Recipe: Meatball Stroganoff

Meatball Stroganoff

Want to talk about a recipe that the whole family will love? This is it!  It’s so filling and amazingly delicious!  I will say that the original recipe calls for frozen meatballs and I dislike them with a passion; so take the time to make mini meatballs yourself with whatever mixture/recipe you like to use!  You won’t be sorry!  :)

Ingredients:

  • Homemade Meatballs
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp
  • 2 c beef broth
  • salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp parsley
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1 c sour cream
  • 4 oz reduced fat cream cheese
  • 1 c heavy whipping cream
  • Wide egg noodles
  • Parmesan cheese

Directions:

  • Add oil to a skillet; when oil and pan is hot, add meatballs to brown.
  • Add beef broth to deglaze pan.
  • Add spices, salt, ad pepper.
  • Let it just simmer away.
  • While it’s simmering, start cooking your noodles.
  • Add the heavy cream to meatballs; bring to a full boil so it thickens.
  • Then add sour cream and cream cheese.
  • Now add in the cooked and drained noodles.
  • Top with Parmesan cheese.

Review: All Our Yesterdays

All Our Yesterdays

This was the second book that I read for the book club that I’m in.  I have to admit, I did not vote to read this book and when it was announced that it was June’s read, I was a little disappointed.  I started the the book and it took me about 3 days to get into it, but when I did, it only took me about 2 days to finish it.  :)  Therefore, looking back on it, I’m really glad I stuck with it and checked it out.  It’s not the type of genre I would read due to it being pretty Sci-Fi, but once you get about 40% to halfway, you kind of forget what genre it is!

The main plot?  Time travel.  I know, there’s a lot of books and movies dealing with this subject, but this done is slightly different in my opinion.  I feel like this book really explains the “rules” as well as the characters to help guide the story.  Again, when the book starts out, it’s slow due to two characters being imprisoned for reasons unknown until later on in the story.  Em is the main female character who is torn between a lot of decisions throughout the book.  She things she has her mind made up, but soon realizes that past feelings may come back to haunt her.  Some things have happened in her life, to her friends, the to world that she needs to change.  The pressure is all on her and her love interest, Finn, to make sure everything works out the way it should.

And then there’s Marina, who is in love with her best friend, James. Jame is a handsome, introverted, science prodigy from one of America’s most famous families.  However, on one disastrous night, James’s life crumbles unexpectedly. Marina does everything she can to protect James, no matter what; even if it means opening her eyes to a truth so terrible that she may not survive it.  Em and Marina are in a race against time that only one of them can win.
