan fried them in a smidge of canola oil and Pam.
I had 6 ounces of cooked penne, 4 ounces of sauce, 3 meatballs and a tablespoon of Parmesan cheese. I almost forgot the crushed red pepper! Don’t worry, after I took the picture I sprinkled my plate very liberally!
So I want to say there has to be thousands of 100 packsout there. Doesn’t matter what it is. 100 pack Cheetos, 100 pack oreo cookies, pretty soon they’ll be coming out with 100 pack meatballs! My friend Cassie at work picked up these for $1. The outside of the package looks so welcoming!
Here’s how big they are!
Isn’t that rediculous!!
My kitchen is a mess. Two things mostly happen when I make dinner – every once in a while I’ll set off the smoke detector, but the one constant is I make the biggest mess! I seriously can use about 5 different spoons and 8 bowls to make one dinner. It makes Hannah nuts. So much so, that I’ll be cooking, I’ll reach for something, and she’ll say “I already put it away!”
See you guys in the morning!
