Exhausting weekend, each second of the day promised to an activity…Saturday morning dress fittings for my sister’s wedding, followed by singing in a church service, followed by stage managing a Doo Wop show at the clubhouse…then up really early to sing 3 services on Sunday morning…and on the way home a stop at Whole Foods. Once there, I felt the familiar tug to create a beautiful Sunday Dinner for my family. So drifting over to the meat counter at Whole Foods, I get the idea to make some gravy (the Italian pet name for pasta sauce), meatballs and homemade pasta. At the meat counter I buy some nice ground pork, ground veal, and ground beef, 2 mild Italian sausages plus a nice pork rib to flavor my sauce. I’m motivated despite being dead tired. I don’t want to miss one moment of what’s left of my weekend, and that means cooking.
So here goes:
Mix together well, roll into meatballs. I like them to be on the small side- less fattening this way!
And now it’s time to pour myself a nice glass of white wine. But before I take a sip…
I refill my glass a bit and continue with the meal.
OK, the homemade pasta is going to have to be a separate post all it’s own, another day soon, I promise.
And tomorrow….back to low point meals. That’s what I love about Weight Watchers- you can have your nice weekend meal and enjoy it without guilt. As long as you count your points and know that the rest of the week you have to be careful and stick to your guns. Happy Sunday everyone!
