Ok, today's theme is...Dinosaurs! I love dinosaurs. They are the coolest things in the world. If you don't agree, then you're a quite weird.
Anyway, I got a request to talk less about the ingredients in my recipes and more about the skills that I learn. I think thats a bit too much about me, but of course I will acquiesce to the request.
The skills I've learned since I've started this blog contribute often to things I make.
The first time we used dried herbs, I learned that with dried herbs you crush them. I did that tonight with dried rosemary. My knife skillage is mammothly amazing and I now know how to smash stuff with a pan, but tonight I used a tenderizer to smash the crackers for the meatballs.
I also now know how to improvise, like tonight when I printed off this recipe, I didn't print all of it so I make my own sauce. I know I can do that, now.
Now to make this beastin' recipe of meatballs, you put beef and pork in a bowl. Next you crush crackers and add it to the bowl and add dijon mustard and rosemary and oregano. Then you mix with your hands.
You roll them into balls and cook them in a frying pan.
Then you cook pasta. Quinoa, of course.
For the sauce, you put in chopped onion and garlic, then add it to the small sauce pan. After it's golden, add diced tomato and cook it. After a couple minutes you add a bunch leaves of basil to it. Next, you plate it--or bowl it--in this case.

Now, today I typed my own post (no dictating, but mom did edit) so BE PROUD--or no. I am. Now, since I just realized I didn't talk about dinosaurs tonight, I will save the dinosaur theme for tomorrow. Exciting...
Thank you and good night.
