    ... Probably due to my love of red wine. :c


    So I made stuffed shells this week, recipe gleaned from Allrecipes.com.

    I followed it to the letter because I'm a nervous cook and i didn't want to fuck it up.

    There are a couple things I will change the next time I make it. So sit back and enjoy!

    Here's the recipe, first and foremost. Also on the menu - meatballs, sauce, and roasted brussel sprouts! :yay:

    What do you make? We have Italian dinners at least 3 nights a week if we're both home.

    Meatballs - 1.5 lb. meatloaf mix, panko bread crumbs, garlic clove crushed, one egg, and salt & pepper. Rolled them up into balls...browning until they go into sauce.


    Here they are simmering in some olive oil.

    I wish I was smart like you, then I could live alone in a shitty apartment. Besides you can't cook, you thought I shouldn't use a thermometer on a 15 pound pork shoulder. :jj: Oh it must be fun to go through life stupid and clueless like you Dave. Ignorance is bliss they say.

    Sauce simmering with diced tomato & garlic, salt, pepper. Just enough to finish cooking the meatballs once they are done browning.
