ooooooooooooh, ah, and, oh, um, stuff grapeleaves too please please please

There's no way I can top last nights dinner so I'm not even gonna to try.

It'll be tenderized beef patties [as normally used for Chix fried steak] that I have in the freezer. I bought a box of button white shrooms yesterday that I'll use along with this recipezaar for cubed steak
Mom will be here and I want something she can't get at her Assisted Living residence. She loves salad so I'll do a special one for her. Her mother was head pastry chef at a prominent Universary and she often speaks of missing her parents cooking so cloud biscuits I'll serve too. Hope lots of gravy is made by the meat baking.
Dessert will be the Gingerbread cake from last night along with the sauce. It was sinful

Hi Lyndalou,
Tonight we'll be having... the lamb with Greek salad, rice with berries ( Persain dish)
Feta, olives, French bread, greenbeans with tomatoes ( Greek side dish)
Salmon dip ( lol...recipe from Greek MIL but...not a Greek dish at all) and roasted Potatoes. It sounds like a lot but...company is coming and one person has health issues so, I want there to be LOTS of choices for him.

1 lb hamburger or ground lamb
1 egg
1/2 cup bread crumbs ( I use garlic flavored ones)
1/2 cup fresh parsely torn in to small pieces.
1 small onion, greated or chopped into very small pieces
1 tsp salt or more to taste
1/2 tsp pepper


Directions:
mix all ingredients together

shape in to balls

roll in flour

fry in good olive oil!!

eat

enjoy

ask for more

Sounds good. My recipe for Greek meatballs includes cinnamon, which gives it a warm, exotic flavor. Also, I bake them rather than fry - much less labor-intensive

I have some fresh ravioli in the fridge, so will serve that with Newman's Own spaghetti sauce with pesto added, a green salad, and garlic bread.
