Sunday night, I actually celebrated the great day of the meatball: National Meatball Day. I thought, in honor of Dr. Meatball's game-changing discovery, I'd splice together a few hybrid dishes and see if we can't get some Darwin-style meatball evolution happening.

Any region with winter (like us) welcomes a holiday like National Meatball Day with open arms.

I made three dozen meatballs over the weekend. Where I found the time between Googa Mooging and...oh, that's right. I was one of the unlucky "few" unwilling to stand in a half hour line for pork belly in the searing heat. I gathered my dignity and souvenir Googa Mooga plastic stemless wine goblet and went home to take my frustration out on several pounds of ground meat. My theory was that a wild abundance of meatballs would make me feel better. And I was right.

I am begging you to try this Fettuccine alle Cipolle — it’s a must! This recipe is so easy to prepare — adding in the wine and stock gives the lamb such a lovely flavor and the onions create a truly creamy texture. Even thinking about this dish makes my mouth water. In fact, I paused through writing this intro to make this very dish.

After all the ingredients are prepared, we use a bechamel sauce with yogurt, giving it a light but very creamy texture that rounds out the dish. In addition, each casserole is built in individual dishes and baked to order. The end result is a hot bubbling moussaka cooked just for you. Kali Orexi! Bon Appetit!

groundhog day 2012

Anyway, my stomach for game meat has its limitations. So rather than suggest a bunch of ways to do away with, cook and incorporate actual groundhog into your lunch today, I'm going to pretend that ground hog, better known as ground pork, is enough to pay homage to that baby lettuce thief's whole day he gets to celebrate himself. (Jerk). The most obvious example of which you can see in the above photo. Idea #1: sculpt a groundhog using only ground hog.

the history of chili con carne

Anyone can create an original pot o’ red with the right blueprint, yet that first delicious spoonful only cracks the surface of chili con carne. Dig in and you’ll find a culinary rabbit hole of fiery flavors, ingredients, techniques and history. But to fully appreciate where this dish can go, you first need to know where it began.
