Thursday, Meatballs, Pictures

Alexis is very excited today--they are having a firetruck visit today--that is all she talked about last night--how exciting when you are 5, everything is so new and wonderful.

Here is a picture of my meatballs I made yesterday--I used half beef and half pork--added egg, bread crumbs, minced garlic, W Sauce, salt and pepper. I baked them in the oven--it depends on my mood--sometimes I bake them other times I fry. Baking is easier clean up.
Then I got out my crockpot, filled with spaghetti sauce and added the cooked meatballs--I let it do its thing for awhile so the meatballs would saok up the sauce.
Made a nice green salad--remember to use romaine, green leaf or red leaf--those are the ones loaded with vitamins--I add iceberg for crunch--yummy!!! There is carrots, cucumbers, green onion, celery, tomatoes and cheese in this salad. I make a big bowl and then put the cheese and tomatoes on seperately so the leftover salad will last until the next day. This is the bowl served to my husband.
This is the meatball sub--I put three meatballs, sauce and cheese then melted the cheese in the oven--they turned out very yummy!!!

This is what it looks like outside today--very blue sky and warmer then yesterday.
My tomato plants--do you see the flowers--yay--now I am hoping for some tomatoes..LOL--my grandmother is in Chicago right now visiting, or she would help me with these---my thumb is not green, but I try:)

Here is Bunny on my mantle--->Happy Spring:)
Here is a photo of my tummy taken just now--->Almost 34 weeks!!! .....and last but not least---> I was looking at Alexis's baby book and came across this photo--it is my husband's favorite and mine too. I had just had my daughter and looking at her for the first time. My husband took this photo. I wish I had one like this with my son, but he was an emergency C-section, so there were no pictures:( I will show a picture of me holding him, after I woke up though:) That will be in another post.

Well, I had a lot of fun posting these pictures. I must get some things done around the house, and I want to visit all your blogs too. Dinner will be something with Pork strips. I hope everyone who stops here has a wonderful Thursday xoxoxo

What a beautiful photo of you and your daughter! Oh-to have a picture like that!

Another beauty of a shot is of your belly baby! I LOVE pregnant bellies and have been known to give 'love taps' to babies of my friends.

You are getting CLOSE to meeting your wee one...and I met you just in time to share in your joy!

My husband loves meatball subs! I make mine pretty much like you do, even down to putting them in the crockpot to simmer. Another favorite of our family is meatballs and brown gravy. I make the meatballs, then put them in the crockpot with a double recipe of brown gravy, then serve them over rice and homemade biscuits. Fattening, but they love it! ;)

Only a few more weeks till your new little one arrives - how exciting!

You're belly looks so tiny - I always looked like I was ready to "pop" at 30 weeks! You look great!

You look so cute and tiny in your 34 week picture, Julieann!! From 26 weeks on, people thought I was ready to pop!! It got to be a little embarassing going to WalMart week after week and having people remember me and say, "you STILL haven't had that baby???"

Awww, the picture of you with your daughter in the hospital is so beautiful!!! I cried when I saw each of mine, no matter how many you have, the first look at your new baby is like nothing else in the world. It won't be long now!!! :-)

Those pictures are making me so hungry! Everything looks delicious, especially the subs, one of Mr. P's favorites;) The picture of you holding your daughter for the first time was just precious AND priceless. Loved the "belly" shot, not too long now!

Maggie Ann said...

I've enjoyed your post! What a precious photo of you and your new daughter. Aren't crockpots great! The older I get the more I appreciate them. I'd like to buy another one so I can have a dessert going in one with the main course in the other. Why not...;)

Heather said...

Love your photos. And those meatballs look very tasty and moist. I heard that combining beef and pork will get you a better tasting meatball.
