I had the meatballs at Ikea over the weekend. Simple, cheap, but yummy.

They are tasty.

Mine took a lot longer to fix, and cost more than the Ikea serving, but I don't have to sit in rush hour traffic with the whole family for an hour or more each way to get them.

Beef vegetable soup.  Beefy, vegetabley, and soupy.  Home made, by me.  Better than a sharp stick in the eye.

Vegan soups based on green split peas is what I'm all about the past few days, trying the infinite ingredient variations.  Adding other legumes or potatoes is mediocre, carrots are OK, but the ingredient that works best is chopped asparagus added to the thin green goodness along with chopped onions and other spices like 5 minutes before it's done cooking.  Whole-grain pasta added ~8 minutes before it's done cooling works too.

This would be delicious served with grain-fed veal cheeks.

In Soviet Russia we ate wieners (what in America would be called a hot dog) not as fast food but as an entrée, usually with a side-dish of green peas:



Man, I could eat two dozen wieners and still want more!  That's how I got fat, and that's one of the reasons why now I'm a vegan.  So now I'm eating green peas mixed with spicy mustard, but no wieners.  Oh, man, how I crave me some wieners!  I'm going wiener crazy here!  I'm thinking about hot juicy wieners like every 1.5 seconds tonight!  Mmmmm  mmmmm....

But now I'm on a mission to mend. Everything that broke and make it glisten again. Strip down, redesign, construct, and improve. While the rest procrastinate I'll be making my move.

Dries out too easily. I get around that by using fresh herbs & finely grated veggies - usually onion & carrot - to add extra moisture, along with a little bit of olive oil or melted butter. The milk & breadcrumbs can help too, but I often have only Very Vanilla Silk in the house, so go with the veggies.

Boyfriend's mom makes these meatball-type deals with ground chicken.  There's usually some veggie-looking stuff in there, and I think she fries them in a large skillet...but she likes to add a few drops of water at the end to kind of steam them and keeps the lid on.  It works and they're pretty tasty.
