Laptop Lunches #179

White nectarine slices, rice, baby carrots, sweet & saucy meatballs (recipe below) and a bit of snow pea-chestnut salad from some old cookbook I had around here.

A few thoughts:

One: My usual photography is better; this was a weird morning. But I promise that tomorrow things will be back to normal!

Two: Most people eat sweet & saucy meatballs only as an appetizer, but they can work out well as a meal with rice and things. Expand your repertoire!

Three: I made this primarily because I had the stuff around already, but it worked out anyway! It's always great when that happens.

Now, how to make them:

Sweet & Saucy Meatballs
Servings: 5-6

1/4 cup apple jelly
1/4 cup grape juice
6 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons water
14 oz. frozen meatballs

Mix all ingredients except meatballs in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Add frozen meatballs and lower heat to a simmer. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until hot.


  1. Would love to see a recipe for the snow pea salad! Looks great!

    1. Well...I actually wasn't too crazy about it. It had WAY too many chestnuts in ratio to the snow peas, and the flavor was weird. It was worth a try, but it just didn't work. It might with tweaking.
