Spaghetti And Meatballs- Nothing Special Today..


I still have not gotten back into the swing of things cooking. Last night I worked the kitchen for a party at our club- late night,last night! I hadn't been down there much, and had alot of catching up with old friends. The band was good, the crowd was fair, and the food was grill stuff- burgers, brats, hot dogs, onion rings, and fries. A fun night, considering how late alot of us stayed!
Today, as the headline shows, we are having the classic spaghetti and meat balls. Simmer some meatballs in a good home made red sauce, (add some sliced mushrooms, if you like!) spoon over pasta, sprinkle with Parmesan- and you're eating in no time! Sunday is usually my day to cook a little fancier than normal- but not today! Sorry about a less than exciting photo- those are the left-overs going out the door with my son... I'm planning on taking a few days off around Labor day- plan to stay at our place up north and take day trips out of there as a base! Remember to take pictures, Buf!

Looking forward to the photos, relax and have a good time. Meatballs are one of my sons favourites as well, he always takes home whats left (his girlfriend, doesn't do cooking)....

Reminds me of that song..

On top of ole smokie
all covered in cheese..
I lost me poor meatball
when somebody sneezed..
It rolled off the table
and onto the floor..
And then my poor meatball
rolled out of the door..

:) you have the most loveliest of breaks.....

oh and Buff..... I miss you to...... and take lots of photos...

Even in tupperware it looks delish!

deb said...

it's the week for spaghetti & meatballs.

Romi said...

Always trying to perfect the spaghetti sauce recipe. Yours looks really good! Today was a pot roast kind of day with carrots and potatoes and gravy with homemade cheese biscuits and an apple cake for dessert. I love to cook.

Romi said...

By the way...yours was my most favorite comment on my blog for the school bus...magical:-) Thanks for leaving it. It cracked me up.

Queenie- I'm kinda burned out- need to get away for a change of scenery..
dogB- Had a potluck seafood lunch friday, with a good selection.. I would eat fish just about anytime but breakfast..
marmy- We sang that song over here too! Thanks for the well wishes..
tenter- Our economy has made inexpensive pasta meals very important, but I eat it 'cause I like it!
R.L.L.- We were just talking today how tupperware must be going broke- with all the storage choices we now have!
deb- Your post on it influenced me!
romy- I once won a 3rd prize in a city wide cooking contest. Guess what the prize was? A cooking class! It was a great 3 hr. seminar on pizza and sauces- learned to make a killer sauce! I had alot of smart remarks for that bus picture, but decided to keep it "clean'"....

doggybloggy said...

you need to try a big plate of fried catfish, with buttery grits and easy eggs....a breakfast you will want again and again...

TavoLini said...

we're having the same thing for dinner tonight :)

TavoLini said...

and reading through the comments--I have to concur with Doggy. Fish and Grits is one of my all time favorite breakfasts! (hard to find grits in Michigan though...)

Mona said...

Wow! I Love meatball curry! & that meal looks groovy!

have fun Buf! Take care! Have a fun filled & a safe trip !

(((HUGS)))

I like meatballs too. Today I'm making Kleftico (Lamb shanks with red onion, garlic, tomatoes, red wine) cooked very, very slowly until the meat is falling off the bone.

You have a good rest and come back refreshed Buff. :)

buffalodickdy said...

G-man, I am looking forward to the new coach! Hope a quarterback "steps up" quickly..
DogB- Had catfish Friday, and it is probably mild enough for breakfast! May try grits again someday...
tav- You know it! That's a Southern thing..
mona- Meatballs are very versatile, many different sauces can be used!
Ake- Love lamb shanks slow cooked- tend to make an exceptional gravy with the renderings...

Michelle Ann said...

When I was growing up...this was my favorite meal and it was always served with a chilled glass of milk. YUM! Your looks delicious.

Tanya Kristine said...

mm...brats...oktoberfest is a'comin!

Jeff B said...

We always have some red sauce (gravy, if you ask my wife) in the freezer for just such an occasion.

buffalodickdy said...

michelle- I'm glad you had fond memories of these things- Imagine living and growing up with nothing like this- good solid food, but with no spices... The Dutch in this part of the world ate the blandest food you could imagine!
Tanya- I love brats! Coated in Polish mustard...
Jeff- My wife gave up questioning my cooking long ago- she just eats the heck out of it!

Vodka Mom said...

Okay, so not only do i love your blog- your header CRACKS ME UP! I had to bookmark just so I could see the word rectum.

hahaha

Roger said...

Haave a good time up North Buff!

buffalodickdy said...

Vodkamom- Welcome to the blog! Stopped by yours, and I'll be back!
rog- So far, we're going to hit the Shelby gem factory- where they produce the synthetic gemstones, a couple of casinos, and more to be named later...

pinknest said...

hold the pasta...i'll just take that nice container of meatballs.

Maddy said...

Ooo a few days away. Now that would be lovely. Have a fabulous time!
Cheers
