The Grinch who stole my egg sandwich and meatballs…

on October 24, 2012

If you live in the Grand Rapids area, are free Dec. 16, 2012, and want to support Wounded Warrior …. Come out and run or walk the Whoville 5k! Check out the website…http://www.whoville5k.com/ . Best part about the race????? A LONG SLEEVE PATAGONIA TECH SHIRT!!

Sasha and I went for a run this morning, and Sasha got a compliment from a friendly police officer. That made her day!!! I think it made up for the fact I made her run 4 miles straight without a swimming break in the middle. I Have to say, there is just something super awesome about running in the fall… I love it!

After I got back from my run, I had my second breakfast…oh was it so good!!! Fogarelli’s Import Market in Traverse City has all these amazing Italian meats and The Cheese Lady, well, nothing short of amazing. So I have prosciutto,  aged provolone, and fresh farm eggs from Knot Yet Farms. The end result is a egg sandwich from heaven…

So I found this awesome jewelry box idea on Pinterest….um, yeah, it looked like a good idea! I went to Hobby Lobby and Home Depot, bought what I needed…. EPIC FAIL. The box is so bad I couldn’t even post it on here!!!

Since I failed at arts and crafts, I started to cook… and let me tell you… I DID NOT fail at that!!!

Meatballs and Red Sauce

2 pounds ground venison

2 pounds ground beef

1 clove garlic

1 medium shallot

1 c mini bella mushrooms

1 c shitake mushrooms

1/4 c Penzy’s Tuscan Sunset Seasoning

1/4 c Pensy’s sweey basil

1/4 c grated Parmesean cheese

a couple shakes of red pepper flakes

a couple shakes of truffle salt

1/2 c Italian bread crumbs

1. In a food processor combine mushrooms, garlic and shallots.

2. In a large bowl mix all ingredients, including the mixture in the food processor. Mix with hands until it is well blended.

3. Form into 1″ balls and place on a parchment lined, rimmed cookie sheet.

4. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, check for pink meat. If it is pink bake for another 5 minutes.

Use homemade or store bought red sauce and enjoy!

* you can substitute pork for venison in this recipe.

    Yeah, not always so good at craft projects, but I can hold my own in photography, so I propose a day of cooking and photography! Wouldn’t it be fun to work together again?
