New Recipe with meatballs

As I had said previously, one of my new year's resolutions is to share some recipes with you all.

A while ago I didn't know what to cook so just looked around the fridge & the cupboards to see if I can find anything useful.  To be honest this usually happens towards the end of the week when another shopping trip to the supermarket is due. That's how i come up with various recipes :)

What I had was:

Fresh beef meatballs
baby hot-dogs

So I made this dinner & hubby really loved it.
I started by shallow frying the meatballs, then added one small sliced onion and the hot dogs. Then added mushrooms, salt & pepper. Then added some dry herbs such as thyme, oregano & basil. Then added a can of chopped tomato & some tomato purée.  Then made some couscous & when the meatballs where cooked added the couscous to the same pan for five minutes.   I then served it with tortilla bread & some olives mixed with feta cheese.  It was yummy : ) I suppose you could have it with any pickles or a side salad. 
It also goes with a glass of red or white wine.

Hope you all are having a great week.



  1. That sounds great Lily! Some of the best recipes are made when we are low on ingrediants, lol. The olives and fets cheese look good too, hmmmm. I love olives!

  2. Very creative! It does look good. I think it's fun to get creative when you only have a few ingredients to work with! As Mandie said, that's when some of the best recipes are made! Have a great week!
