Mom’s Are The Best

As some of you may know I’ve been down for the past couple days. I had a bicycle wreck Saturday and have been pretty banged up. I have such loving friends and family and don’t know what I would do without them. My mom came and spent the day with me on Saturday! She did what moms do and tried to be as helpful as she could. She decided to make me dinner. I had some ground beef from the locally grown market that needed to be cooked. You see I normally pick up my food at the locally grown market on Saturday before twelve. I had the wreck about 11 and was more worried about not getting my veggies than I was about getting to the doctor. LOL You see how important food is to me. I had Kyle go pick it up for my while a friend took me to the emergency room. Kyle made it there before twelve and came straight to the hospital. The frozen meat sat in the car and de-thawed so it needed to be cooked in the next few days. Long story short, she made meat balls!! I told her that  I was planning on making meat balls with the meat but had never made them before. She hadn’t either so we pulled out the Better Homes and Garden book and searched.


She took a Swedish meatball recipe and tweaked it. She used all beef and added fresh chopped spinach.

I will have to get the recipe from her but I know it involved Italian bread crumbs, onion, spinach, nutmeg, egg, and milk. Check out the pictures!







She served them over whole wheat noodles with the sides being carrots, sautéed spinach and bread



It was really yummy! I am defiantly going to make these myself sometime. Thanks Mom!
