Simple, homemade, pork meatballs get a flavor boost from a tangy, pineapple sauce that will please a crowd! Make some today and freeze some for another day.
Swedish meatballs … Porcupine meatballs … Italian meatballs … Spaghetti and meatballs … Meatball subs … Meatball soup … Baked meatballs … Fried meatballs … Crock Pot meatballs …
I started thinking about how versatile meatballs are and ended up channeling my inner Forrest Gump! “I know everything there is to know about … ” meatballs.
Our potluck family reunions have Arroz con Pollo, Picadillo (peak-uh-dee-yo) and Key Lime pie along with the bratwurst and sauerkraut, meatballs and currant cream pie.
Visiting this part of our family in Miami is an amazing experience. We have had paella (pie-ay-uh) prepared poolside at their home, fresh-caught shrimp from the keys, conch fritters and chowder in the Keys, and a rice pudding that I am still begging my cousin to teach me to make (you know who you are)!
Gyro … tzatziki … words that make my mouth water. But how DO you pronounce these words?
Wait for it …
Wrong … every time!
Well, for most of us it’s true. There are American pronunciations and Greek pronunciations. After a little web-searching I have decided to pronounce gyro (when referring to the sandwich) “yee-roh” and tzatziki “sat-zee-kee”. At least I know it is close enough to be understood when I want to order the Greek god of sandwiches!
