Sunday is usually my prep day, but this week's menu didn't involve much prep work. I did, however, cook a proper Sunday dinner tonight - Spaghetti and Meatballs.
I used Lidia's recipe for meatballs, which includes ground beef, pork and veal, breadcrumbs, parsley, garlic, Parmesan cheese and an egg all mixed together. I fried the meatballs after dredging them in flour and then finished cooking them in the sauce. I cooked the sauce for about 4 hours, using two cans of whole tomatoes that I pureed, garlic, minced onion, bay leaves, salt, pepper and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Right before I added the meatballs I put in a can of chicken stock because the sauce was already nice and thick.
I also made garlic bread with cheese using ciabatta bread my mom brought over when we moved. A salad completed the meal, which was very satisfying both to eat and to make. While I was cooking SP was assembling my new prep table, so the kitchen is well on its way to being workable.
