Two interesting dinners

Meatballs in creamy parmesan sauce (Last night)

1 lb ground beef
1 egg
1/4 c milk
1 slice bread
Basil, salt, pepper

6 T butter
1 c milk
1/4 flour
1/2 c parmesan
Salt, pepper, garlic powder

Cooked pasta

Mix the first five ingredients. I used fresh basil from the garden — a good handful of leaves. I guess maybe a teaspoon or half a teaspoon dried basil would work. Salt and pepper to taste. Form into small balls — about an inch.

Cook in butter at medium heat until cooked through. Whisk remaining sauce ingredients and stir in. Cook a few minutes more until thickened and bubbly.

Serve over pasta.

My amounts are approximate; I used too much flour and tried to correct that here.

Bacon, Eggs, and Greens Salad (Tonight)

Five hardboiled eggs
Five strips of bacon
The rest of the head of broccoli, cut up small
Some carrot thinnings
Some peas from the garden
A lot of salad greens
