Swedish Meatballs

Remember those trips to Ikea where the budget-friendly furniture finds are the last things on your mind but all you can think about are those amazing swedish meatballs? Well, that was always me. But since we’ve moved to the Bay Area, our nearest Ikea is in the middle of the most trafficked area in the entire city so it’s really hard to get my swedish meatball fix when needed. Thankfully, I’ve found a homemade version that tastes even better than the original. These swedish meatballs have been on my bucket list for nearly 3 years, and I’m so glad to finally cross this off my list. And the sauce – you can’t forget about that creamy, heavenly gravy sauce that these meatballs are smothered in with the browned up meatball bits. Nothing beats homemade meatballs smothered in a creamy gravy sauce, and they taste much better than the IKEA version!

Kinda need one of those for the Superbowl. One time we tried to stream a live football game from the interwebs and somehow we ended up with a very scrachy, blippy, fuzzy NFL game with the audio all in Spanish. We also had a similar problem for the Olympics last summer. But you know what happens in the Philippines? But the Superbowl. Sorry, guys. Zucchini Parmesan Crisps.

But instead of the usual donut holes I snack on during the day, I decided to try something a little more healthier and something that included veggies and greens.

In addition to being excited that it’s Friday (and Valentine’s Day!) I’m also jazzed that warmer weather is on the way. We’re only talking 35 degrees here, give or take a few degrees, but up until this week we haven’t been above freezing since January. Wretched. However, like a friend recently mused on Facebook – what the hell would we talk about if the weather was just average?
