It’s rainy outside, oh so cozy here in my office, and I have a lot of work to do. So instead of talking about our rehearsal dinner (which would take me over an hour), I thought I would share with you the killer meatball sub I made for my hubs last week AND show you a few professional pictures our photogs posted last night (OMG wait until you see these!).
I’ll set the scene in my kitchen…
Cooking some diced green pepper, yellow onion, and garlic in olive oil.
Added a can of diced tomatoes. Seasoned the sauce with salt, pepper, oregano, parsley, and dried onion flakes. I let this mixture simmer for a good 30 minutes until it was thick and delicious.
I used ground chuck, diced green pepper, diced yellow onion, garlic salt, a splash of worchestershire sauce, a tablespoon of jar sauce, handful of italian breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, and oregano. Mr. Bear mixed it all up while I tended to the sauce. Then I formed it into balls and cooked them for 20 minutes in 400degreeF oven.
I flipped them over and cooked the meataballas for 5 more minutes so they were extra crispy.
Hollowed out one end of a loaf Italian bread, sliced in half, added some of my pepper tomato concoction, meatballs, and white american cheese. Then I baked this baby on my pan of love until the cheese was ooey gooey.
After adding a little more sauce, I sliced the sandwich in two and let Mr. Bear go to town.
He said it was the BEST meatball sandwich he has ever had! Normally I make my meatballs with ground pork, one egg, and a few other spices, but this time I didn’t have those ingredients. They were moist and oh so delicious (I may have sampled one or two despite my tummy’s hate for red meat!
And now for some incredible photos by Brandon and Susan Cook of Addilay Photography. They continue to make me swoon…
After the ceremony the Bears – or rather – The H’s – stealing some alone time on the beach.
A romantical kiss in the sunset…
Amazing detail shots… funny how my shoes were supposed to be green, and turned out bluish gray! I love how you can see both of our hands holding the knives in the cake cutting photo.
My gorgeous bouquet!
