Spaghetti with Meatballs

I had quite a few garden fresh tomatoes, so I decided I would make spaghetti sauce from scratch with homemade meatballs.  I just wish I had made extra sauce to freeze...on the bright side, we did have leftovers for later this week.


I followed a very good recipe from All Recipes.
There were a few minor changes I made which I indicate below.
Meatballs1 pound lean ground beef1 cup fresh bread crumbs1 cup store bought bread crumbs1 tablespoon dried parsley2 tablespoons fresh parsley1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese1 tablespoon grated Romano cheese
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder 1 egg, beaten Sauce3/4 cup chopped onion (Also added 1/2 green pepper, 1/2 yellow pepper, 1/2 of a carrot and 1/2 of a roasted red pepper) 5 cloves garlic, minced 1/4 cup olive oil2 (28 ounce) cans whole peeled tomatoes  10 garden fresh tomatoes (peeled and crushed)

Winder Farm Nonfat Milk is $2.69 at Rite Aid!  That's the regular price!!  Cheapest I've seen it.  If you go to Rite Aid Video Values you can print 2 $1/1 non-prescription purchase coupons after you watch 2 commercials.

After you watch them go to the Rewards Tab at the top and print.  You can of course use these on something other than milk.  :)  I believe you need 2 $1 or more items to use both...but I could be wrong.  You may be able to use both to get the milk for 69 cents since the amount is over $2.

Also Winder Whole Milk is $2.99 I'll have my full Rite Aid trip up soon....it was awesome. :):)

British Pub Food

My husband is from southern Spain and he grew up eating fish about 3 times a week.  I'm from El Paso, Texas and the only body of water nearby is the Rio Grande; not exactly fish country.  Luckily he married a woman who loves fish.  We try to eat it about six times a month.

This last week, I made British Pub food for dinner.

On the menu was fried, battered Cod, chips (fries) and mushy peas.

COD:

I bought one fillet of cod and cut it up into about six pieces. 
Then I dipped it in flour which I had seasoned with garlic salt and pepper.
The next dipping was in egg. (Two eggs beaten together).
Finally, I dipped it in Panko and made sure all the pieces were nicely covered.
I fried the cod in extra virgin olive oil until done.

CHIPS:
We peeled and diced five medium sized potatoes.  Pieces were fried in extra virgin olive oil until done.  We then placed them on a plate lined with a paper towel to soak up some of that oil.  We sprinkled them with some coarse salt.

Mushy Peas:
