Makeup tips, film recommendations, how to make life easier for yourself, ask a quick question here.

There is an old Chinese saying: "To the ruler, the people are heaven; to the people, food is heaven". I am the people, and never has a proverb manifested itself as much as this has in me. Where other's do, I eat. It is high time I chronicled these sagas in accompaniment to my life.

Mah Meatballs

I don't have photos, because quite honestly I was working off my head and I wasn't sure how they were going to turn out, but believe me, they were good.

What you need:

half an onion, finely diced

2-3 garlic cloves, finely diced

A pound of ground beef

half cup parmesan cheese, grated

2 eggs, beaten.

bread crumbs

olive oil

dried thyme, parsley flakes (or like the real thing if you have it, but I had to make do with what was in my cupboards)

salt to taste

What to do:

In a pan, fry the garlic and onions until the onions are caramelised.

Mix the onions into the beef with the eggs, thyme and parsley flakes, and parmesan. Go in with your hands and mix everything, add a dash of salt, a reasonable dash for the amount of meat you have.

Add just enough breadcrumbs to make the mixture moldable. Form into small balls, (mine were about an inch big) and refrigerate for about half an hour to an hour.

Preheat oven to 350F (176C), drizzle a little olive oil into the baking tray and place the meatballs making sure there's a little oil under each, this would give you one crispy side. bake meatballs for 25-30 minutes. Serve immediately.
