It's official! I get the worst blogger ever award. It's been a week or two since I posted. ouch! I'm in quite a hurry today. I have so much to do to get ready for my trip to TN in two days, so naturally, this is the one and only day is 3 months that the baby won't stop screaming and crying for no apparent reason!
I made homemade spaghetti sauce with homemade meatballs the other day. It was fabulous!
In a large pot, put about 4 tbsp olive oil. Chop/Mince some garlic and let it soak in the oil. (about 6 cloves)
While the garlic is soaking, cut up a med/lg onion into tiny little onion-y pieces.
Go back to the pot and turnn it on med/high. Wait until you see little bubble around the garlic, and then throw the onions in there. Saute that until the onions are clear. Throw a couple bay leaves, some oregano, basil, parsley, and thyme in there. Turn to low.
Now you add the saucy part. Chop up about 6 good sized tomatoes. Throw in pot.
Add 2 Large cans of tomato paste. Add two cans of water. Throw all that in the pot.
In big bowl mix, 1/4 cup milk, 1 ish cup bread crumbs, 2lb ground beef, lots of parsley and thyme and garlic salt and pepper. (horrible punctuation) 1 egg, and I'm pretty sure that's it.
Mix everything with your hands.... form whatever sized balls you want and then drop them in the simmering sauce... Simmer for a couple hours and TADA spaghetti and meatballs!
