Today is National Meatball Day in the USA.
Our household will be celebrating at our dinner table tonight.
I have some marinara made of San Marzano tomatoes that
I 'put up' a few weeks ago at the ready.
And some MEATBALLS!
When I make these cuties, I use a pound each of ground chuck,
ground veal and hot Italian sausage that I get in bulk.
That makes alot of meatballs for just two people.
So I "IQF" the uncooked balls on a sheet pan in the chest freezer
and then pop them into a zip-top bag. This way I have them
ready to go at any time, like tonight!
I'll simply heat the marinara and toss in the defrosted
(but frozen is okay too) meatballs to gently
cook through on the back burner of the range,
boil up some pasta, reheat a loaf of Italian bread and then,
How will you celebrate National Meatball Day?
