spinach and parmesan meatballs

Crikey, it's binning it down today. It's not cold, just very very wet, and by the time I get home it's certainly blowing up a hoolie. This, combined with the fact we're two days off pay day means we're heading only one way for dinner tonight - the freezer.

Serendipitously I've been asked about this recipe a lot recently (recipe below), and what's the only thing in the freezer other than mini milks and an ice cube tray of red wine? Bingo!

It's just as well it's a swift dish as last night somebody got up at 01:15 and stayed awake, demanding nibbles, television, playing and mucking about until about 06:00, so we're both absolutely shagged. Having said that, Ana hits the motherlode on tonight's Grand Designs, if they'd managed to include a barn for Nigerian Witch Children she'd have been in seventh Heaven.

Also, slowly slowly catchee monkey - I've managed to get around to dealing with *last* Tuesday's pasta and beetroot soup fest, and Wednesday night's Book Club.

Food of the Milos
Denying him nibbles or snacks this morning backfires slightly as the moment is lost and he hardly eats anything at Julia's before nursery. Things slightly perk up at lunchtime when he eats his chicken, veg and pasta but refuses pudding, but last night's macaroni cheese proves too tempting. Fingers-crossed he doesn't wake up tonight.

  1. Grand Designs was devastating! I can only imagine that very little sleep has made this even more so. I am totally all over the meatballs idea for this week - it looks lurvely! x
