The weather is getting chilly…. it’ll be in the 30’s tonight and that is COLD for Southern California… where did the warm weather go? I don’t even think I have a coat that will allow me to be outside for more than 3 minutes in 30° I’ll just have add some layers, but I do know when it’s time for comfort food and if it’s quick, it’ll sure get my approval.

This is that meal.

Minimal ingredients, real food, and ready fast…yum!!

  • While that is cooking, make a vegetable. I cooked some asparagus in a skillet and added a little olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  • As soon as the meatballs reach 165° internal temperature and the potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife, you're ready to eat.
