I used to write-up the weekly dinner menu here, but I got tired of doing it. Well, I was reading a blog last week where someone mentioned writing her weekly on an index card. Now she has 52 index cards of weekly dinner ideas to look through for inspiration.
I usually write mine on a piece of paper which gets thrown at the end of the week. So, the blog will be my version of index cards.
S – Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/salad.
I used a can of whole San Marzano tomatoes and a can of crushed tomatoes. I cooked it the usual way with some crushed garlic, onion, basil. Once everything has gotten soft, I took my stick blender and blended for a minute to get the sauce smooth. I used to always discard the garlic and onion… it is what my father-in-law does, but I really liked the sauce with the cooked garlic and onion blended in. I had enough meatballs left-over to freeze and enough sauce to use for the pizza and the tortellini this week.
