Durn right. If you make it out of the bathroom.

Up early from a too much beer run but you are right, I was burned out big time for a day. (don't want that again)

If you've got some time to spend in the kitchen, here's the recipe I use for your 'Comfort Food'(mine too, I call it New Jersey Sunday Dinner).......

The meatballs and sauce both use the same onion mixture.
Ingredients

Onion Mixture
1/4 cup olive oil
3 onions, chopped fine
8 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon dried oregano
3/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Easy Marinara
1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
1 cup dry red wine
1 cup water
4 (28-ounce) cans crushed tomatoes
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup fresh basil leaf
Salt
1 teaspoons sugar, as needed

Meatballs
4 slices hearty white sandwich bread
3/4 cup milk
3/4 pound sweet Italian sausage, casings removed
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
2 large eggs
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/4 pounds ground beef chuck (80 percent lean)
1 1/4 pounds ground veal

Instructions

1. For the onion mixture: Heat oil in Dutch oven over medium-high heat until shimmering. Cook onions until golden, 10 to 15 minutes. Add garlic, oregano, and pepper flakes and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Transfer half of onion mixture to large bowl and set aside.

2. For the marinara: Add tomato paste to remaining onion mixture in pot and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add wine and cook until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Stir in water and tomatoes and simmer over low heat until sauce is no longer watery, 45 to 60 minutes. Stir in cheese and basil and adjust seasonings with salt and sugar.

3. For the meatballs: Meanwhile, adjust oven rack to upper-middle position and heat oven to 475 degrees. Mash bread and milk in bowl with reserved onion mixture until smooth. Add remaining ingredients, except ground beef, to bowl and mash to combine. Add beef and knead with hands until well combined. Form mixture into 2 1/2-inch meatballs (you should have about 16 meatballs), place on rimmed baking sheet, and bake until well browned, about 20 minutes.

4. Transfer meatballs to pot with sauce. Simmer for 15 minutes. Serve over pasta. (Meatballs and marinara can be frozen for up to 1 month.)


Going to try that D,G,, I'm game.

hope it's not too much.

G'day Wiggo and Good Evening Chris, Julie, Ian, Grant, Mike, Wingdi, TL and Zapped.

Just finished starting my pepper plant plugs, 56 plugs in 9 varieties all very hot. Trying to grow Trinidad Scorpion for the 1st time, that's the hottest known at 1.4 million scovilles.

Thanks for the lesson in the correct Black and Tan Chris, the local brewpub I was at uses the American Golden Ale they brew as the base with Guinness of course. I could become seriously enamored of that combination.

Julie the Avatar is great, I like the lighthouse.

Good luck with the cyber Gods Wiggo, and CHEERS! Everybody.



D.G. some one slipped me one about a year or so ago, knocked me shorts off. (Ghost Chili)
