Mara taxes me regularly with being too hung-up on following recipes. She would have been proud of me tonight!
I had a yen for meatballs, and we had a bag of frozen turkey meatballs from Whole Foods sitting around, calling to me. I looked up “turkey meatballs” in Epicurious, and the few recipes that came back were tough and demanding. The last thing you want on Sunday night.
Well, I saw a number of recipes pairing meatballs with tomato sauce, and I looked in the fridge and saw leftover Harissa dressing from a previous Crummy-Cook exploit. I thought, “let’s put the Harissa dressing on the meatballs”. Then I thought, “that’s a bit intense, let’s cut them with something.” Inside the fridge, the Greek yogurt spoke to me. I mixed the yogurt with the Harissa and cooked it with the meatballs: a star is born!
