I on the other hand, ordered the Plaza Burger,
an 8oz. patty, beautifully cooked medium rare,
topped with my choice of cheese: bleu
served with also my choice of side: onion rings
and a pint of Founders All Day IPA

*blech*
I could only eat half my linner ...

DH: Why'd ya order that? You know I don't like any of that
Me: I know


What is on your table?

Greek meatballs, served over couscous with tzatziki, green salad on the side.

I have no idea if Greeks made meatballs, but these included feta, mint, parsley and lemon juice. If they didn't, they should, as they were pretty tasty.

Yes. Greeks make meat balls. They are called Keftedes...

What is on your table?
The first part of your post reminds me of the old joke about two yentas:
1st yenta: this food is horrible, just horrible!
2nd yenta: I know! And the portions are so small!

Probably just a sammie and a milkshake tonight for dinner. I had Chinese delivered to the rehab center for Mark and me. I am gonna make those blackberry brownies with chocolate stout tonight though. I’m notoriously bad when it comes to baked desserts, so we’ll see what happens!

Good to know. I wonder how many cultures make meatballs. I know that some variation of dumplings exist across many cultures. Italians call them raviolis.

I’ll bet just about every culture’s cuisine includes some kind of meatball. Can anyone think of a country or culture that doesn’t?

I don’t think vegans qualify as a culture, although most cultures have a percentage of vegans. And vegans DO have their meatballs, they’re just not made with meat. Let’s not rehash that debate here, though.
