This post is also for my children who will one day read all the posts on this blog and will think this is the un-funniest thing you ever read. Especially you, Ian.
I made these "meat"balls:
Eggplant and Porcini "Meatballs"
I won't give you the whole recipe (here's the link) but obviously the stars of the "meat"balls are eggplant and mushrooms. Ian's very least favorite vegetables.
They came inside for dinner and saw me frying those babies up. (Quickly, because they weren't really the right color exactly) "YES! Meatballs!"
Ian: What's in these meatballs?
Me: Bread crumbs and onion. Garlic. Salt and Pepper. Eggs. You know, just the normal meatball stuff.
And he ate the "meat"balls.
He kinda knew though but I think chose to just not know exactly.
