New Recipe: Meatball Rice Medley (a quick, one-dish dinner)
If anyone out there still reads my blog... Hi! It's been a while, hasn't it? We had to totally transfer/update this website and we're still working on the finishing touches, but I'm excited to be blogging again. Expect some posts from me, including some of the new recipes we've created in the past couple of years that have become favorites. :)
Life has its ups and downs, but one thing that stays the same is that the family expects dinner on the table every evening. With 5 kids and homeschooling, inevitably my dinners have become simpler and easier -- hopefully without sacrificing too much in the health and budget departments. ;)
This recipe for Meatball Rice Medley is one I created last-minute (i.e. 4pm, dinner due to be ready at 5pm!) and it was a total success. Joshua loves meatballs; particularly the ones from Costco that are flavorful and quick. I used those meatballs, cooked some fresh vegetables, and cooked some rice with my favorite homemade seasoning mix: Jamie's Spice Mix.
Tossed together, this medley has meat, vegetables, and grain -- a filling combination for hungry mouths, with a fabulous spicy flavor! Leftovers re-warm in the microwave for a quick lunch the following day.

Meatball Rice Medley was one of the meals I served when my parents came to visit us this past November. We had a total of 13 people here for meals, and a big stainless steel bowl of Meatball Rice Medley was just the thing to fill everyone up without me having to spend much time in the kitchen. My mom asked for the recipe, so before she left I copied it down onto a recipe card for her. :)
