10/01 Spaghetti and Meatballs

Posted: October 4, 2008 in Food and drink, Just Another Day, Taiwan

October 1st, is my brother Kevin’s birthday. So to celebrate his birthday, I made spaghetti with meatballs for dinner.
So, I went on
www.epicurious.com to find a yummy meatballs recipe.

It took me 3 days to go to 3 different supermarkets and Costco to get all the ingredients! (Note to self: Bring a shopping list next time)… If I remember correctly, I got the meat, eggs, parmesan, mozzarella, and… bananas from Costco, Tomatoes, breadcrumbs, onions and garlic were from 全聯, Parsley and mushrooms from Breeze Center… and something from City Super, I can’t remember… oh yeah, it was something else… Taco Night lah… nevermind… And the sauce and pasta were from Safeway in San Francisco…

The meatballs I made from scratch, with ground beef, onions, parsley, garlic, breadcrumbs, eggs, freshly grated parmesan, black pepper and salt. Mix it all together, pan fry it to sear the outside, and then bake it in the oven 375 degrees for 20 minutes to cook it through. Then throw it into my store bought Classico Pasta Sauce, simmer it, and viola! It turned out to be a lot better than I expected~

A meal of spaghetti with meatballs can not be complete without garlic bread!! So I made some garlic butter, spread it on sliced french bread, top it with some tomato dices, chopped green onion, and fresh mozzarella~  A couple of slices were slightly burnt, cuz I was too busy chatting away, but still can eat lah!!

Jay brought over some lettuce with Caesar salad dressing, Ryan and Ariel brought over a bottle of bubbly, and accroding to them, it’s the same wine that’s served in presidential banquets~

Ok, so before this all started, Jay also brought over some stinky tofu, and what did Ryan do? He added the pickled vegetables from the stinky tofu to his spaghetti… I really… don’t know what to say… How can you be so “台” lah!!!!!!!!!

So what’s for dessert? We threw whatever’s in the fridge into the blender. Kiwi, grapes, apples, banana, a cup of mango slushee, apple juice, and some ice cubes… It’s very…. Healthy~ hehehe It’s all good lah!!!

After everything was done, and down the stomach, it’s time to just sit and chat and talk shit about whoever’s not here… hehehe…
