I also cooked up some shell pasta for Josh (sorry its dark...the lightening in our apartment is terrible):
My bowl- Meatballs over broccoli....I'm strange ;)
Josh and I got a fun package from Josh's mom today that included dried pineapple (!!) and this oat bran from TJs! Does anyone have any cool recipes using oat bran (bars, cookies, breakfast items??):
Good luck with the rest of your to-do list tonight!!
I love the little strips of spinach in the meatballs.
What a simple an easy recipe! I love the idea of subbing broccoli for pasta. :) Have fun busting your booty tonight!
Nice dinner!! Once again, I am at a loss for recipes, but I am sure you will do something good with your oat bran.
Oh - I love the bowls!! Where did they come from if you don't mind me asking?
Those meatballs look great!
mmm, i love adding spinach to meatballs :) if i have a chance i'll do a quick search on oat bran recipes...
thanks for asking, I am loving boston so far. Still need to get out on the town, but it feels very much like philly, so it was easy to feel "settled". almost unpacked, too! haha, I think i'm down to 1 box.
meatballs on broccoli sounds wonderful!
good luck with all of your to-do list :D
You are so not weird! I always use veggies as a base instead of pasta, broccoli being my favorite.
Sammie always uses oat bran, and I ate an excellent Sammie inspired meal the other day. It would be great for b'fast, but I actually ate it for dinner :) I made 2/3 cup blueberry tea, and then added 1/3 cup oat bran. I let the bran soak up the tea - 10-15 minutes or so. Then stirred in 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, blueberries, and some dry cereal for crunch. Topped it all off with a mini scoop of almond butter. It was creamy and delightful. Highly recommended!
yum! i love the idea of putting meatballs over broccoli! and they look great with the spinach in them :)
Wow, that looks amazingly delicious! Meatballs + broccoli! YUMMY! Thanks for sharing!
And good luck with the rest of the things to do. Have a great night!
haha! that seems like a good combo to me- meatballs over broccoli! oh wow it looks so good~
I love the recipe's simplicity and addition of spinach! I like the idea of putting it over broccoli, but I love pasta too much to pass up!!!!
I've never used oat bran!
Hmm... I wonder if I could make that with fake meat? It looks too good not to try... Good luck getting everything done tonight!
meatballs and broccoli looks ultra cool together!
ChocolateCoveredVegan uses oat bran in some yumm breakfast recipes, she got me into it, but i dn't have any sorry
Have a great night
I think meatballs over broccoli totally trumps pasta! I'm serious! That way I could have a slice of garlic bread or something on the side and really be set :o)
Spinach in meatballs make them sound healthier =) looks relly delicious.
Meatballs over brocolli sounds really good to me! (btw, it's Friday!) have any exciting weekend plans?
the meatballs look so good! i'm going to try the recipe for sure :)
I usually have broccoli as a side dish when I make something spaghetti sauce, but why not just sub it for the pasta. Thanks for a great combo idea. Isn't it funny how sometimes mixing things that sound weird usually taste the best.
Nice way to add in an extra veggie! You are always gettning packages! Lucky girl! Have a fun weekend? Any fun plans? We are having friends over tonight but I don't know what else we will do!
I think your dinner looks great. I cant believe I hadnt thought to BAKE meatballs before. especially after making turkey meatloaves in the oven. It just occured to me after reading this. THANK YOU. It will save me a messy pan to clean. :)
I don't think that's a strange combination! I love putting spaghetti toppings on vegetables. They pair really well together!
My job is going well- but I'm a 'job' gal, not a 'career' gal. I look forward to the day when my title is 'homemaker.' :-)
Are you still loving your new city? When do you move into your house?
mmm...your dinner looks good!
i've had success with substituting oat bran for AP flour in muffins before, but i usually just grind up oats in my food processor instead of buying oat bran...i'm pretty sure its the same thing
I know I saw the Larabars are on sale! Trust me I'm going to stock up this weekend! :)
Dried pineapple. Sounds great! By the way, cute plates.. :)
The meatballs sound great! I love making up a batch and having them in the freezer for whenever I'm ready. The meatball and broccoli combo looks really good.
My only idea for oat bran is muffins. Boring, i know. :)
