It seems my little man still hasn’t regained his appetite. On the walk home from school I told him what I had made for dinner.
“Err gross! You can’t have meatballs & cheese together or cheese & meatballs.”
“Why’s that?” I said.
“You just can’t…it’s gross!”
However, it did get better.
“Umm, it looks good…” He said as he came to the table. “…it smells good but will it taste good?”
Unfortunately, after only but a few mouthfuls he conceded;
“I’ve had a bit. It looks good and it tastes good but I just haven’t got the appitite…put 8 out of 10 Daddy.”
Never mind, I’ll stick it in the freezer.
They are called ‘cheesy meatballs’ because I stuffed each meatball with cheese before cooking it. I saw it on a tv program years ago.
The sauce is made up of onions, garlic, bacon, tomato puree & half a bottle of red wine. I cooked the meatballs before and added them to the sauce before cooking it all for a further 1 1/2 hours.
