I have to admit, every time I make meatballs, I think of Sher. Weird, I know, but we all have our ways of remembering...
Anyway, Mission Use Food From The Freezer Because we Are To Poor To Buy New Stuff (heretofore known as Operation FreezerRaid) is underway. This easy dinner came from a pound of ground pork lurking in the freezer.

Pork Meatballs in Gravy
Serves Four

1lb ground pork
1 onion, finely diced, split
1 egg
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
herbs, to taste ( I used sage and oregano.)
salt and pepper
1/4 cup breadcrumbs

Combine ingredients, using only half of the onion. Cook a small piece to test for seasoning. Form meatballs and sear in a sauce pan over medium high heat. Set aside meatballs. In the same pan, using the fat from searing the meatballs, cook the remaining onion till soft and sweet. Add 2 tbsp flour and cook, stirring, for a minute or two. Add 1 cup of red wine, cook for 3 or 4 minutes. Add two cups of chicken stock and return the meatballs to the pan. Simmer for at least 30 minutes. (Longer is better.) Season sauce and sdjust for thickness.

Yay! A whole flurry of posts to read. I LOVE meatballs. Seriously one of my favorite meals in all its forms.

I can't wait to hear about your trip. And it's time to embrace our 30s! We're finally old enough to be considered adults (in my bizarre skewed time referencing frame anyway).

Good Morning!
Welcome home....I hope. Of course, you may have opted to stay in GB where you can spend all the GLB's you want. I can't make one either.( I only gain them.)We hope you had a wonderful time...after the lock business that is. Is that Heart of England trail the same one that Dr. Hister made a docu about? Thank you again for the postcard. I hope you are over jet lag by now and that you both still have jobs. It seems like forever since we talked. Loads of love,
