Today I love….Greek Balls….

30 Aug

Ok….yeah, yeah….apologies in advance for the post title….

Not this sort of Greek Balls!!!

NO NO NO You bad, bad people!!!

Oh, damn…not these ones either….

Source: Google “Greek Balls”…go to images….you will unfortunately find these pics and many more gems!!!(???)

BUT ANYWAY:

THIS is what I’m talkin’ ’bout Willis…..

Catrina’s Greek Balls

So go and get yourself about 500g lamb mince –

Safeway is normally the place to find it but we found it at Coles tonight as well!

Then mix it up in a bowl with:

1/2 diced onion

Fresh coriander seeds – ground…or coriander powder

Oregano to taste

1 Egg

2 Tbsp Breadcrumbs

2 tsp crushed garlic

Diced fresh parsley (from your garden – of course!)

Make the mix up and shape it into lovely little balls…..about 3cm big

Fry them up till they are hot and toasty and then serve the lovely balls on top of a fresh pita bread with Tabouli, sliced onion, tomato and lettuce as well if you like – don’t forget the yogurt/cucumber/garlic dip = Tzatziki!!

Then….roll it up and go, go, go for your Greek Balls!!!

Today I love….Power Laces

30 Aug

OH. MY. LORDIE*…….

I nearly cried when I saw this….for a number of reasons:

1. I am a qualified shoemaker so I can appreciate the idea and workmanship that has gone into this invention.

2. I loved all of the Back to the Future movies as a kid and also as a big kid now as well!

3. The future is arriving……”cue Close Encounters music”

4. I’m excited for this girl and am looking forward to following her successful journey!

Ok, ok, ok …..This is what I’m on about folks:
