After being on vacation meal planning is just so hard, the cupboards and fridge are bare on purpose giving you not much to work with and I am just dreaming of those giant pizzas I blogged about yesterday. Alas one cannot survive on dreams so after some pouting I have a plan!
Monday – Lovbiff and Fries – ok so these were the two easily edible things lurking in the freezer
Tuesday – Creamy Tomato, Spinach, and Sausage Pasta
Wednesday – Sweet and Sour Pork – Joy of Cooking recipe which is just perfect
Thursday – Chow Faux Mein – recipe coming soon – also Mr. H came up with the name
Friday – Pork and Rice Burritos
Saturday – Nachos
Sunday – End of Week Chili and Rice – All the odds and ends into the pot and serve with rice!
Last week I shared a recipe for meatballs in tomato sauce served over spaghetti noodles and today I am sharing how to use that recipe to make meatball subs!
15-20 meatballs – homemade or store bought
Tomato Sauce – Around 3 cups – it really depends on how soaked you like them!
What to Do:
Prepare your rolls
What we do is buy the pack of baguettes that are meant to be heated in the oven. I first slice them in half and then carve out a niche for the filling and then heat them in the oven till lightly browned.
To do this cut a straight line across one side of the baguette, or roll or whatever bread you have, and then from the inner end make a slightly curved cut out and then scoop out the bread between the two cuts like making a little canoe in the bread.
This makes a stable base for filing of any kind as well as making them easy to transfer from baking dish to plate.
Once meatballs are cooked and sauce is heated through fill your bread and cover with cheese and bake.
Super easy meal and great for a Friday night playing games and drinking beer!
