This is what started it all. I was in a rut. I didn't feel like cooking anything. I was tired of the same'ol same'ol.
Over at Jones Design Company, Emily shared her go-to recipe. She's mentioned it a few times and how much her family loved it. I thought I'd give it a try. My daughter loves olives, so I thought it'd be a good fit. This salad, without sounding too incredibly cheesey, is an explosion of flavor. Seriously. We've never had anything like it, and everyone loved it!
So, I've been on a mission to find meals that are light but don't scream "DIET" because my husband just ain't gonna eat it. The kids have been asking, "What's for dinner tonight?!" It's awesome! I love that we're excited and are trying something new. I've sorta been redesigning our dinners. Hmmm. What a surprise.
You should try this. Here are a few other hits that we've loved.
My son asked what was for dinner, and I spit out "fricken chicken" by mistake. I meant to say Dijon Mustard Chicken Fricka....Frickasay. Whatever. He looked at me a little funny. We had a good laugh over that one that of course was retold at the table. I feel like I'm saying a cuss word. It was wonderful though!
The end of this recipe is a little confusing, so I just had to wing it. Don't remember what I did. There aren't specific instructions for how long to cook them or at what temperature. I think I baked them at 350 for 30 minutes or so. Much better than I thought they would be. The best meatball I've ever made.
If you make any of these, let me know what you think!
