Karl’s Kūbide Meatballs in Sesame Sauce

I am making a festival meal for one of Jan’s Chinese students. I wanted to make as many dishes as possible to show respect. Last week, I had made kūbide for one of our meals*, but I had some meat mix left over. I decided to serve meatballs an hor d’oeuvre.

Karl’s Weekend Beef Meatball Chili

I used canned beans for quick weekday chili. Cook’s Illustrated has identified Goya as the best brand of canned beans, because they are processed fresh in the fields, instead of laying around in storage for an unknown length of time. This is more of a weekend variation on the theme.

Karl’s Tapas: Albóndigas de Cordero (Lamb Meatballs)

I am making a Spanish tapas dinner for this Sunday. I had left over lamb mixture from my stuffed pepper tapas. Meatballs are another form of tapas, and an easy solution to the problem of what to do with my excess. In Spain, they would usually be served with some kind of sauce on the side.

Karl’s Party Tandoori Chicken Meatballs

Miriam and Chris moved recently and they had a house-warming this weekend. A few weeks ago, I made Tandoori meatballs and I decided to make some “party-sized meatballs” for their gathering. This was made slightly more complicated by their request that these be carbohydrate-free.

Karl’s Minestrone with Mini Italian Meatballs

My potato plant died this week, so I harvested the potatoes. This was actually a sport from the year before, but if it really wanted to grow who am I not to water it? I ended up with five small potatoes. These were not enough to make a dish by themselves, so I would have to add them to something.

Karl’s Spanish Turkey Meatballs

Jan wanted gazpacho for dinner. I do not consider this a meal in itself, it is a liquid salad. She agreed to let me add meatballs, but only if they were turkey.

Karl’s Curried Leek and Lentil Soup with Karl’s Chicken Tandoori Meatballs

This morning Jan asked for my potato and leek soup with chicken. I have done that and this blog always pushes me to try something new. What could I do that both answered Jan’s desire, but also be completely new and different?

Karl’s Hoisin Turkey Meatballs

Eilene’s friends are coming over again for Game of Thrones and this week’s theme is “marshmallows.” [Teenagers—what can I say.]  Eilene has requested sweet potato casserole. This was a dish my mother, Claudia, always made for Thanksgiving. Sweet potatoes are however a side dish, but the meal still needed a main dish.
