In light of Valentine's Day, we did a theme dinner to Lady and the Tramp!
We had a fabulous, fancy dinner! We had Shared Spaghetti and Meatballs, Lady's Caesar Salad, Garlic Bones, The Darling's Chianti, and Tony's Tiramisu!
Our Shared Spaghetti and Meatballs:
I found an awesome recipe for the Meatballs that I tweaked a bit. The original recipe can be found here! http://cookwithhoney.blogspot.com/2012/04/jens-incredible-baked-meatballs.html
1/2 cup of Milk
1/2 cup of Panko crumbs
1/2 a medium large onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon of italian seasoning
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of ground pepper
1/8 cup of minced basil
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Combine eggs and 1/2 cup of Milk with a fork
Add in hamburger, panko crumbs, onion, garlic, italian season, salt, ground pepper, and basil in a large bowl.
Add in milk/egg mixture
Form into golfball sized meatballs
Place meatballs on a non-stick cookie sheet and put in the oven.
Bake for 30 minutes
Cook half a box of Spaghetti according to box instructions
Top spaghetti with meatballs, parmesan cheese and some Bertolli red sauce.
Caesar Salad ingredients:
Italian Croutons (store bought)
Paul Newman's Caesar Salad Dressing
Garlic Dog Bones were sooo easy to make! I made them to directions on Pillsbury Crescent Rolls but I cut them in half and rolled them out. I knotted them at the end and sprinkled some garlic salt on top.
The Chianti was bought at our Albertson's for like $6.00. I don't judge wine. Wine is wine. And wine is good.
The Tiramisu was also store bought and pretty dang tasty! I put it on a serving tray and decorated it with chocolate syrup.
It was a very romantic way to start off our Valentine's week!
